Founded in New York in 1984 and majority-owned by LVMH since 1997, the eponymous brand developed by Marc Jacobs – Artistic Director of Louis Vuitton – has enjoyed rapid growth in both the United States and internationally.
In 1984 Marc Jacobs and Robert Duffy founded Marc Jacobs International based on two very simple concepts: a love for fashion and a commitment to quality.
After years of producing the Marc Jacobs women’s collection exclusively, the company has expanded in several directions with two lines of ready-to-wear for men and women -Marc Jacobs and Marc by Marc Jacobs- as well as bags, accessories, shoes and the Marc Jacobs fragrances.
It is a source of great pride that despite extensive growth, the same concepts are the cornerstones of the company today.
