New York-based designer Marc Jacobs launched his first collection under his self-titled brand in 1986. Winning a series of accolades since including Lifetime Achievement Award in 2011, Jacobs has lent his creative flair to design house Louis Vuitton from 1997 - 2013. His diffusion line, Marc by Marc Jacobs was launched in 2001 as a youthful and relaxed younger sister to the main line. Adding a playful and quirky edge to the brand's signature aesthetic, the menswear range focuses on youthful trends and colourful basics, with quirky prints and slogans. Designed by Karl Aberg and Spencer Phipps, Marc by Marc Jacobs bags range from sports-inspired backpacks to leather briefcases for the office and weekend holdalls in bold colours and prints, finished with the brand's iconic logo.
