Fashion designer Marc Jacobs reinterprets the protective facemasks in the autumn 2021 collection

After a brief absence from the events of New York Fashion Week, fashion designer Marc Jacobs returned, presenting his autumn collection, which included a reinterpretation of the classic protective facemask, now introduced as a clothing accessory.

Many of the outfits presented in the RUNWAY MARC JACOBS Fall/Winter 2021 collection have generous collars that can be transformed into protective masks, as several clothing critics have noted.

Fashion designer Marc Jacobs was born in 1963 in New York to an American Jewish family and grew up with his grandmother on the Upper West Side in an apartment overlooking Central Park. He graduated from the Parsons School of Design in New York in 1984, winning three awards, including Student of the Year. He began working for Chiavari, an avant-garde fashion boutique in New York, at the age of 15, and while a student at Parsons, he created and sold the first collection of hand knitwear, using what he learned from his grandmother. He also designed and imagined the first collection for Reuben Thomas Inc., under the Sketchbook label, and created Jacobs Duffy Designs Inc.

In 1986, supported by Onward Kashiyama USA Inc., Jacobs created the first collection under the Marc Jacobs label, and in 1987, he became the youngest designer to win the Perry Ellis Award for "New Fashion Talent" from the Council of Fashion Designers of America. After graduating in 1989, she began designing for the Perry Ellis brand, where she created a grunge collection for him, earning her a new CFDA award for Women's Designer of the Year.

In 1993, Marc Jacobs launched his own company, Marc Jacobs International Company, and in 1994, he launched the first men's collection. In 1997, he was named Creative Director of the Louis Vuitton fashion house, which he left in 2014 to focus on his brand, Marc Jacobs. In 2011, he was honoured with a Lifetime Achievement Award.

A prominent figure on the stage of New York celebrities and himself a celebrity, Marc Jacobs currently spends most of his time in Paris, where he owns a collection of contemporary art and a bull terrier, which he also tattooed on his arm. He is one of the few designers whose vision of fashion has managed to set trends and predict exactly what women want, season after season.
