MCM continues its commitment in mixing art and fashion, and as a start on their initiatives they are collaborating with prominent artists. This summer, MCM teams up with pop art wiz duo Craig and Karl and created a limited collection called “Eyes on the Horizon”.
The "Eyes on the Horizon" collection by Craig and Karl evokes a sunny optimism, recalling sun kissed vacations and the youthful excitement of an endless summer. The artwork is focused on playful eyes peering out through pairs of sunglasses while the glasses take on amusing and abstracted forms to add a sense of fun and modernity to the collection. Craig and Karl paired the eyes with splashes of color and summer motives like palm trees, water reflections and everything that adds a summery breeze to it.
The collection offers various styles ranging from backpacks with humorous prints and pop colored document holders, a briefcase as well as of course the ever favorite shopper series. Complementary accessories in different color schemes, all playing with the iconic Visetos pattern, feature pouches, wallets, charms and a glass case.
Craig and Karl are two artists living in two cities on opposite sides of the Atlantic Ocean. Craig is based in New York and Karl in London so they are always a horizon's distance away from each other. Despite their locations they still collaborate on an everyday basis to create bold work that is filled with simple messages executed in a thoughtful and often humorous way. The collection name is also a nod to Craig and Karl's physical locations.
The complete collection will be available in MCM flagship boutiques and selected retailers worldwide this June.
