Marc Jacobs fans rejoice – a new, inexpensive label is in the works.
Only three years after discontinuing the Marc by Marc Jacobs line, the designer is set to launch a new, lower-price label with its pre-fall 2019 collection. When the decision to end the secondary line came in 2015, it sent both shoppers and fashion gurus into a panic. Not only were the clothes stylish and affordable, but the closure also signalled the end of the label's collaboration with the line's creative director, Katie Hillier, and Marc Jacobs' womenswear designer, Luella Bartley.
Now, WWD has revealed Marc Jacobs' new affordable line as well as the first image from the look book. The new line is set to bring back the 90s in a big way and we're so here for it. The poster-sized prints were shot by Hugo Scott and styled by Lotta Volkova. They feature wide-leg corduroy pants, oversized sweaters and even bigger accessories. With more visuals to come in April, the label looks like it's all about serious comfort.
The new line will be called "The Marc Jacobs", sharing its name with the designer's Instagram handle. According to WWD, the collection will be divided into two parts: Runway, which will comprise the usual designer pieces, along with a more "democratically priced" component, which is great news for our bank accounts.
