For FW 2016 MAC continuous with the theme of "Characters of Modern Society". Elegant sportiveness, modern classicism and a casual lifestyle as well as straightforwardness, sustainability and refined craftsmanship are the key words to describe the new collection. A thrilling and skillful play full of contracts can be found. The first of the three collection themes is the devoted to elegant sportswear – the “Functional Businessmen”. At first glance it is a sportive and functional look which, however is chic and suitable for the office, even with white trainers. Straight lines, purism and monochrome styles define the look. Details such as drawcord at the waistband, slim cuffs at the hem, darts or discreet cargo components give the trousers a sportive touch. Technical textiles and special functions or extra benefits remain indispensable this season. Heat-regulating Thermolite denims and flats are included in the collections as well as the usage of nanotechnology or multifunctional hybrid fabrics  Wool looks receive a more sportive interpretation. The main highlights are the brand-new highly innovative super stretch denim “Hyperlfex” as well as the top seller “Jog’n Jeans”.  The second theme is the “Cultural Traveler”. It stands out for its casual, authentic and suitable looks. The inspiration was received from punk and goth elements in the 1970s. Ethno and folklore elements plus gaucho and cowboy themes can be found as well as military components in the form of cargo and zip details. MAC has translated these trends on authentic, grainy denims in destroyed looks or used and repaired effects. Fabrics involved are the best vintage denim from Italy as well as recycled denim. For flats the materials used are rather sportive – washed, used, PPT-dyed or equipped with oil-washed effects. Prints and minimalist looks highlight the items. Washed corduroy, used effects, textured flats and material mix details are also included. Tapered styles, pipes and biker models plus slim silhouettes make for a coherent overall picture. The last theme is the “Classical Metropolitan”. Here, the focus is placed on modern classicism offering an urban, trendy but still clean look. High-quality sartorial workmanship and a British touch complete the picture. Wool looks in e.g. herringbone, Prince of Wales checks and stripes as well as high-quality jacquards can be found. Clean raw denims in dark washes and on trendy tapered styles are presented next to slim silhouettes. A new cut is “Tim” with wide, straight legs. Denims with tone-on-tone stitching’s radiate a Scandinavian look. Main colors are olive, khaki, dark brown, grey and various blue shades.
