You read the headline correctly: Mike D, Michael Diamond, one third of what was once the Beastie Boys, has released a line of accessories and tees in collaboration with accessory designer Clare Vivier. Mike claims that he decided to pursue design due to the fact that he was a grown man carrying around a backpack, and he wanted to carry something more sophisticated. The MDCV Collection features different types of receptacles for everything Mike totes around with him on the daily: a passport, sunglasses, keys, toiletries, your laptop, etc. and features the MDCV x Nixon watch as well. The line focuses on simplicity and functionality and although targeted to men, the stylish pieces can clearly be used by all genders. The line is available on the Clare V. website; have a look at a few key pieces of the line below.
