Marc by Marc Jacobs : the electric collection from the designer
Born in New York in 1963, Marc Jacobs was immersed in the world of fashion when he was a teenager, a period during which he lived with his grandmother who taught him to sew. In 1981, he studied art at the prestigious Parsons School of Design before creating his first collection: a line of knitwear. The Perry Ellis brand opened its doors to Jacobs in 1989 and made him Vice President of women's pret-a-porter. The collaboration ended when the designer created his grunge collection, a style that created its own identity but which no longer met the expectations of the more traditional Perry Ellis brand. That's when Jacobs founded his now-famous brand: Marc Jacobs has become a synonym with prestigious international customers. In 1997, he joined Louis Vuitton as Creative Director for their pret-a-porter department. Today, it is a symbol of fashion chic that has become very popular. Launched in 2001, Marc by Marc Jacobs advocates a style that is classy, casual and fun. Creations with daring colours and patterns make for a modern look that asserts it's difference and good taste.
