NEW YORK — Marc Jacobs and Louis Vuitton are planning to stick together for the next decade.
The designer and Robert Duffy, who founded Marc Jacobs International together with a simple handshake 20 years ago, signed new employment contracts on Monday that will keep them at LVMH Moët Hennessey Louis Vuitton for 10 more years, concluding 11 months of arduous negotiations that at some points threatened to bring their relationship to an end.
