Vogue Germany Celebrates Advent with MCM

17-12-2013

With just a few days left 'till Christmas Eve, we're counting down the days & celebrating party season with style!

We're of course already searching for the perfect under-the-tree dress to pair it with one of MCM's most glamourous and extraordinary lines ever: The Marlene Collection. A pattern-bomb that couldn't be more suitable for the 24th of December, right? 

Seems like one of the world's hugest magazines and authorities in style, VOGUE, or better: the ultimate fashion Bible, totally agrees. So I found this lovely feature of Vogue celebrating advent with MCM by hosting a little giveaway - the 6th of December officially was the MCM-Marlene-Day up there on Vogue.de!

Let's take a closer look at the wonderful Marlene Collection and meet the little beauties that turned into serious Must-Haves this season:

This season, MCM takes a ‘flight of fashion’ debuting the illustrious Marlene Collection, landing on the runways of style. Inspired by the distinguished Marlene Dietrich, MCM’s latest jet-set pioneer is designed to commemorate Dietrich’s distinctiveness in style as the first classic film icon to break the boundaries between masculine & feminine aesthetics!


No wonder VOGUE chose MCM to be the ultimate

"Nikolaus" (as the Germans say) giveaway:

Here's how "Door Number 6" of Vogue's Advent Special looked like:

But why did MCM chose Marlene Dietrich as their inspiration for the signature collection?

Here's the answer: 

Dietrich remained popular throughout her long career by continually re-inventing herself, professionally and characteristically. In the Berlin of the 1920s, she acted on the stage and in silent films. Her performance as "Lola-Lola" in The Blue Angel, directed by Josef von Sternberg, brought her international fame and provided her a contract with Paramount Pictures in the US. Hollywood films such as Shanghai Express and Desire capitalised on her glamour and exotic looks, cementing her stardom and making her one of the highest-paid actresses of the era. Dietrich became a U.S. citizen in 1939, and throughout World War II she was a high-profile frontline entertainer. Although she still made occasional films in the post-war years, Dietrich spent most of the 1950s to the 1970s touring the world as a successful show performer.

The result:

Introducing an artistic juxtaposition between softness & rigidity in material and design, The Marlene Collection harmonises the boldness of exotic snakeskin with a smooth velvety form. Available in auburn & black, the Dietrich-duet boasts a facade of genuine snakeskin featuring original leather and with viscova cotton lining, creating a contrasting chiaroscuro effect. Ideal for refined style mavens and contemporary style-savants, MCM’s novel Marlene Collection rouses the fantasy & nostalgia of the classics within the milieu of contemporary high-fashion.



We hope you enjoyed our little Christmas special featuring Vogue Germany and got some holiday inspiration!
Lots of Love,
 

The Janes <3
