The line features two playful pop-art characters, Viktor and Viktoria, as MCM’s mascots for the games. These cartoons adorn a range of leather goods, including the iconic backpacks, pouches and tote bags, with passport wallets, zipped wallets and card wallets on the smaller side of the scale. The entire collection will be available at MCM flagship boutiques and select retailers worldwide from June 2014.
With the 2014 FIFA World Cup fast approaching and levels of excitement rising, it’s understandable that so many brands are jumping on the bandwagon. German-born, Korean-owned purveyors of luxury leather goods, MCM, are known for their penchant for limited edition collaborations and collections. This time around the brand has decided to create a capsule collection inspired and featuring all things football – in celebration of the Brazil-hosted event.
