FASHION::Throwback Fashion–MCM

Published on December 2, 2010 by   ·   No Comments

I love retro fashion…….I love making old things new again…..I love rocking throwbacks and pretending as though it never went out of style; rocking designers my mother and father wore during their flirting days–brands that have long left the street life and may or may not have evolved into an exclusive brand.  MCM is one of those brands that made a huge mark on the fashion industry–particularly the hip hop genre–namely east coast.  But what you may not have known is MCM isn’t American bred.

MCM stands for Mode Creation Munich is Germany‘s luxury brand, founded in 1976 in Germany, but now based in South KoreaMode Creation Munich is headed by chairman and CEO Sung-Joo Kim. It now has offices in 8 countries worldwide with over 70 boutiques.
