MARC JACQUES BURTON Rock the casbah
Marc Jacques Burton conjures a rock'n'roll fantasy to create a wardrobe made for men – and women! – living a life free of gender barriers, at its fullest, fastest, the 21st century the James Dean way.
Scratched denim jackets, worn out leather, ripped, torn, distressed t-shirts, each piece is born from the capable hands of Burton himself in London, before being personalized and reworked by Italian craftsmen. Painted, handworked, enhanced with details, such as « MJB » signed buttons, drawings and texts – « be yourself », « give me space » on the backs and sleeves – referencing rock and arty codes, from the Forever 27 Club to Jean-Michel Basquiat, for rebel souls on and off stage.
Some of MJB’s creations are made in restrained quantities, the black Leonardo leather jacket for example, with its double zippers and with details on the chest. Only 15 units were created, 3 of them are available at Leclaireur Champs Elysées.
MJB has found its way into the heart – and closet – of countless celebrities, amongst them are Noomi Rapace, David Guetta, Will.I.Am, rappers Migos, and supermodels Gigi Hadid and Winnie Harlow.
