Rumors: Marc Jacobs & Coach Chatter Swirling
Coach Inc. is on the hunt for the brand’s next creative director, and the company is rumored to be looking at none other than Marc Jacobs. This all depends if the celebrated designer’s contract at Louis Vuitton will be renewed when it expires at the end of the year. Another possibility for Jacobs is to focus on his own brand and go for an initial public offering.
According to sources, other candidates on Coach’s list include Derek Lam, Phillip Lim, former Balenciaga designer Nicolas Ghesquière, Chloé’s creative director Clare Waight Keller, and Emma Hill, former creative director at Mulberry.
