Have you heard of or seen MCM bags and their other fine leather goods? I will admit. When I first started seeing the brand on the arms of fashion industry insiders and celebrities last year, I wondered who, what, when, where, and why? I wasn’t very familiar with the brand at all so I did a little snooping around. Soon I saw the brand in magazines, the internet, and vintage photos of rappers from the 80s. Then I vaguely remembered seeing the brand as a child.
Mode Creation Munich was founded in 1976 as a new luxury line of fine leather travel goods. Their signature brass plate and cognac visetos collection became famous in the 70s and 80s. Now the brand is back with new collections and items for both men and women. During New York Fashion Week, I was able to visit the showroom and see some of the new items. You can see some of the items from these collections in the pictures I took with my iPad. I can honestly say that I am now a fan of MCM. I basically wanted everything I took a picture of. Then they gave me a look book. I now want everything in the look book.
MCM is sold in in quite a few stores around the country, including several Saks Fifth Avenue stores, and other places around the world. Use the store locator to find a store near you.
