The Bags Have Eyes: Craig & Karl Delivers a Kooky-Cool Line For MCM
If you're familiar with artists Craig Redman and Karl Maier, then you probably don't need us to tell you that this is one very accomplished duo of illustrators who have worked on projects for brands like Google, Nike, Apple, Vogue and The New York Times and shown their work at the Louvre. If you're not, then there's no better time to introduce you to Craig & Karl than with their partnership with German luxury brand MCM, in which they deliver an exclusive collection of handbags, entitled Eyes on the Horizon.
It's a crafty-cool rendition of prints on staple bags, each with a cheeky pair of eyes peering through sunglasses. The quirky image obviously gave the collection its namesake, but the title also hints at the artists' unique geographical story. While they work together daily, Craig is based in New York and Karl is in London. As a result, they are quite literally horizons apart. Clever, no? The irresistible collab is available this month at MCM boutiques and selected retailers worldwide — click through to start plotting your purchase.
