Longtime friends Marc Jacobs and Anna Sui are launching a limited-edition collection together. The pair, who met each other at the Parsons School of Design in New York in the 1980’s, has teamed up with British illustrator Will Broome to develop a capsule collection offering bags, shoes, bag charms, T-shirts and sweatshirts.The pieces feature Broone’s colorful drawings of Sui and Jacobs, named “Miss and Mister Marc”, as well as of Jacob’s dog, Neville.
Following its pre-launch in selected Isetan department stores in Japan earlier this month, the capsule collection launches internationally today via Marc Jacob’s e-commerce and selected Anna sui stores around the world. Bag charms are priced at 65 dollars, T-shirts range from 95 to 250 dollars and sneakers cost 225 dollars.
This is the latest collaboration in a series of interesting partnerships from Jacobs. Last year, he worked with Vans to develop a limited-edition slip-on collection, and in 2016 he teamed up with MTV for a sweatshirt line featuring the network’s logo. As for Sui, she’s recently collaborated with Bed|Stu for a collection of handbags and footwear.
