Handbag News: MCM Handbags Are Making A Comeback

Source: NYT

THE FINAL DAYS OF ’80s excess may have been symbolized by the MCM pocketbook logo: a pair of rearing medieval lions in aggressive repetition that only the truly resolute shopper could remember. Now, as with all things ’80s, the international luxury brand MCM is roaring back, this time minus the pride of lions. The company’s patent tote is quietly becoming a bag of note, seen on the arm of style-makers like Sofia Coppola, generating lengthy waiting lists at the company’s flagship in Berlin and selling swiftly at Colette in Paris and Harrods in London. This week, the bag will arrive in the United States at Bloomingdale’s and Intermix stores, in black, silver, gold and purple, left ($995 to $1,150).

This patent leather satchel-style tote with contrast topstiching, dual front pockets and removable shoulder strap is fierce. I MUST HAVE IT! Thank goodness they decided to leave the lions back at the zoo.

    I bought one for my wife 15 years ago and she still uses it.
