As a designer Marc Jacobs is renowned for his ultra chic yet daring and sometimes surprising approach to fashion. Particularly in America, Marc Jacobs is one of the most highly regarded, sought after and popular designers and this status has certainly transcended to a global level with the designer being iconic and favoured all over the world.
The style of Marc Jacobs fashion is very much of the tone that you can’t miss it – his creations are designed to be noticed, and this is definitely reflected at the twice yearly Fashion Weeks whereby Jacobs often stuns and dazzles the rows of fashion mavens with his eclectic but ultra sophisticated pieces and unpredictable creations. The mystique of Marc is also heightened with the use of unconventional choices of models used in his advertising campaigns including Charlotte Rampling, Dakota Fanning and Victoria Beckham.
The collection of Marc Jacobs sunglasses are a reflection of his general approach to fashion but are incredibly wearable and convey the wearer’s superior and refined taste of style. With a high-end finish, the designs range from the classically oversized MMJ127 to the dramatically oversized and new for this season MMJ153 sunglasses with their ultra slim frames and arms and vibrant and on-trend colour combinations. There are also a range of retro inspired oversized styles including the MMJ160 sunglasses and the MMJ132 aviator design.
Colour and pattern is a huge theme behind the designer’s work which is also represented in the Marc Jacobs sunglasses collection. Some sunglasses are bolder than others – a great example of this is the MMJ155 style which is reminiscent of the iconic Wayfarer with a black and white cloud patterned frame and arms. This is a fun and youthful style and reflects Jacob’s playful attitude towards fashion. Other frames also include colour and pattern but have a super chic finish which is perfect for adding a high fashion edge but vibrant element to your look.
Fashion is exciting and it should be a fun way of adding the spirit of your own personality into your look. Marc Jacobs perfectly achieves this with his range of sunglasses which capture the balance of being exciting and light-hearted whilst remaining wonderfully sophisticated, super trendy and stylish. Combining patterns, prints and colours is a key trend of 2010 and a pair of Marc Jacobs sunglasses will not only allow you to work the trend into your look, but the individuality of each design will see you through numerous seasons to come in flawless and striking style.

The famous designer Marc Jacobs was born in 1963 in New York and maintained a passion for fashion and design from a young age. He attended the prestigious High School of Art and Design and later the Parsons School of Design. Landing a role in the industry quickly, Jacobs’ first job was for the Weiser family chain of stores, Charivari and he was appointed to design and manufacture hand knitted jumpers for the store.
Marc Jacobs had proved himself to be a talented designer whilst at Parsons and upon leaving was contacted by Robert Duffy to design for the Ruben Thomas Inc Sketchbook label. The pair worked closely together, proving to be a dynamic team and together, they soon joined the label Perry Ellis whereby they were in charge of designing the women’s collections for the brand.
Marc Jacobs soon became a prominent figure on the fashion scene, especially following his rather rebellious ‘grunge’ collection for Perry Ellis which led to him being forced to leave the company in 1993. With Robert Duffy, Jacobs formed Jacobs Duffy Designs Inc. which still exists today. In 1986 Jacobs designed his first collection bearing the Marc Jacobs label. In 1994 he won The Women’s Designer of the Year Award and also produced his first full collection of menswear. By 1997, the Jacobs name had become renowned in the industry and the designer was working on a number ofhigh profile projects including working with Louis Vuitton whereby he started designing and making handbags. It was in this very same year that the initial Marc Jacobs store opened in New York.
Marc Jacobs is a designer who is also very much the face of his brand and is known for his vibrant personality and has even become quite the fixture within the New York City celebrity scene often seen out and about with the likes of Victoria Beckham who has also appeared in one of the most iconic Marc Jacobs advertising campaigns. The style of the Marc Jacobs collections take influence from fashion that existed from the 1940’s – 1980’s and he likes to inject his own unique twists on his designs to make them unique and original and despite people often suggesting that his style is sexy and flirty, the designer claims that “what I prefer is that even if someone feels hedonistic, they don’t look it. Curiosity about sex is much more interesting to me than domination. … My clothes are not hot. Never. Never.”
Recently this year, Jacobs hosted the ‘Model and Muse’ themed Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala in New York which featured supermodel Kate Moss. Marc Jacobs is a firm favourite in the industry and he just knows what people desire from a style perspective. He therefore creates highly fashionable products that always tend to be the ‘it’ accessory of the season. His bags especially, including the ‘Sasha’ shoulder bag and the Hobo are always seen adorned upon the arms of celebs including Lauren Conrad. The collection of Marc Jacobs sunglasses are certainly no exception and with their highly on trend bright colours, dramatic frames and exquisite designer style, these are definitely set to be a hot favourite on the fashion scene in 2010.
