Boasting complete ease of wear and even easier styling options, MKI represent how working with reliable, adaptable staples create the perfect multi-functional wardrobe.
Representing this, MKI take the focus of our latest Edit #29- Versatile Style:
The unique aesthetic of MKI combines the urban-edge of underground city movements with refined details of high-end labels, with this street-style look a prime example. The MKI Splinter Camo Fatigue Overshirt anchors the outfit, with the statement abstract camo exterior entwining shades of green, khaki and black in to a contemporary take on a traditional utilitarian style. Providing balance through a warm dark grey colour hue is the MKI Charcoal Fisherman Knit. The sweater adopts a heavyweight, chunky feel with the wool knit forming a loose and healthy stretch for a versatile and comfortable fit. As MKI work to products rather than collections, all clothing pieces remain multi-functional to be manipulated to suit your style.
The key MKI staples are complimented by the Filling Pieces Black Tas Mist Ultra Low Transformed Sneakers that provide a touch of statement styling to the outfit. Alongside the TID Black Leather No.1 Military Wristwatch which adds another dimension to the military-inspired style, courtesy of a strong precision and all-black styling.
As MKI take their name from the Japanese youth tribe Miyuki Zoku, who adapted the American Ivy Look in to their own street-preppy inspired style, this second outfit has a quintessential collegiate feel. The MKI Light Denim Shirt provides a traditional collegiate style in the form of a straight button front, button down collar and left chest pocket. But it is updated in a lightweight cotton denim fabric and simple brand patch above the hem for a more relaxed appeal. Complimenting the light shaded shirt is the MKI Grey Fitted Wool MA-1 Jacket which boasts traditional Bomber jacket features in the form of the cotton ribbed collar, cuff and hem. But in keeping with the MKI’s identity, the MA-1 Jacket is updated with leather zip pulls and a satin lining, in a handsome slim-fit silhouette to make it wearable for every occasion.
Completing the collegiate aesthetic are the ED-85 Slim Tapered Blue Wash Jeans from Edwin; crafted using elasticated fibres for a comfortable flexible jean. Down low, the ETQ Amsterdam Dove Grey Mid Top 1 Sneakers add a luxury feel, with the neutral grey colourway complimented with tonal laces, a white rubber cup sole unit and a fully lined calfskin leather insole for supreme comfort. Whilst adding a sophisticated final touch is the 01-A Silver Black Strap Watch from Scottish watchmakers INSTRMNT.
