Marc Jacobs Launches New Luxury, E-Commerce Experience

Marc Jacobs Launches New Luxury, E-Commerce Experience
Macala Wright

As eCommerce continues to disrupt luxury brands, Marc Jacobs makes another play as a luxury brand to watch with their digital marketing. Today, the brand has launched a new website with a companion mobile site, even further spiffed up with over the top social sharing to your favorite curation sites, PayPal integration and shipping to Canada.

I know what you’re thinking, “Another e-commerce website launch? Who cares? They’re like yet another announcement about some celeb that wore something that we don’t find fabulous!” Well darlings, Marc Jacobs is worth of a write up – in case you haven’t been following their digital progress. The new e-commerce site was designed with all of the critical components for digital success – a near perfect balance UI/UX, social, product distribution and easy path to purchase. The creative, social and design direction were done internally, lead by Daniel Plenge, Director of Digital at Marc Jacobs.
