Today's visual treats come courtesy of our friends and collaborators, visual pop-artists Craig& Karl! They were recently commissioned by Modern Weekly China to illustrate a few Chinese celebrities sporting different pieces from MCM collections. I know that you are now very familiar with Craig & Karl's work, as we are in the midst of our second collaboration with them (Beyond Snowdome) and we also worked in the past with Craig Redman on the Shanghai Collection. Basically, we love them and they love us! Their work is always graphic, colourful and tongue-in-cheek, which is why I love it so much.
Illustration featured in Modern Weekly including our Vintage Visetos briefcase, Vintage Visetos trunk, Stark Weekender, Dual Stark and a few pieces from the Beyond Snowdome collection.
