NEW YORK, Nov 3, 2009 / — A collection that effortlessly combines the exclusive heritage of the MCM brand with modern silhouettes and distinctive detail, MCM New York in its second season embraces spring with a collection of essential luxurious bags.
Designed by Joy Gryson, in collaboration with the MCM Design Team, Spring 2010 builds on the foundations of the Fall 09 launch, with the addition of new sophisticated shapes, elegant hardware and unparalleled materials.
Designed to incorporate the dynamic energy of New York City with the inherent elegance of the brand, the spring 2010 collection is the epitome of modern luxury. Sold exclusively at Saks Fifth Avenue stores nationwide and the MCM Plaza Boutique, an MCM New York bag is the ultimate accessory for the modern woman, devoted to style and luxury.
New to the collection, the Annodare, meaning knot in Italian, is constructed using lightweight sumptuous lambskin and features an elegant silver chain detail. The knotting technique adds subtle femininity, juxtaposed by a tie dye effect on the leather. Superb new hardware, a metal oval ring, embossed with the MCM logo is attached to the center knot, serving as a focal point for this stylish new design. The Annodore shapes include the small cross body hobo, large hobo and tote available in seductive shades of black, royal blue, light grey and chalk/black
The Notte group returns with elegant additions including the chic Fashion Tote and shoulder bag.
Notte bags feature upgraded soft lambskin leather in a range of colors including black, cuoio, metallic gold, metallic python gold, and grey.
The bags are finished with sophisticated pale gold hardware and accented with embossed leather.
New for spring, the Fashion Tote introduces a modern circular handle, and is offered in grainy lambskin with a glittery metallic finish or opulent textured leather.
The Sportivo has three new shapes for spring, engineered to thrill the most discerning of fashionistas. The clutch is a stylish addition, perfectly sized for a night out on the town, available in a dazzling mirror metallic and metallic gold python. In contrast, the new Bowler’s proportions cater to the everyday activity of the modern luxury woman.
The Sportivo collection also includes shapes such as the satchel, hobo, shopper and tote – all constructed using goat leather and calf leather trim in feature shades of black, pale blue, pale violet, white with grey accent and gunmetal.
