MCM Teams with Craig & Karl for a Fashion-Art Second-Act Rendezvous


In celebration of the winter holiday season, European luxury purveyor MCM voyages on a ski-sloped adventure, proudly announcing the second collaboration with the art whiz double-act, Craig & Karl. After a highly successful Spring/Summer ‘Eyes on the Horizon debut, MCM continues their momentous pop-luxe limited edition anthology unveiling an unforgettable tour-de-style entitled, “Beyond Snowdome.” In a spectacular art-meets-fashion second act, the latest venture casts a spotlight on the visual arts, fêting the brand’s promise of passion, creativity and modernity.


Reminiscent of snow-capped mountains, après-ski ambiances and frothing hot chocolates with marshmallow glaciers, the mastermind-duo introduces a variety of styles featuring playful eyes gazing through ski goggles and snowflakes cascading over fine leather and Visetos noir. Crisp colors and arctic prints reflect on memories of wintertime such as glacial blues, iced teals, Santa reds and frosted-fuchsias. The Beyond Snowdome collection features a bevy of shapes that leap from the peaks for today’s High-Alpine fashionista, ranging from backpacks & briefcases to pouches & wallets. Each bag bestows a rustic-meets-eco-modern attitude, creating a romantic, cozy image of the season.

Moderne Creation München bloomed on the heels of a cultural renaissance of modernism, novelty, innovation and progressivism during the 1970’s in Munich, Germany. Embodying the rebellious yet sophisticated, culturally rich spirit of Munich, the brand reflects the inspiration and attitude from the city’s glamorous and legendary age, a long-time favorite of international royalty, celebrities and VIPs. MCM is renowned for excellence in European craftsmanship, continuing to be the pioneer of the market by continuously evolving with clever designs, durable materials and delivering versatile styles to suit every need. An East-meets-West phenomenon, the brand offers sophisticated handbags, practical and stylish luggage, functional business bags, backpacks and trendy small leather goods. All crafted from materials such as leather, fabric and exotic skins styles are offered in various color ways including signature MCM Cognac Visetos to statement-making models in strong colors. MCM has boutiques in major cities throughout the world including Athens, Beijing, Berlin, Düsseldorf, Hong Kong, London, New York, Seoul and Shanghai. The brand is also sold by prestigious retailers in key markets including the United States, United Kingdom, Dubai, Italy and Russia.
