The designer Marc Jacobs was born in New York on April 9th 1963, where he attended the High School of Art and Design and the Parsons School of Design.
In 1986, with the partner Robert Duffy, he launched the first Marc Jacobs International collection, a debut awarded by the Council of Fashion Designers of America with the Perry Ellis Award. Alongside women's pret à porter fashion, Marc Jacobs combines the production of collections for men and children, maintaining an urban and modern, unconventional and elegant design style.
From 1997 to 2013, Jacobs is artistic director for Louis Vuitton, launching notable collaborations such as Stephen Sprouse's graffiti bags, Takashi Murakami's collection and the first prêt-à-porter with the Louis Vuitton imprimateur. At the same time, the expansion of the Marc Jacobs brand continues, with the debut of a second line in 2000, Marc by Marc Jacobs, less expensive, dedicated to a younger audience and then closed in 2015.
In 2019 Marc Jacobs returns with a second line: at the base of the project there is "an eclectic and individual approach to dressing". Inspired by music, art and pop culture, Jacobs re-elaborates ideas, collaborations and collections from the company's past, updating and evolving them to take them into the future. Marc Jacobs also develops elegant and refined make-up lines, perfumes and accessories that fully reflect the brand's style, ultra-chic and rocker at the same time. While remaining faithful to what makes it unique, Marc Jacobs constantly reinvents the codes of the style, casually alternating grunge and street style influences to highly refined collections. Marc Jacobs has become the symbol of a rebellious, unpredictable, original, unique and authentic style.
