Meet Craig Redman & Karl Maier, the designing-duo behind the "Eyes on the Horizon Collection"

10-06-2013

main


By now, you are probably familiar with our brand new collaboration with Craig & Karl "Eyes on the Horizon". I introduced you to it last week, The Janes told you about the inspiration behind the collection and we all got really excited about the very special MCM event at Luisa Via Roma next week. Oh I almost forgot: the fashion press picked up on the collection too and everyone from VOGUE to Another Magazine LOVES it. For those of you who were at our HK launch last week, you are very lucky as you got to try out the collection first!

Today, I would like to take some time to tell you a little more about the two talented men behind the collection: Craig Redman and Karl Maier aka Craig & Karl. Hardcore MCM fans (and the others I'm sure) will remember our first collaboration with Craig Redman on the Shanghai Collection (you can read a little interview I did with him about it here).

At work in the studio


Craig Redman and Karl Maier live in different parts of the world. Craig is based in NYC and Karl is here, in London. They specialise in illustration and installation and their work is very sought after by some of the biggest fashion brands as well as magazines and galleries. They've done commissions for LVMH, Google, Apple, the New York Times and VOGUE to name a few.

Their art is bold, colourful and filled with simple messages. Looking at their illustrations or set design you can really see the attention to detail and how thoughtfully everything is done. In case this wasn't enough to convince you to look at their creations, I would like to add that they are also extremely funny. If you don't believe me, have a look at their blog. Below are some of my favourite Craig & Karl pieces:
