Marc Jacobs: A Fashion Prodigy
Marc Jacobs was born in NYC in 1963. He attended schools of Art and Design, and won many awards for his work during his education. While at college, he designed his first line of sweaters and sold them. In 1986 he designed his first collection with his eponymous label Marc Jacobs, launching his career in fashion. By 1994, he was ready to officially build on the Marc Jacobs label, and debuted his first official collection of menswear in the same year. What followed was a job as creative director of Louis Vuitton, and the astronomical growth of his own brand. In 2001, Jacobs introduced his second official line, Marc By Marc Jacobs clothes. This secondary line was a huge success. Jacobs has won countless awards throughout his career, including the Perry Ellis Award for New Fashion Talent. He has also worked with brands such as Perry Ellis, Louis Vuitton and Diet Coke.
The History of Marc By Marc Jacobs
Marc By Marc Jacobs was launched in 2001 by its namesake Marc Jacobs as a secondary label. The brand targets younger fashion, catering to young adults. The line also offered a more affordable, financially-conscious alternative to his main line, Marc Jacobs. The line contains Marc By Marc Jacobs shoes, bags, clothing and accessories, and soared in popularity after its launch. By 2013, Marc By Marc Jacobs was being sold in over 60 countries across the world. The brand combines Jacobs’ quirky, bizarre style with retro-inspired ideas, creating pieces that stand out. Unfortunately, in March 2015 Jacobs announced that he was retiring the label, choosing instead to focus on developing his main label, Marc Jacobs.
Street-Wise Style Without The Sex Appeal
Marc Jacobs’ style has been described as “street-wise” - his aesthetic combines aspects of grunge, high fashion and femininity to create his signature look. He has stated that his looks are never sexy, but rather hint at the idea of hedonism. Marc By Marc Jacobs gives many nods to cultural references, with printed t-shirts and Club Kid-inspired designs making appearances on his runways. His mash-up of effortless coolness and high-fashion aspiration have caused celebrities including Kim Gordon and Miley Cyrus to snap up his designs. Marc By Marc Jacobs designs aren’t for wallflowers. They’re made to stand out, like a flamingo in a flock of pigeons - unique but fabulous.
