In light of the recent flood of magical Marc Jacobs arrivals at both of our stores, it seemed fitting to dedicate a blog post in his honor. Read on to take a peek at some of our favorite gems from the ever-alternative-quirky-edgy Mr. Jacobs. From his playful prints, vibrant colors and luscious accessories, it’s clear that we just can’t get enough (and neither can our shoppers). Several of the items featured below are listed currently at our online store—but it’s hard to say if they’ll get scooped up by the time this feast reaches your eyes!
Oh, Marc. Why do we love thee so? For one, you are perfectly unpredictable—yet we seem to spot you on a resale rack from a mile away. Marc is known for his tongue-in-cheek prints; just take a look at the “Scream Queen” 3d images printed all over his latest collection for proof. He’s forever known to experiment with unexpected color combinations, too. His subsequent runway collections and perfume bottle design for Lola combined intense reds and deep purples, an unlikely color combination that he turned from antique Red Hat Society to the modern look du jour. His supple leather handbags and accessories fly off our shelves so fast, it could give a gal whiplash.
The main allure of Marc Jacob’s accessories in resale can be summed up in one word: exciting. You’re hard pressed to find a single boring thing ever made from Marc Jacobs; even his crispest white shirts are sure to have a playful Peter Pan collar or an unexpected pocket. What’s more, his season-to-season styles don’t disappoint. They constantly keep us guessing, and are often so ahead of the game that they’re still fashion-forward even two or three seasons later.
For a scavenger hunt, see what gems featured in this post are available in our online store, too (hint: just type in ‘Marc Jacobs’ in our website search bar for an easy shortcut). For old and new fans alike, hop onto our Marc Jacobs Wish List to be contacted for our latest arrivals. Bonus: our Instagram photos are often the first to announce new designer arrivals, too. See you on the flipside, fellow fashionistas.
