Korean Artist Eddie Kang worked with high-end luxury label MCM to craft a collaborative collection based off his own 'Animamix' art style. The artist blended his signature, vibrant artwork with the classic MCM pieces and to conjure up offerings that include: phone charms, phone cases, wristlets and handbags. The collection boasts sweet and playfully colored patterns. The cartoon character found on the offerings is inspired by Kang's own adopted puppy, Loveless, as he previously endured cruel treatment.

The MCM x Eddie Kang collection is something that the artist has always dreamed of doing, and delivers the messages of "Adopt Don't Shop" and "Save The Loveless" in honor of his personal pet's story. Kang expresses that he deeply admires the brand's design heritage and that it was an honor to inspire positive change with MCM's platform.
