Marc Jacobs to Launch E-Commerce for FallJul 12, 2010 @ 4:19 pm
Marcjacobs.com has about as many bells and whistles as one would expect from a leading fashion designer’s site—including livestream videos, gorgeous photos, news, and gossip—but it’s been missing one obvious thing: A shopping cart! Like many high-end retailers, Marc Jacobs has been slow to the e-commerce trend, but he has finally announced plans to sell clothes on his site, starting in September. Robert Duffy, the President and Vice Chairman of Marc Jacobs, even hinted that there will be exclusive duds on the relaunched site. “I want to give people a reason to go there,” he told The New York Times.
