Established in 1986, Marc Jacobs’s namesake label would earn the designer major accolades just one year later, when he received the CFDA’s Perry Ellis Award for New Talent. Since then, Jacobs and business partner Robert Duffy have built a veritable global fashion empire encompassing men’s and women’s wear, accessories, leather goods, beauty, fragrance and shoes. Like Jacobs’s ready-to-wear lines, his footwear collections reflect the designer’s ultra-stylish, trendsetting aesthetic. Finely crafted and sharply detailed, Marc Jacobs’s shoes often reference the past while still being decidedly of-the-moment.
