Marc Jacobs has officially announced that his brand will be returning to the runway for Fall/Winter 2021. It last showed a runway collection almost a year and a half ago. For the past two seasons, the designer has opted out of presenting his latest luxury ready-to-wear pieces at New York Fashion Week and had chosen instead to focus more on his affordable ranges like The Marc Jacobs and Heaven.
Recently, the American fashion icon took to Instagram to announce the brand has finally set a date for its runway return. He shared a post stating, “Runway, Marc Jacobs, Fall 2021, 6.28.21” alongside the caption, “happiness.”
In the past, Jacobs usually closes NYFW, but had recently added himself to a long list of other brands and designers who have chosen to not follow the traditional fashion calendar during COVID. In regards to skipping the past few seasons, the designer previously cited production chain issues as well as overarching fashion fatigue. Paper Magazine reported that his 2020 collection had supposedly never made it to production due to the factory closures in Europe. Jacobs said at the time, “If you can’t order the fabric from Italy, which the fabrics are all from, you can’t receive the fabric and if we can’t receive the fabric, we can’t make the collection. So, therefore, we weren’t able to produce that incredible show that we did.”
It is unsure what Jacobs has in store for this year’s FW21 runway collection. Marc Jacobs returns to the runway on June 28 in NYC.
