Boyband in Black

Calling all EXO-holics: from k-pop to couture, MCM joins forces with boyband EXO celebrating the next episode in its high-octane collaboration where ex-plosive styles collide with ex-clusive shapes.  Shedding their space ex-plorer silhouettes from Bionic, the megastar ensemble reassumed their signature boyband-next-door ambiance, in an off-duty contemporary-meets-classic co-operation.

Debuting with rebellious, off-road styles and evolving to demure, whitened silhouettes, the superstar band takes the MCM collaboration to the next level, unveiling their first collection for Autumn / Winter 2015.  Entitled the MCM X EXO-Line, the boyband launches in black, presenting a monochromatic collective of innovative lifestyle accessories and essentials designed to bring the exosphere ex-perience up close & panache.

The exclusive lifestyle collection is uniquely designed with an understated iconographic X-shaped motif on the façade, envisioned to fuse two opposing M’s in commemoration of MCM & EXO narrative.  From ultramodern to unconventional, the distinguished emblem is embossed with shiny matt leather, layered over a canvas of sumptuous nappa cowhide creating a dimensional impression on the façade.  Fitted with a series of gunmetal hardwares and harcore clasps with bold fittings, the exquisite collection purveys a minimalist tough-‘luxe ambiance, articulated through an edgy yet sophisticated aesthetic.  Get to know the collection, here :
