Marc Jacobs

Marc Jacobs is a very well known fashion figure, sometimes considered over the top and very controversial. He worked for a few fashion houses before starting his own brand. Let’s talk a little more in depth about his personal life and career. Also, I should let you know, Marc Jacobs is one of my favorite designers along with a few more, which I will make sure to write an article about as well.

  He was born on the 9th of April 1963, in New Jersey. He had what you would call a rocky childhood, with his father dying and his mother starting living a life of power dating with a bunch of failed marriages after her husband died. After moving from New Jersey to Long Island and later to the Bronx, he moved in with his grandmother. They grew a really close relationship thanks to her love for aesthetically beautiful things and her encouraging and appreciative comments on his creative work. “No one ever said ‘no’ to me about anything,” he said. “No one ever told me anything was wrong. Never. No one ever said, ‘You can’t be a fashion designer.’ No one ever said, ‘You’re a boy and you can’t take tap-dancing lessons.’ No one ever said, ‘You’re a boy and you can’t have long hair.’ No one ever said, ‘You can’t go out at night because you’re 15 and 15-year-olds don’t go to nightclubs.’ No one said it was wrong to be gay or right to be straight.” 

  Even with all this freedom, at 15, he never strayed away from his studies at the High School of Design and Art. He used to work at an upscale boutique called Charivari after school where he met designer Perry Ellis who became his mentor. He was allowed to design sweaters for the shop by the boutique’s staff after finishing his tasks. This helped him secure a spot at the Parsons School of Design.

  In 1984, he designed the Sketchbook label for the clothing manufacturer Reuben Thomas, Inc. That same year, with help from the company’s executive Robert Duffy, he launched his own line, Jacobs Duffy Designs Inc. Jacobs, which helped him secure enough financial backing to start his own label. He became the youngest designer to win the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) Perry Ellis Award for New Fashion Talent (1987)—one of the industry’s highest honours.

   In 1993 he founded his namesake fashion house and after being signed as creative director for Louis Vuitton, he got the funding he needed to open his first of the many boutiques to come. He later stepped down from Louis Vuitton, in 2013, but his brand is still as strong as ever. He recently launched a new, more accessible line, called Heaven by Marc Jacobs. I highly suggest you check it out.

  Hope you enjoyed, I know I haven’t posted in a while, I have been really busy, but I will make sure to upload as often as possible. Have a great day,

7 designer bags under 1000€

 Hello guys. Today I want to talk about a few designer bags you can buy with less than 1000€. I decided to write this post because I know designer bags can be really expensive and some people don’t want to pay these huge prices. So, let me show you a few bags that are pretty, unique and qualitative. There are links for every bag, just click on the name of it. Let’s go:

   1. Burberry society monogram-print tote. I really like this one, it’s one of the most expensive ones I have on this list, but I think it’s really practical and it looks so beautiful. Plus that it matches with almost everything. It retails for 992€ on farfetch.

   2. Jacquemus Le grand  Bambino handbag. I didn’t even know this one existed until I researched for this post. When I found it I fell in love with it. It’s so pretty and structured. And compared to the other Jacquemus bags, it’s a really decent size. It retails for 601€ on farfetch.

  3. Givenchy rainbow logo print clutch. This one is really cool and you can wear it as a clutch, or use it as a catch all in your tote and you can also just use it as a bag for your documents and stuff. And it’s really beautiful. It retails for 490€ on farfetch.

  4. Marc Jacobs snapshot crossbody bag. I really wanted to buy this one but I decided on another Marc Jacobs bag. It’s so pretty and there are some designs for the snapshot designs that are absolutely beautiful. It retails for 334€ on farfetch.

  5. YSL monogram pouch. This is another of my personal favorites. It’s also really versatile, you can wear it while you run errands or when you go to parties or even at black-tie events. And it’s also really high-quality. It retails for 595€ on farfetch. 

  6. JW Anderson chain link tote bag. I have been seeing this on instagram lately. Well, not this one exactly, but there are some shoes from JW Anderson I really liked. Now, let’s talk about the bag. It’s really pretty and I love the chain detailing. And I also like the fact that it has top handles and a shoulder strap. It retails for 712€ on farfetch.

  7. Jimmy Choo varenne crocodile effect clutch. This bag looks so elegant and the crocodile skin looks sophisticated even though I feel like you could still wear this as an everyday bag.It retails for 795€.

  Hope you enjoyed and I hope this is somewhat useful. Let me know if you have any other suggestions. Have a great day,
