Marc Jacobs is opening a store at Hudson Yards on Manhattan’s far west side later this year, sources told WWD.

The designer’s shop will be situated inside the Hudson Yards mall, known as The Shops & Restaurants at Hudson Yards, on level one between Fendi and Louis Vuitton, according to one source. Both brands are owned by LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton, as is Jacobs.

For Jacobs, it’s a return to Hudson Yards since his collection was carried at Neiman Marcus, which closed its store in the mall in 2020, amid the pandemic, only a year and a half after it opened on the site in March 2019 as the anchor retailer of the shopping center. Neiman’s occupied the three upper floors of the mall.

Sources told WWD that the upcoming Marc Jacobs store will be 2,000 square feet and a full-line store with fashion, clothing and accessories.

A representative for Marc Jacobs confirmed the opening, saying, “We are planning to open in June of this year. No details to share just yet.” Representatives for Hudson Yards could not be reached Friday afternoon.

The Shops & Restaurants at Hudson Yards has been undergoing significant re-merchandising with several comings and goings of stores. Aside from Neiman’s, there were other COVID-19-related closings at the shopping center including the Citarella Gourmet Market, Banana Republic and Sephora. But there have also been some additions, including within the last few months, Alo Yoga, Bulgari and IWC Schaffhausen. Mango is opening soon. Also, Wells Fargo is moving into space previously occupied by Neiman Marcus.

Jacobs marked his brand’s 40th anniversary this year, and he underscored the milestone with a spectacular spring 2024 runway show in the Park Avenue Armory in New York attended by his longtime collaborators and friends including Debby Harry, Sofia Coppola, Dakota Fanning and Chloë Sevigny, as reported by WWD. The show featured the large-scale sculpture of American artist Robert Therrien’s 2006 work “No Title” (the supersize folding table and chairs) and models in equally exaggerated fashions and big bouffant hair. As WWD reported, with 47 looks, Jacobs hammered home the idea of “simple” clothing’s ability to be fantastical and impactful via impeccably tailored, oversize silhouettes with nods to ‘60s housewives; modern (and early 2000s) streetwear; Japanese constructions; men’s naval uniforms, and child-like, paper-doll nostalgia.
