New York born fashion designer Marc Jacobs treads the fine line of 'rock star' and fashion designer. With his ecclectic taste and creative vision, this Marc by Marc Jacobs diffusion line boasts vibrant colourful frames, lashings of youthful attitude and out-of-the-ordinary designs unlike any others around. Fun and theatrical, the Marc by Marc Jacobs range is ideal for those who wish to make a real style statement, whatever the weather.
Born in New York, Marc Jacobs developed a love of design at a young age and developed his skills at the Parson’s school of design, enrolling in 1981. While there he sold his first collection for Rueben Thomas and, within a few years he sold his first collection under his own name, founding the Marc Jacobs brand, as we know it today.
It wasn't until 1994 that he launched the Marc Jacobs fashion label, which soon drew widespread critical acclaim, so much so that by 1997 he was asked to become the creative director at Louis Vuitton. Since then, Marc Jacobs has established himself at the pinnacle of fashion design, offering retro designs infused with a twist of contemporary glamour. It is no wonder his designs are among the most emulated on the high street.
Marc Jacobs has constantly expanded the product offerings from his fashion house, his most recent development being a collection of Marc by Marc Jacobs Sunglasses. Like many products in the Marc Jacobs brand, the collection of Marc by Marc Jacobs sunglasses offer a unique mix of contemporary and classical, embracing diverse shapes, sizes and shades.
