The Mother of Monogram Travel: My visit to the MCM Showroom

Founded in 1976, German brand MCM (Mode Creation Munich) crafts luxury leather goods, apparel and footwear for the world's most seasoned travelers. MCM combines iconic German engineered functionality with traditional craftsmanship, offering a heritage of elegance. 

Lately, we've seen an uprising of stylish celebrity endorsements from Chris Brown, Omarion, Selena Gomez, Beyonce, Paloma Faith and Justin Bieber. Something tells me it has to do with the cool hipsters at Factory PR, the brand's US agency of record. 

I had the esteemed pleasure of attending their showroom in Midtown and was instantly overtaken by the glamour, intricate detail and haute look of the new A/W 2014 collection. Truly a brand of artisanal expertise, the brand still manages to remain current and ahead of trend. 

I look the liberty to photographing a few of my favorite pieces to share with you. I look forward to the evolution of this brand as it is influenced by modern lifestyle. They are the reigning mother of MONOGRAM. 

The art of travel. The spirit of adventure. Life is a journey. MCM...
