Fans of Marc Jacobs will soon be able to shop for the renowned fashion designer’s eponymous label in Singapore, after fashion and lifestyle group FJ Benjamin said on Thursday (Aug 25) it has secured exclusive rights to distribute the brand.
Apart from Singapore, FJ Benjamin also plans to open stores in Malaysia and Indonesia after signing an agreement with Marc Jacobs International. In a filing to the stock exchange, the SGX-listed retailer said it will open four stores over the next two years, and stores will carry the full range of Marc Jacobs’ women’s ready-to-wear, shoes, jewellery, bags and accessories.
Marc Jacobs, widely considered to be one of the most influential American designers of his generation, is best known for reinventing classic and retro looks into bold and innovative designs, while incorporating street style into high-end fashion. The famed designer also ventured into cosmetics, with the debut of his make-up line Marc Jacobs Beauty in Aug 2013.
“We are delighted to represent Marc Jacobs, one of the most exciting and sought after fashion brands in the world,” said FJ Benjamin Holdings’ group chief operating officer Douglas Benjamin. “We welcome the brand into our portfolio and look forward to its success in the markets we serve.”
