LONDONMarc Jacobs will close its last remaining London store, according to a recent report.

Yesterday Friday (January 5), BoF¬† “has learned that Marc Jacobs¬†is set to close its last remaining London store on Mayfair‚Äôs Mount Street. Other European retail outposts are to follow, multiple sources said. The details of which other stores will be closed are not yet known, although the LVMH-owned fashion house currently operates retail stores in Denmark, Italy, Norway and Luxembourg, according to its website. The Paris location on Rue Saint Honor√© will remain open, according to sources familiar with the business.”

A spokesperson for LVMH did not response on this story, at the time of posting.

However, Marc Jacobs will maintain a physical presence in London through its wholesale partnerships with multi-brand retailers including Selfridges and Harvey Nichols.

The brand struggles most commonly dates back to¬†June 2015, when we reported that¬†Marc Jacobs¬†has officially closed his Collection store in¬†Paris‚Äė¬†Palais Royal, after nine years (see it¬†here). In March 2015,¬†Marc Jacobs‚Äė¬†Marc by Marc Jacobs¬†label discontinued, and that collection was folded¬†into the primary¬†Marc Jacobs¬†line (read it¬†here).

In¬†May 2017,¬†DM Fashion Book¬†reported that¬†American¬†fashion designer¬†Marc Jacobs¬†reduced his¬†European¬†staff, according to sources. The luxury house will operate in a ‚Äúfully integrated manner‚ÄĚ out of¬†New York¬†(see it¬†here).

As part of its ongoing restructuring efforts, Marc Jacobs International is said to have laid off the majority of its European staff, based in Paris.

It was also announced back in May 2017 that Marc Jacobs chief executive Sebastian Suhl would be exiting the company.

Stay tuned as this story develops!
