I first heard of this brand last year while browsing online, and since then have been a loyal fan of their essence and design.

Following their successful hoodie collection, married couple Mike Gonzalez and Christine Park-Gonzalez decided to create a full Mike & Chris collection.

The aim was to express the artistic inspiration and vocation in their collections. Chris, who’s from Queens, is a big fan of the art world, while Mike is a fashion photographer whose work brought him to New York.

Their collections feature eclectic raw materials, from leathers and wools to brass buttonholes… And now they’ve made a big career jump by creating a whole collection. They went back to their roots, the inspiration being New York urban culture in the eighties, where Christina grew up. Knitted leggins, wide trousers and skirts combine to create a chic urban look.

Nowadays you can see Cameron Diaz or Drew Barrymore wandering around with Mike & Chris designs, and why wouldn’t they? They can afford it and they look fabulous in them!

In case you were wondering the whereabouts of this cool brand you can go to an Intermix store around you, to Barneys or Ron Herman, Saks Fifth Avenue or Nordstrom Or simply check out their website Mike & Chris.
