Mik Cire by Eric Kim Fall 2010

Urban equestrian meets rock and roller for Eric Kim’s new menswear line, Mik Cire. The former CEO and designer of Monarchy impressed the crowd with his edgy yet relaxed, East coast meets West aesthetic. Models walked the runway clad in nattily fit leather motorcycle jackets, lambskin/ cashmere 3/4 length coats with asymmetrical zippers, drop crotch coated denim, cropped wool trousers and pony hair briefcases. Plaid made its way onto the fronts of coats (in a refined but punk, 90’s grunge nod), and flannel blended with cashmere and wool in vests. The result was a tough, yet elegant collection for the NYC urbanite who has a bit of the West coast, Montana range in him. Effortless and endlessly appealing. A gorgeous first for this veteran designer, who is also a father. His adorable baby son made an appearance during his bow donning (would you expect anything less?) dropped red suspenders and wool cap. A perfectly executed show and promising new collection.
