Heavily referencing Beatles frontman John Lennon and his wife Yoko Ono’s “bed-ins” for peace during the Vietnam War in 1969, the MM6 collection sees a line-up of white apparel and accessories representing a happy marriage as a contrast to the tumultuous social situation. Highlighted pieces include the Cotton Apron Top and Logo Long Gloves. The gloves can be worn with the Logo Long-sleeve Jersey Bodysuit for an edgier touch. Elsewhere, the Logo Sweater is arrives in a relaxed fit and side slit hemline, and features an oversized 6 logo patch on the front.
While the popular Glam Slam Bags are offered in multiple styles, such as Mini Belt Bags, Bucket Bags and Mini Backpacks for daily switch-ups, other small leather goods like coin cases, cardholders, wallets and clutches arrive with the fashion house’s signature topstitching detailing. Rounding out the range is a slew of sought-after footwear, including the Tabi Calfskin Ankle Boots, Tabi Loafer and Stitching Ankle Boots.
