After its launch, M+RC NOIR quickly became a success among street-wear enthusiasts due to its clean, strong aesthetic which smoothly merges urban and luxury codes. The iconic bomber jackets and rain jackets have already become a must-have as they draw inspiration from the golden age of the American street-wear scene, especially from the eighties and nineties.
Currently, M+RC NOIR sells exclusively online – except in Japan – and is working to have its first London store in 2017.
“Essentials is the perfect blend of product and culture from a brand like Converse. Focussed around classic sportswear items, redefined for streetwear….it mirrors the story of Converse as a brand, born in sport, raised by the streets.”
For the Fall/Winter 2017 collection, Gildas Loaëc and Masaya Kuroki, co-founders and artistic directors of Maison Kitsuné, drew their inspiration from American pop culture and the aesthetic and creative energie of New York born, Paris based, artist William Klein.
