Power Pieces: The MCM Backpack

Power Pieces: The MCM Backpack

Punctuated with chunky studs, faux pearls and crystals, in bold paint-box hues and molten metallics, and the ultimate showcase for the instantly recognisable Cognac Visetos monogram print, MCM certainly makes choosing between its vast array of backpacks a tricky (read: 'bag lover’s dream') task. The contemporary appeal of the MCM backpack, however, belies the brand’s distinctive heritage.

Founded in Munich, Germany, in 1976, MCM was an instant hit with the jet set thanks to its leather trunk and hard suitcases, which debuted the beribboned laurel leaves – referencing the Greek symbol for victory – and black diamonds – a nod to the Bavarian flag – of the Cognac Visetos print. A-list fans included Diana Ross and Cindy Crawford, and, in more recent years, the likes of Beyoncé and Chloë Sevigny.

A street-style favourite, the MCM backpack strikes that much-strived for balance of being practical but totally on point. From the X-Mini, complete with convertible straps so it can be worn four ways, to the full Stark family, each bag features a brass plate engraved with its unique number, making it even more tempting to start a collection.
