Marc by Marc Jacobs opened at 2142 Fillmore Street last week. This is the fifth freestanding store for the lower priced Marc Jacobs line, which is for both men and women (the original designer line has been located at Maiden Lane for a few years.) Prices range from about $250 for a jacket, $300 for dresses, $250 for shoes.
Robert Duffy, Jacobs longtime business partner, was at last week’s opening, but the designer stayed in Paris (he doesn’t travel well, according to Duffy.) “Judging from yesterday and today, San Francisco loves us,” Duffy told the SF Chronicle.
