16 Reasons We're Celebrating Marc Jacobs Today

Marc Jacobs knows how to keep us talking. The designer has mastered the art of putting on a good spectacle, and his shows are some of the most highly-anticipated every year. He's been a champion for models — particularly one of a certain Jenner pedigree — both on the runway and in his campaigns. Jacobs just recently joined Instagram, and has taken to it quite well, racking up a cool 70.5k followers in just a couple weeks.

This year has brought significant changes to the fashion empire he's built, but Marc Jacobs' creations remain as compelling and beautiful as ever. We can't think of a better way to celebrate his 52nd year than by ogling some of his most stunning creations. We'll let the pieces speak for themselves: Ahead, we assembled some of our favorite items from Marc Jacobs' most recent collections — all for sale right this second.
