New School luxury brand MCM presents its Spring/Summer 2018 collection, Viva Life! – a celebration of energy and endless discovery through a range of new styles both vibrant and forward-thinking in their design.
The collection takes as its starting point three life-giving sources of inspiration: the season of spring; sport; and travel, each of which informs exciting new styles, fabrications and colorways for the discerning global nomad.
At the core of the brand’s new seasonal offering is the Trisha shoulder bag. The softer, sexier sister to MCM’s Patricia bag, Trisha is the latest in a series of chic shoulder styles inspired by Patty – one of the brand’s most popular archive designs. Offered in three luxurious options including monogrammed leather, chain detail leather and suede, Trisha is the perfect spring accessory. Elsewhere, painterly florals abound in a series of bright Essentials which combine MCM’s timeless shapes with a multi-textured, delicately feminine orchid print to charming effect.
Key to the collection is a series of all-new styles and finishes inspired by sporting prowess. The Victory Patch motif channels badges traditionally found on the uniforms of race car drivers, while the Stark Chevron Visetos series includes styles that seamlessly fuse a symbol of formidable strength and progress with the brand’s timelessly stylish coated canvas. In keeping with its reputation as a leading purveyor of backpacks, the brand also debuts the Kreuzberg, a spacious and super-functional backpack inspired by its archival rucksack design.
Testament to MCM’s heritage in crafting superior travel goods, the collection also includes an arrayof vacation-ready styles – from luggage in bold seasonal prints and its iconic visetos to chic and brightly striped handbags made from lightweight yet resilient canvas. This is a collection inspired by life, for living it.
NEW FOR SS18
With its soft curves and compact construction, Trisha is the sexier, more svelte alternative to the iconic Patricia bag. Available in three sumptuous finishes, and adorned with delicate trapunto detailing, this sleek and lightweight style is perfect for the spring/summer season.
ESSENTIAL FLORAL PRINT
Fresh, feminine and super-functional, MCM Essentials get the Floral Print treatment this season. Lightweight and hard-wearing thanks to their visetos construction, these bags also boast a multi-textured surface that combines digital printing, fine embroidery and flocking for a dynamic look and feel.
New for SS18, the Kreuzberg reinforces MCM’s status as a leader in innovative backpack design. Functional, yet beautifully formed, this archive-inspired style is fully fit for purpose as a conventional rucksack, offering a clean and modern design, ample storage space and ultra-padded straps for unrivalled comfort.
GUNTA M STRIPE VISETOS
Bold, yet wearable, this season’s most striking print is inspired by the work of German textile artist Gunta Stölzl. Rendered in a graphic blue, black, white and gray colorway and featuring a hidden “M”- shape repeat within their pattern, bags in Gunta M Stripe Visetos strike the balance between subtle and statement-making.
STARK CHEVRON VISETOS
Built for the daring global nomad, Stark backpacks in this season’s Chevron Visetos bring together a symbol of formidable strength and progress and the brand’s timelessly stylish coated canvas. These color-black styles are available in black, red and white and green, blue and white.
In keeping with MCM’s penchant for playful details, Victory Patch styles fuse the brand’s iconic visetos coated canvas with colorful 3D patches inspired by the uniforms of race car drivers. Bold, irreverent and slightly tongue in cheek, these bags are effortlessly stylish conversation starters.
Riviera chic meets vibrant color in the Summer Canvas series. Elegant, lightweight and crafted from breathable yet durable canvas, these vacation-ready bags make traveling in style a cinch.
