In 2024, codes are meant to be blurred-gender codes, dress codes, you name it. Instead of rigid rules to conform to, they are now a starting point for challenging conventions.

To Marc Jacobs, why should men have all the tailoring fun? In his latest collection, instead of making women look like men, Jacobs played with structure, proportion and detailing typically seen on men’s suits into feminine silhouettes.

The myth that style and comfort can be balanced becomes reality in the season’s pointed flats, emphasizing practicality without compromising on sophistication. And while the comeback of tights harks to the girlish coquette trend, Jacobs’ sheer black tights feel refined yet punk rock all at once.

Ball gowns are re-engineered from the typical, transformed into asymmetrical hemlines and unexpected details. Silhouettes reserved for black tie can now be enjoyed at a rock gig. On the flip side, you don’t have to wait for ball season to wear your most elaborate bustiers. Who knew elegance could be this edgy?

Leave it to Jacobs to push the envelope, once again reiterating the transformative power of fashion and celebrating individuality and timeless style.

Bags and shoes that deliver both functionality and style.


In the Philippines, Marc Jacobs is exclusively distributed by Stores Specialists, Inc., and is located at Greenbelt 5, Rustan’s Makati, and online at and Visit, subscribe to our SSI LIFE YouTube Channel, and follow @ssilifeph on Instagram and Facebook for more information.
