Marc Jacobs Menswear for 5 More Years (which is 5 more Christmases!)

By Will Reid on November 11th, 2008

00030m.jpgDNR reports today that Marc Jacobs International has signed a contract with Staff International (a part of Diesel founder Renzo Rosso’s fashion empire) that will see Marc by Marc Jacobs Menswear expand over the next five years. Already in Rosso’s couture stable are Dsquared2, Viktor & Rolf, Maison Martin Margiela and Vivienne Westwood.

The contract means that Staff International will have exclusive rights to the production and distribution of the Marc Jacobs menswear line but, with Rosso’s history of major successes, I think this can only be a good move for both parties.

Outfit Pick: Gauche, Awkward and Isaac…

By Will Reid on September 16th, 2008

outfitpick2.jpgWith a new of series of Heroes about to begin, the unfortunate death of Yves Saint Laurent and the number of Clark Kent-y characters about in the most recent blockbusters, my style radar is tuned to the male who’s gauche, awkward and geeky in the best way possible. Think of 1970s art students carrying open sketchbooks around Paris, Isaac Mendez of Heroes lounging around his studio in over-sized chinos and Marc Jacobs around his grunge era (which means big glasses, baggy jumpers and lots of corduroy.) I took a risk with mixing the denim shirt with dark jeans but the two items together are a wearable look that anyone can pull off.

Check out the product details after the jump and see how geeky you can get this winter- Argyle jumper anyone?

Stand alone Marc by Marc store to open in London next year

By admin on April 17th, 2008

mbm.jpgRejoice! Everyone’s favourite diffusion line is about to set up fully-owned shop in Europe this year, reaching the UK in early 2009.

Boosted by a 30% year-on-year rise in US revenue, M.b.M. is looking across the Atlantic to Paris and a spot on Place Marché Saint Honoré (conveniently near Collette). Both a women’s and men’s shop will be opening up in the same area, spanning a total of 2,100 sq. ft.

The London store will debut in early 2009, across the road from the existing Marc Jacobs boutique in Mayfair, at 56 South Audley Street.

“Europe is such a different market, but Marc by Marc Jacobs’ sales per square meter is higher than any other retail store in the word, so we’re confident,” says Marc Jacobs president Robert Duffy.
