The Eyes on the Horizon collection, our special collaboration with Craig & Karl is very special indeed. I love it, The Janes love it, the international press loves it. I haven't met a single person who hasn't fallen in love with the C&K for MCM's creations. The collection launched in HK to great success and is soon launching in Florence at Pitti Uomo and Firenze4Ever too!
I think it has to do with the fact that this collaboration is so quirky and playful, an ode to Summer escapades and that it mixes Craig & Karl's bold illustrations with the most iconic MCM features. The artwork features cartoony renditions of sunglasses, palm trees and water reflections against a Cognac Visetos background. It instantly brings back memories of the seemingly endless Summers of when we were kids and a desire to just step out and play for hours! Who doesn't want to dream back to those Summers?
The inspiration for the collection comes from long Summer holidays, games on the beach, pin-ups peering over their outrageously cool sunglasses and the print mixers and texture clashers seen on the streets of London and NYC. The colours: mimosa yellow, navy blue, burnt orange contrast nicely with the cognac visetos palette. This is a collection about escaping to Paradise where the sun always shines, the sand blinds you with its whiteness and the sea is such a vibrant shade of turquoise, you don't need to use instagram filters! Welcome to the land of the Endless Summer, where everyone is beautiful, everyone is happy and everything is fun.
Some of the recurring motifs from the collection - palm trees, sunglasses, eyes and dots.
