Marc Jacobs has a new accessories in-store shop in Galeries Lafayette Berlin, located in the city’s eastern neighborhood of Mitte. The dedicated space featuring Marc Jacobs and Marc by Marc Jacobs handbags and more is nestled in the store’s newly updated ground floor luxury area, with neighbors including Chloé and Gucci.
While Marc Jacobs has a strong presence in Germany, “Berlin’s kind of its own market, especially for luxury, so maybe a bit more challenging, to be honest,” explained the brand’s senior account executive Caroline Morrison, who was on hand for the Oct. 17 launch. “But I think it’s great to have this visibility and this window in Galeries Lafayette, which is a historical partner for us, so it’s very positive.”
Morrison said the brand’s ready-to-wear remains down the street in Departmentstore Quartier 206, but Marc Jacobs accessories will now be found exclusively at Galeries Lafayetteand at Kaufhaus des Westensacross town in the city’s western region, home to a more localized luxury consumer. KaDeWe also sells the rtw.
Morrison pointed to a couple of models she thinks will hit the spot both with stylish Berliners and the international tourists who flood the Mitte shopping stretch.
“The bag I can really see here is the Metropolitan, which is a very sophisticated bag, very chic. But it’s quite easy to wear, and basic,” she said. “And then for a bit more fun, we do some patchwork pythons that kind of have a really vintage feel, that are really rich.”

For @massimogiorgetti of @msgm, the Nineties are his favorite decade. “They had a huge impact on my personal growth. What I like of the Nineties is that they are not so precise in terms of style as other decades…there was actually a bit of everything,” he said. As seen on MSGM’s Spring 2018 show: tie-dye and a bit of grunge, two styles that are synonymous with the decade #wwdfashion #wwddecades (📷: @kukukuba)
Breaking News: @hedislimane joins @celine as its new artistic, creative and image director. One of fashion’s preeminent image-makers and trendsetters, Slimane is to join the LVMH brand on Feb. 1 and unveil his first fashion proposition for men and women next September during Paris Fashion Week. It marks a major homecoming for Slimane, who cemented his reputation – and influenced men’s tailoring for more than a decade – as the designer of Dior Homme between 2000 and 2007. He went on to reinvent and ignite the house of Yves Saint Laurent, which he rechristened Saint Laurent, between 2012 and 2016 – all the while maintaining a close relationship with the Arnault family, which controls LVMH and Dior.

“Personally I believe the Eighties have been the richest and more vivacious period for international fashion,” Giorgio Armani said when asked what his favorite decade of fashion is. It was a moment of disruption and experimentation and only thinking back to the first years of that decade is always an emotion for me, for what they have meant to me and my work.” The influence is clear in @giorgioarmani spring 2018 collection, pictured here, which was full of bright colors and unexpected prints.
