The humble beginnings of a father-son duo magically evolved into something more than just a designer brand of fashion forward footwear. Marc Antebi, the father, was a successful entrepreneur with over 30 years of global business ventures ranging from manufacturing everyday products, to closing deals with CEO's of Fortune 100 companies. Joseph Antebi, the son and Creative Director, was born and raised in NYC, and has always been a keen observer of the fast paced world of fashion. Marc Joseph New York, born in 2006, was coined by combining the names of the individual founders with the brand's hometown. In a few short years, the label has grown and garnered a loyal following across the globe. From U.S. and Canada, to the UK, Switzerland, and Spain. From Israel to Dubai, Australia, and Japan. Marc Joseph New York prides itself on upholding the virtues of the fashion industry, including of-the-moment Fashion, comfort and quality. At Marc Joseph New York, every shoe is designed with an unsurpassed attention to detail and an unparalleled sense of pride in our craft. We view ourselves not just as fashion designers; but also as artists creating masterpieces. All of our products are handcrafted in Brazil by skilled artisans that have significant expertise in the precise manufacturing techniques needed to produce quality goods; from concept, to design, to production, not a single detail is overlooked.
Marc Joseph is known for luxurious Driving Moccasins and Loafers. The footwear is hand-stitched and crafted from premier quality leathers using state of the art machinery and the most contemporary techniques. An ever-evolving combination of exotic leathers, textures and skins is a point of differentiation that has created a collecting frenzy among Marc Joseph New York fans. According to Joseph, the brand’s co-founder and Creative Director,
My goal is to design shoes that are unique and distinguished in character, incorporating the use of the most luxurious hand finished leathers & components, while remaining practical in every sense. My continuous direct communication with our loyal clientele keeps me in tune with what they desire and seek. I place extensive effort into making sure comfort and fit is unmatched. Each and every style is laboratory tested for its quality, comfort and wear and tear.
The Marc Joseph New York company rests on a foundation of standards that separate and distinguish us from other brands. We were born as a family brand and we continue as such until this very day. Marc says, “This is a family business with my sons handling the day-to-day affairs. It brings me great joy to see our family brand growing and expanding every year.” From the first day Marc Joseph New York was established, and continuing until this day, ten percent of our proceeds are donated to charity. The company takes pride in its philanthropic ways, and continues to increase its financial contributions to the less fortunate.
In 2014 we opened our first boutique in Palm Beach Florida, the heart of where our core resort customers spend their free time. 2015 brought us a second opening in Bonita Springs, Florida. Our boutiques allow us to communicate directly with our clientele and to showcase our full collection and its variety along with exclusive and Limited Edition Styles.
