My MANy Bags News #120
Mackage Takes Manhattan!
Time flies by since my last post about Mackage, the outerwear brand best known for impeccable tailoring with a sexy edge. Yesterday I got an update from Mackage and it seems their growing success has prompted them to host their first free-standing retail location in Manhattan’s Meatpacking District commencing September 1, 2009. A first for the brand, this pop-up location store will open its doors on 829 Washington Street, between Little West 12th and Gansevoort for the entire month of September. It will offer the full range of Mackage’s luxe wool coats, exquisite leathers, sleek trenches, unique puffys and packables:-) So do check it out if you are in NYC! (I was invited to a special one-on-one store viewing, but will not be able to, since I am not travelling to NYC then. Sob sob...perhaps next time!:-P)
There is also wonderful news of the designers’ plans for Fall 2009 which includes the launch of a permanent retail space in Paris, scheduled in November 2009. So Parisians, keep a lookout for the debut of Mackage in your chic french capital! I am really thrilled and exited for Mackage:-) Congrats!
Here's pics from the brand's Fall Winter 2009 campaign. Shot beautifully against winterscapes and classic elegant manors, the campaign fully epitomises the strong aristocrat and equestrian looks of Mackage's Fall Winter collection. A tension created by opposing elements, of masculine and feminine. Don't you love those tall riding boots, skin tight distressed jeans, plaid and shiny parka coats! It's going to be another stylish winter...thanks to Mackage!
