Established in 1976, MCM takes its name from the initials of its founder, Michael Cromer, plus Munich, where the brand was launched. MCM Worldwide is a luxury leather goods company and was hugely popular in the ‘80’s and ‘90’s, known for its bold and flamboyant designs. The brand has recently resurfaced, under ownership of the Sungjoo Group since 2005. With a relaunch in 2006 under the Korean group, MCM retains its extravagant heritage, though is reimagined for a modern audience. The label is still based in Munich, with Dirk Schönberger as Creative Director.
Producing bags, shoes and accessories for men and women, MCM Worldwide is best known for their luggage and leather goods. The brand follows a modern approach to luxury, fusing high-end fabrics and craftsmanship with new-school design. Many of their styles feature monogrammed logo prints- a staple design which has become iconic to the brand. Merging a street-wear influence with exceptional quality, MCM Worldwide creates high-end pieces with an urban edge. From crossbody bags, totes and backpacks to luggage and accessories, each collection features fine nappa leather, suede linings and gold plated hardware. Studded details, graffiti motifs and colour blocking adds a contemporary flair to luxurious designs, while structured shapes are classic yet statement. In easy neutrals or bold brights, MCM offers audacious designs as well as understated pieces to work well with any outfit. MCM Worldwide is consistently timeless and daring, producing prestigious leather goods which will be worn year after year.
With stores across the world, from Frankfurt to Singapore, MCM Worldwide is also available online through the brand’s own store.
