Autumn/Winter 2016-17 Collection
Communicating both the brand’s founding tenets of innovation, inspiration, and artistry as well as the gaming theme of its new collection, the campaign features starkly beautiful portraits of Jagger cradling graphic, brightly colored accessories. The inspired choice of the British-US model directly references the cultural underground of ’70s Munich, then a destination for subversive society and rock royalty. Photographer Daniel Jackson captures Jagger’s fearless essence as it stands in relation to MCM’s daring new line of accessories. Themed “Game On, Diamond Land!” the Spring/Summer 2015 collection boasts a variety of hyper color patterns, intriguing textures, and powerful shapes. Each vivid, brave piece in the new campaign represents a distinct MCM signature, be it the gleaming gold studs of the Heritage collection or the searing, acid-bright diamond patterns of the Stark backpack. Featuring revolutionary accessories such as the graceful Milla tote bag and the multifunctional Bebe Boo ultra-mini backpack and an iconic personality, the Spring/Summer campaign serves as an ode to the passion and inspiration that founded MCM. It is the same daring spirit that led a creative revolution in ’70s Munich and continues to influence and inspire today.
