In a word: Everything.

If I could choose one brand to work with, it would hands down be Marc Jacobs. What I like about the brand is that it takes risks in both a wearable and unconventional way. Marc Jacobs often times will take a classic item like a trench coat, and make it unique with the print, size, and color choice. The brand has a young aesthetic in the Marc by Marc Jacobs line that transitions quite smoothly into an adult version with the Marc Jacobs line. I appreciate brands that have the same story across their varying labels, and Marc Jacobs successfully accomplishes this with the message of embracing individuality. The same customer can grow up wearing MxMJ and mature into the Marc Jacobs line, or can dip back and forth into either collection without compromising his or her personal style. It has the ability to reach out to a wide demographic while still telling a central story of not being afraid to wear fun prints and exaggerated cuts regardless of your age.

My love for the brand has continued to grow over recent seasons after seeing collection after collection debut across the runway during Fashion Week. Who can forget the amazing oversized hats of FW12, the minimalist black and white trend of SS13, or the retro chic pixie cut of FW13? These are just a few of the most recent stand out moments from the brand, and I don’t doubt there will be more to come later in the year.
When the weekly IFB project was published and this was the topic, I knew immediately Marc Jacobs was the brand I would pick. Judging by how successful Marc Jacobs is, I’m sure I’m not the only one who would love to work for the brand.
