I am not sure how I am going to be able to write this post as I am so, so excited about the new collection in collaboration with artists Craig Redman and Karl Maier... Seriously, it ticks all the right boxes: beautiful Cognac Visetos leather, super cool illustrations, timeless design and interesting colour ways. I wish I could carry all the bags at once! But anyway, before I get too carried away and start hyperventilating, let me introduce you to the collection and tell you a little about it. This way we can all have a little dance thinking about how awesome it is.
The Artists... as seen by themselves!
I am sure you remember our very first collaboration with Craig Redman - The Shanghai Collection. It was a beautiful pop art homage to the city of Shanghai mixing classic and contemporary and bringing a splash of colour to our traditional Cognac Visetos. This time, we are collaborating with not only NYC based Craig Redman, but also with his partner in crime London based Karl Maier. Although they live on different sides of the world, they collaborate daily to create bold pieces of art as well as pop art infused commercial pieces. They've exhibited before at the Musee de la Publicite in the Louvre in Paris, and they worked with all the most respected brands including MCM of course! You can find out more about this talented duo on their website.

Recurring motifs from the collection and a self portrait of the artists
The "Eyes on the Horizon" collection is a quirky and playful ode to Summer escapades, mixing 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!
Grab your favourite bag from the collection and your favourite friend and go on a Summer adventure!
