Two new Marcs
Within the next month or so, two new Marc Jacobs stores are opening in the West Village. One on the corner of West 4th and Bank, shoppers will be blessed with a Marc Jacobs collection boutique, while cattycorner from that, wealthy parents will be able to browse for their precious, precious spawn at a Little Marc Jacobs shop. Of course, we've covered both developments, but today, buried at the end of a WWD piece, we got a bit more information on the kid's store. WWD:
Marc Jacobs fans aged toddler to 12 will soon have their own shopping paradise to play in. Word is Jacobs is about to open a store for his budding children's wear label Little Marc in the Manhattan's West Village. Few details could be learned, but sources said it will bear the name Little Marc Jacobs, and is expected to open before the end of this month just off Bleecker Street. The Little Marc label launched softly with waffle-weave thermal separates for toddlers in 2004, but expanded into a full collection last spring in license with Zannier Group. The cool clothes and accessories, which are for infants to 12-year-olds, are in the vein of big Marc by Marc Jacobs.That brings the neighborhood tally to six boutiques (if you count 403 and 405 Bleecker as separate shops).
