Marc Jacobs bag is a must have for any collector. This American designer was born in 1963 in New York in family of theatrical agents. He studied at the Parsons School of Design. His talent was obvious and during the studies he already received several awards, such as the Perry Ellis Gold Thimble Award for his hand knit sweaters’ line, the Chester Weinberg Gold Thimble Award, as well as he Design Student of the Year Award. His first line under his own name was presented in 1986. Next year Jacobs received the Perry Ellis Award for New Fashion Talent and he was the youngest designer ever to receive this prestigious prize.
The price is a high one, but Marc Jacobs bags are worth it if you want contemporary accessories that will serve well not only in terms of style, but also durability. Marc Jacobs Stam is given the name after super model Jessica Stam. It has been one of the hits in Hollywood celebrities’s handbag collections and the bag is worth about 1,300 USD.
Those bags won’t recapture the market on their own, but Jacobs has one very important factor on his side: he is, and always has been, really cool. His show is the most important event of New York Fashion Week, he brings out the most interesting and of-the-moment celebrities and people seem really to want him to retain his spot atop the American fashion industry. If he can come up with a steady stream of good bags that are correctly priced (and I believe he, if anyone, can do that), then I’ll gladly sign up to be a customer.
