The MCM x Christopher Raeburn 2017 Spring/Summer lookbook features wavy visuals from Kenta Cobayashi.
In light of the 40th anniversary of MCM, the luxury travel brand has collaborated with upcoming British designer Christopher Raeburn on the “Made to Move” capsule collection intended for the global traveller. A commitment to responsible design was established by both sides, which has been one of the inspiring forces behind the new collection constructed merely from sustainable materials. All fabrics used have undergone strict approval from bluesign® system for sustainable textile production, including the innovative Schoeller 4-way-stretch and Ecoalf Nylon.
There are also some notable key features added to the designs. The quilted “M” is a collaborative take on the brand’s iconic logo, minimalised to represent innovation in sustainability while the Sonic Wave pieces seen throughout is another interpretation of the logo, resembling a sound wave.
The Splinter Camo series intertwines Raeburn’s signature Remade look with MCM’s recognizable Visetos canvas. Dove grey, crisp blue, and bright lemon yellow are worked into graphics, perfectly matching the fragmented imagery created by emerging Japanese artist Kenta Cobayashi, who has recently been featured in publications like 032C and VOP, for this year’s 2017 spring/summer lookbook.
