Founded in New York in 1984 and majority-owned by LVMH since 1997, the eponymous brand developed by Marc Jacobs - Artistic Director of Louis Vuitton - has enjoyed rapid growth in both the United States and internationally.
In 1984 Marc Jacobs and Robert Duffy founded Marc Jacobs International based on two very simple concepts: a love for fashion and a commitment to quality.
After years of producing the Marc Jacobs women's collection exclusively, the company has expanded in several directions with two lines of ready-to-wear for men and women -Marc Jacobs and Marc by Marc Jacobs- as well as bags, accessories, shoes and the Marc Jacobs fragrances.
It is a source of great pride that despite extensive growth, the same concepts are the cornerstones of the company today.
Bright colors, oversize prints, layered looks, empire lines, rugby stripes, oversize bows and buttons, and pretty, prom-like party dresses.
The downtown crowd with eclectic or edgy tastes, including Winona Ryder, Uma Thurman, the Olsen twins, Drew Barrymore, Sophia Coppola, Scarlett Johansson, and Maggie Gyllenhall, Wafah Dufour,
