Louis Vuitton Will Not Spawn a Marc by Marc Equivalent

Duffy and Jacobs.

"No! Louis Vuitton is purely a high-end luxury brand. They do what they do and they do it very well," Marc Jacobs's business partner, Robert Duffy, said when asked if Vuitton would do diffusion. Of the Marc Jacobs staff, which is the subject of the new book The Men and Women of Marc Jacobs, Duffy added, "We're definitely like a family. I'm the dad and Marc is the crazy mother! It's like 'How is she today?', 'How are her mood swings?'!" [Vogue UK]
