Welcome to our MCM Flagship Boutique - Welcome to SHANGHAI!
Did you know that Shanghai is not only China's largest city by population but also the largest city in the world! More than 23 million people call "Shanghai" their home and makes it that colorful and lively as it is. It is a global city, with influence in commerce, culture, finance, media, fashion, technology, and transport. It is a major financial center and has one of the busiest container port in the world.
And do you remember our collaboration with contemporary artist Craig Redman? Our luxury brand and the creative mind created The SHANGHAI COLLECTION that featured the history of our beloved brand with a modern look of Redman's perfect use: colour and traditional elements - There are three different rope designs available: candy colours, red & white for the ladies and a more masculine one using shades of grey. The collection counts 17 pieces in total, including three bags especially for men. The outstanding patterns showed ropes that are significant for the harbor of Shanghai.
But back to the city: Shanghai is a popular tourist destination renowned for its historical landmarks such as The Bund, City God Temple and Yuyuan Garden, as well as the extensive and growing Pudong skyline. And since January 2010 we warmly welcome MCM lovers that loves the vibrant city as much as we do:
