For those savvy gals old enough to remember MCM, the brand after years of hibernation is trying to come back. In its old glory days, I remembered celebs and wealthy alike sported MCM logo luggage while jetting to exotic locations around the globe. Suddenly the brand just disappeared due to financial challenges. Savvy mother gave me a small Kelly-ish bag as birthday gift years ago. Back then, I remembered MCM offered either black nylon logo or leather dark tan logo prints.MCM has made a great come back and is trying to establish the brand as a luxury leader in the handbag market again, I am happy for its revival but I have not seen anything so savvy with collection to make a savvy gal run out to bring the new bag home where it belongs.
-MCM brocade shopper $545
-MCM croc emboss clutch $795
Looking at the collection, Savvy Gal finds nothing other houses have not done in past seasons. Also, there is nothing truly unique about these bags. I would like the clutch more without the gold MCM plate. It really looked like the designer did not know where to put the logo but still wanted logo on the clutch. Are we gals so logo crazed that by putting logos on a piece of clothing, a bag and a pair of shoes are enough reasons to buy something regardless of quality or style.
-Princess Lion Flat Shopper in coated canvas $495
-Small Boston Satchel $995, on sale for $597 at Bloomingdales
So all the savvy gals, will you buy MCM again or for those new potential clients, will you buy MCM?
