If you haven't heard by now then I'm sorry to have to break the news: marc by marc Jacobs is soon to be discontinued... That's right, discontinued - finité, gone, done! I literally am feeling the same disbelief as when my favourite make up brand took away my perfect foundation colour.
Jacobs and Robert Duffy founded the marc by marc jacobs label way back in 2001 and in doing so they provided their ever growing fan base with a more affordable range. As such, us 20 something year olds could now (somewhat) afford a piece of this classic designer to drape around our wrists.
If you're anything like me you'l have accrued a small collection, so hold onto your items as they'll be collectables now. Alternately it would be wise to grab some bits and pieces now, while you still can. If you're a MMJ newbie, I've listened the top items you must purchase before this beauty of a brand disappear forever - click the image to discover where you can buy theses awesome pieces.
I won't deny I am upset, as marc by marc jacobs was the closet thing I could ever have wearing a well known luxury brand with my price point, especially the quality in their leather pieces - they were well worth every penny. Although the days of marc by marc jacobs may soon be lost (but never forgotten) Marc Jacobs' CEO Sebastian Suhl hopes merging the lines will help them to fill the gap in the price points of the luxury and contemporary market caused by cutting the brand. I guess only time will tell if our generation will be walking about with marc by our sides...
