Designer Marc Jacobs is leaving Louis Vuitton to concentrate on his own brand’s IPO.
The French luxury company announced on Wednesday that Jacobs is exiting as creative director. Jacobs, 50, ran the brand for 16 years and helped Louis Vuitton become one of the most lucrative fashion businesses in the world.
The fashion world was rocked today by the theft of Marc Jacobs' entire Spring/Summer 2012 collection, after the goods were stolen from a train heading from Paris to London for the brand's European press day.
The company confirmed the heist after an email from the PR team circulated on Wednesday morning -- canceling the scheduled press day on Thursday "due to the theft of the spring/summer 2012 collections during its transfer from Paris."
