After a period of rumors, the Marc by Marc Jacobs store finally opened in the Utrechtsestraat 120 in Amsterdam. In addition to continuous changing collections for men and women, the store offers a large selection of shoes, eyewear, watches and other accessories. Aditionally there are special & limited edition items, exclusively available at Marc by Marc Jacobs brand stores.
The interior is designed by Jacobs' house architect, Jaklitsch Gardner Architects from New York. In the store, with a floor area of more than 150m², wood and concrete are interspersed with stainless steel and glass. The most striking feature in the Marc by Marc Jacobs store is the use of various blues, combined with crisp white furniture. This guarantees a true Marc by Marc Jacobs look and feel.
