Good news MCM-lovers - guess who was spotted wearing MCM? None other than US superstar producer and recording artist will.i.am! For his set at the UK Summertime Ball 2013 he chose to wear an MCM biker jacket (one of my faves - the man has good taste), in navy/black with gold monogrammed sleeves.
will.I.am, as well as being an all-around musical genius is also hailed for his really cool sense of style. He is a veritable chameleon, never afraid to try out new trends. I personally enjoy seeing him going from modern tailoring to more urban gear with aplomb. Now, I wonder if his pal Justin Bieber was the one who gave him MCM-itis? We all know Justin is one of our biggest fans, and we also know our fans just LOVE to show off their MCM collection, so who knows, perhaps the two of them had a little conversation about the best MCM items?
Let's see what will.i.am has to say about the Summertime Ball.
