Marc Jacobs

By | Fashion, What's New at Rustan's | No Comments





Fashion’s coolest and most influential designer, Marc Jacobs, is out to captivate

Manila. Avid followers of this seasoned designer will find a lively collection of handbags, small leather goods and shoes in the recently opened Marc Jacobs Collection Accessories store in

Greenbelt 4. With just under twenty freestanding Collection stores worldwide, it is a real privilege that his store has just hit the

Manila fashion scene!


Born in New York and a graduate of Parsons School of Design, Jacobs established his own brand in 1997 under LVMH along with his longtime business partner Robert Duffy. Since then, the Marc Jacobs brand has become an eponymous empire that includes not just Marc Jacobs, but also the Marc by Marc Jacobs label.  As Artistic Director of Louis Vuitton, Jacobs is responsible for many of the French luxury house’s lines including handbags, men’s and women’s ready-to-wear, shoes and small leather goods. With eight full-scale runway productions a year, Jacobs is a very busy man flying in and out of the dynamism of New York and the elegance of

Paris. Such lifestyle is reflected in his own Marc Jacobs Collection line—a peculiar combination of elegance and youth, subtlety and non-conformity. 709959275503_0_bg.jpg 

Marc Jacobs Collection accessories are modern and inspirational with a vintage inspired luxury touch. Each season offers a complete and cohesive collection grounded in strong yet subtle recognizable signatures.
