MKI BLACK Spring/Summer 2014 ‘High Grain’ Collection

Denim and leather go together like a hand in gloves and for this reason we have featured the latest offering from MKI BLACK.MKI is a Leeds based store with its own in house label MKI Black which has caught our attention due to its conceptualisation and design as well as the use of premium materials. MKI was launched in 2010 by creative director Vik Tailor who’s idea behind the brand was to offer designer products and quality garments from a designer perspective, at a much more modest price point. The collections are made to be accessible in both wear-ability and affordability.

The name MKI is derived from the Japanese term Miyuki-Zoku pronounced Mee-You-Kee.

THE FIRST JAPANESE TO ADOPT ELEMENTS OF THE IVY LEAGUE LOOK WERE A YOUTH TRIBE CALLED THE MIYUKI-ZOKU, WHO SUDDENLY APPEARED IN THE SUMMER OF 1964. THE GROUP’S NAME CAME FROM THEIR STOREFRONT LOITERING ON MIYUKI STREET IN THE UPSCALE GINZA SHOPPING NEIGHBORHOOD (THE SUFFIX “ZOKU” MEANS SUBCULTURE OR SOCIAL GROUP). THE MIYUKI-ZOKU WERE MOSTLY IN THEIR LATE TEENS, A MIX OF GUYS AND GIRLS, LIKELY NUMBERING AROUND 700 AT THE TREND’S PEAK.

MKI BLACK presents its ‘High Grain’ collection which consists of leather jackets that are made from premium cowhides and chrome zipper detailing. The five piece collection is made up of a biker jacket, a rider jacket, a coach jacket and two bomber jackets.
