Welcome to the Bar by Marc Jacobs

Good news for Italian fashwan enthusiasts . . . Marc Jacobs has opened a Marc by Marc Jacobs shop in Milan AND it’s got a café/bar as well - bellissimo! Take a gander at these pictures – shiny concrete floors, fabulous electric blue colour scheme and sexy neon signs.  Lurve.

 The story behind the café goes like this – Marc and business partner Robert Duffy had entertained the thought of a lovely café as part of their empire in the past, so when they were looking for a suitable property for their Milan store and came across a building which had previously lodged several stores and a bakery with a coffee bar, Duffy negotiated to include the whole thing.

 

It’s a big store - 3,132-square-feet of fashion delights set in the trendy district of Brera, all designed by Marc’s favourite architect Stephan Jaklitsch. A special mention is made of the big blue table. Not a picnic table (no no!) but in MJ parlance – a ‘skate table’ Well, we think it looks fabulous, and will be making an appointment to view next time we are in Milan.

But what would you order at the Marc by Marc Jacobs café? A skinny Americano perhaps?
