Despite relinquishing his role as Creative Director at Louis Vuitton to focus on the future of his eponymous label, it is no doubt that Marc Jacobs will remain an important name for some time to go. One statement that will likely ring true for the duration of Jacobs’ career concerns his tenacity for growth; a natural tendency to pick up on trends and movements within the industry has contributed to the traction Jacobs’ has gained. In 2013, Marc Jacobs along with business counterpart Robert Duffy signed a lucrative contract with LVMH, securing the next few years of the Marc Jacobs company and effectively enabling him to focus his efforts and follow his own vision.
