London, Toyko, Chicago and Savannah?

According to The Wall Street Journal, Marc Jacobs will be opening several new botiques this spring, and one of them just happens to be right here in Savannah. Keep your eyes on the corner of Montgomery and Broughton Streets for the new Marc by Marc Jacobs location.

Who is Marc Jacobs, you ask? An American designer with roots in fashion, Marc is the current artistic director for Louis Vuitton, has his own clothing line, fragrance line and a more recent watch line, not to mention that celebrities absolutely love his pieces.

A local Savannah blogger heard that Marc visited Savannah, fell in love with it and there is even talk of him moving to town, purchasing a house right downtown in the historic district.

Another high end shop opening in spring is the Copper Penny. Shop owner Penny Vaigneur says of her decision to locate on Broughton, “I feel like Savannah is a young Charleston…We considered Hilton Head or Savannah for a couple of years and came up with the conclusions that Savannah is the place to be.”

What great news for Savannah!
