Marc Jacobs & Char Defrancesco green velvet

Marc Jacobs, the fashion designer, married his partner Charly 'Char' DeFrancesco in April 2019. They married at The Grill Room, Manhattan in New York. Their cake was taller than both the men!

Both Marc and Char opted for Huntsman bespoke suits, which have an eye watering price tag starting from £3500.00.

Marc Jacobs choosing to wear a fitted lounge suit with large lapels and a matching waistcoat. Where as ‘Char’ opted for a striking bottle green velvet shawl collared dinner suit and green hand-tied bow tie. Both wore tiny penguin brooches given to them by Prada and Miu Miu design director Fabio Zambernardi.

“Penguins have only one partner and mate for life,” Jacobs explained on Instagram. “A great example of faithfulness and fidelity. So grateful to you and love you so much dear Fabio.”
