AS ONE OF the hottest names to reckon with on the global fashion map, Marc Jacobs turns 51 today, Style Mynt wishes him a fabulous birthday and looks back at some of his inspirations and most iconic designs.
Jacobs went on from being a geek to being one of the biggest designers in the industry, heading design houses and running his eponymous label. Apart from creating designs that would be etched in our memories if not our closets forever, the designer has undergone quite a transformation himself.
The designer is known for being a chameleon when it comes to style. From obsessing over a theme or particular trend one season to completely abandoning it the next, he has been a grand influence in the fashion world. Known for his bags, he will always be known for revolutionising Louis Vuitton bags. Jacobs has moved on from the design house and now makes accessories, kids wear, menswear, footwear and bags and owns two labels, Marc Jacobs and Marc by Marc Jacobs.
If you are looking for casual wear that is dripping chic yet not overdone in anyway, Jacobs is your man. From layers to stripes and volume to grunge there isn’t a stone left unturned. Reinventing classics is his specialty. He has collections that are extravagant and are meant just for the runways and others that are perfect for your closet. From collections that are sublime and soft to over-the-top bold, this designer surely knows how to appeal to a wide range of tastes.
We have rounded up some styles that are reminiscent of Marc Jacobs’ designs and should definitely be a part of your wardrobe.
