Return of the Mackie: Alister Mackie and Matches Fashion join forces for an exclusive drop of shirts
Central Saint Martin’s alum and creative director Alister Mackie has quite the CV - having previously consulted for Alexander McQueen, Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs and Fendi - but we think it might be his exclusive drop with Matches Fashion that firmly cements him as the king of style arbitrary.
His first collaboration with a retailer compromises of eight, heavyweight silk-twill shirts that under the theme ‘the collector’ tell individual stories of varying artistic history. From leopards to men on horseback, the collections imagery embodies a dark-surrealism and will ensure your shirt game is at the rock ‘n roll center of any conversation.
Mackie says of his first collaboration with a retailer:
“I felt the time was right to work on some personal projects. Last year I've put together a magazine project called "The Leopard" and this set of shirts felt like a nice follow on from that. MATCHESFASHION were incredibly enthusiastic and helpful towards the project and I felt that they were a good fit for the type of piece we would like to make.” The exclusive collection will launch on the 27th February, available from Matchesfashion.com, and if our exclusive look at the Victoriana-esque botanical shirt doesn’t have you ‘adding to cart’ stat, then we don’t know what will.
