Marc Jacobs is an award-winning designer whose popularity and renown is virtually unmatched. At the head of his namesake empire, as well as the offshoot, Marc by Marc Jacobs, he has the distinct honor of being the youngest designer to be awarded the fashion industry’s highest tribute: The Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) Perry Ellis Award for New Fashion Talent.
In 1997, the French conglomerate LVMH tapped the native New Yorker to be creative director of the 143-year-old house of Louis Vuitton. The coquettish glamour in his designs for Louis Vuitton is the perfect yin to the yang of the quirky-feminine look of his own label. Ultimately, Jacobs’s daring bid to elevate a counterculture movement to the runway would fix his reputation as a designer with an on-pulse prescience for trends.
The Marc Jacobs eyewear collection is ultimately a perfect expression of the designer’s aptitude for knowing what’s hot. Characterized by sophisticated and slightly retro shapes, these eyeglasses are distinguished by an exclusive and glamorous style. These new motifs, whether they are interpreted in profiles highlighting the frames or in clean, simple lines, always feature interplays of contrasting hues and bold color combinations, lending these models an inherently modern twist. A large, flat silhouette and rectangular shape with skilfully rounded edges highlights the interplay of trendy vintage chic and nuanced embellishments that only Marc Jacobs eyewear could successfully deploy.
