Press Day in Seoul - Showroom of Inspirations

09-08-2013

mcm_front


For the first time in three weeks the temperature in Berlin went down to 20 degrees and in this very moment it's even raining cats and dogs. For us Germans, this is kind of a sign that Summer will be over soon. Time to get ready for Fall. 

I'm afraid of saying what I will say now, because karma might hit me back: dear world, I'm in love with the Summer. Big time. But I do also love the Autumn and its cosiness. I can't wait to snuggle up in my favourite sweaters and wear some beautiful new MCM bags while going for a walk, umbrella in hand, staring at at the leaves slowly changing colours and drinking some hot tea. Surprise, surprise! That's what's going to happen very soon, so we'd better get in the mood before it's too late and autumn knocks on our door!


Let's take a look at some of the inspirations we displayed during our press day in Seoul. You've heard of a mood board... but have you experienced one LIVE in living colour?  Proudly presenting:


MCM's Showroom of Inspirations for Autumn/Winter 2013:

We couldn't wait to get our hands on the upcoming Fall 13 styles and so we tried to make our dreams come true... The result: "La vie en Punk" according the Janes.


Here's some inspiration for you - make sure you try this at home. Let the power of music turn your outfit into a fashion statement! 

Grunge :


MCM-Grunge-

Grunge (sometimes referred to as the Seattle sound) is a subgenre of alternative rock that emerged during the mid-1980s in the American state of Washington, particularly in the Seattle area. Clothing commonly worn by grunge musicians in Washington consisted of thrift store items and the typical outdoor clothing (most notably flannel shirts) of the region, as well as a generally unkempt appearance. The style did not evolve out of a conscious attempt to create an appealing fashion; music journalist Charles R. Cross said, "[Nirvana frontman] Kurt Cobain was just too lazy to shampoo," and Sub Pop's Jonathan Poneman said, "This [clothing] is cheap, it's durable, and it's kind of timeless. It also runs against the grain of the whole flashy aesthetic that existed in the 80s."

Stars: Nirvana / Pear Jam / Hole 


Punk :

MCM-Punkrock


Punk is a rock music genre that developed between 1974 and 1976 in the United States, United Kingdom, and Australia. Rooted in garage rock and other forms of what is now known as protopunk music, punk rock bands eschewed perceived excesses of mainstream 1970s rock. Punk bands created fast, hard-edged music, typically with short songs, stripped-down instrumentation, and often political, anti-establishment lyrics. Punk embraces a DIY ethic; many bands self-produced recordings and distributed them through informal channels.

The classic punk rock look among male American musicians harkens back to the T-shirt, motorcycle jacket, and jeans ensemble favored by American greasers of the 1950s associated with the rockabillyscene and by British rockers of the 1960s. 

Stars: Sex Pistols / Ramones / The Clash


(Glam) Rock :


MCM-Rock

Rock music is a genre of popular music that originated as "rock and roll" in the United States in the 1950s, and developed into a range of different styles in the 1960s and later, particularly in the United Kingdom and the United States. 

Glam rock emerged out of the English psychedelic and art rock scenes of the late 1960s and can be seen as both an extension of and reaction against those trends. Musically diverse, varying between the simple rock and roll revivalism of figures like Alvin Stardust to the complex art rock of Roxy Music, and can be seen as much as a fashion as a musical sub-genre

Stars: Rolling Stones / Alice Cooper/ Kiss /  David Bowie

Love and many hugs,
