Under dynamic duo Katie Hillier and Luella Bartley, Marc by Marc Jacobs has gotten a shot of streetwise energy — but positive press notwithstanding, the label is rumored to be near its end. Women’s Wear Daily reports that the secondary line is to be folded into the company’s higher-priced main collection, which will now “encompass a range of merchandise and price points” and “unify all products with a clarity of voice and aesthetic,” per the report. No mention was made of Hillier and Bartley’s involvement, but we’ve reached out to the company for a statement and will update this when we hear back.
