Joy Gryson has added yet another gig to her résumé: the bag designer who oversees her namesake collection, a diffusion line known as Olivia Harris and a design studio alongside her husband, Peter Gryson, is launching a line of bags with MCM.
The collection, called MCM New York, marks a departure for the company, which was founded in 1976 and whose initials stand for Mode Creation Munich. Sleek and urban, the Gryson-designed line is comprised of three groups — the Sportivo, Notte and Giorno — each of which emphasizes detailing such as chains and pleating. The concept is that edgier construction — angular silhouettes in snakeskin and python — will lure a city-savvy shopper.
Hermès is launching a Laundromat pop-up shop in NYC - dubbed Hermèsmatic - where customers can bring their old scarves to be dip-dyed by an expert. Get all the details on WWD.com. #wwdnews (📷: @donstahl)
