Marc Jacobs Glasses
A Little Preppie, A Little Grungy, A Little Couture
Marc Jacobs is the head of a namesake empire, as well as the offshoot, Marc by Marc Jacobs. In 1997, the French conglomerate LVMH tapped the native New Yorker to be creative director of the 143-year-old house of Louis Vuitton. The quirky-feminine look of his own label, as much as the coquettish glamour of his work for Louis Vuitton are characteristic of Marc Jacobs’ work. Ultimately, Jacobs’s daring bid to elevate a counterculture movement to the runway would fix his reputation as a designer with an on-pulse prescience for trends. His streetwise aesthetic – which is in his words, “a little preppie, a little grungy, a little couture” – has evolved along with his prodigious talent for knowing what women want to wear.
The Marc Jacobs eyewear collection, characterized by sophisticated and slightly retro shapes, is distinguished by its exclusive and glamorous style. These new eyeglasses motifs, whether they are interpreted in profiles highlighting the frames or in clean, simple lines, always feature interplays of contrasting hues and bold colour combinations, lending these models an inherently modern twist. A large, flat silhouette and rectangular shape with skilfully rounded edges highlights the interplay of trendy vintage chic and nuanced embellishments that only Marc Jacobs eyewear could successfully deploy.
