Marc Jacobs, the American designer and creative director at Louis Vuitton, has become engaged to his ad executive boyfriend of about a year, Lorenzo Martone. Martone is currently listed on his Linked-In profile as Strategic Planner at Chandelier Creative, "a full service creative agency based in New York City... dedicated to making real, strategic change for fashion, beauty, retail, travel, and luxury lifestyle brands."
According to Women's Wear Daily, Jacobs and Martone will formally announce the engagement today when they arrive in Brazil wearing matching rings. They are headed to Martone's native Sao Paolo for a party to celebrate the Marc Jacobs multibrand store, which opened its doors in January. Jacobs will also meet Martone's mother for the first time. As of yet, they have not set date for the wedding.
