The Marc by Marc Jacobs label will be discontinued and the collection absorbed into the main Marc Jacobs line, according to reports.
Sources have told WWD the single Marc Jacobs brand will offer the range of merchandise and price points currently divided between the two lines. The aim is ultimately to expand the product offering and the change is expected to take effect after autumn 15.
It is not known how this will affect staff. Marc by Marc Jacobs is designed by creative director Katie Hillier and women’s design director Luella Bartley, both appointed in May 2013.
