MadeMe Collection by Erin McGee!

We love to hear about the ladies doing their thing!! Erin McGee one of the designers behind the world famous skate/streetwear brand Supreme is stepping out on her own with her line, MadeMe. Her debut collection, “First to Fall”, is scheduled to hit stores this Fall. We can expect to see super soft tees, two styles of denim jeans, stylized leather bomber jackets and leggings. The collection “fuses together the comfortable and confrontational nature of streetwear with the confidence and sex appeal of a women”. Here first collection is described as:

The debut collection, “First to Fall? was inspired by America’s obsession with celebrity. The literal translation of our unhealthy fascination with celebrity is expressed through MadeMe’s line of super soft t-shirts with screen-printed graphics.

“We all grew up worshipping timeless icons, aspiring to copy their style and holding them up to a standard that they could do no wrong. However, when celebrities act like humans we attack their humanity through intense media scrutiny.? The collection’s premier tee is adorned with an airbrushed photo of Marilyn Monroe taken by Bert Stern during her last photo shoot, for Vogue, six weeks before her death. Other prints include the “Paris is Burning? tee, named after a documentary film chronicling the New York’s gay club culture. Created from a collage of New York Post headlines over a six-month period illustrating America’s infatuation with celebrity culture. Rounding out the collection is the “Virgin Tee? and the “Lips Tee? – both of which are purely honoring Magee’s main inspiration – Madonna.

The two styles of jeans are called the “Up-Hi” and the “Down-lo”. The “Up-Hi Jean” is made of a lighter weight denim, wider leg and contoured waist and hips. The “Down-lo Jean” is compared to a men’s pair of 501’s but designed for the ladies! I can’t tell you how happy that makes me, I have tried many times to get “that look” that guys get in a pair of 501’s…they just aren’t made for the curves of a womens body…and it sounds like MadeMe as answered my prayers!!!



Read about McGee’s inspiration behind MadeMe:

The concept behind MadeMe came directly from Magee’s feeling of emptiness at a time when nothing excited her in the marketplace. “I knew it was time to start my own brand when I became severely bored by what I was seeing in the streets.? Hence the logo, a broken heart designed with two letter ‘M’s’ side-by-side. The broken heart is not only a reaction to the lack of innovative women’s street style, but also a reaction to the void of today’s American pop-culture. “I came to New York when I was seventeen to follow the Lower East Side definition of creative, cool – Madonna, Keith Haring and Grace Jones drew me to New York, now I am here and it is time for me to make my mark.? Magee’s fashion inspirations to create this collection include Vivienne Westwood, who was the first to make the screen printed tee a phenomenon; Balenciaga and Halston, who both use masculinity in a very powerful, sexy way!

We look forward to watching this brand grow and can’t wait to get down in some “Down-lo’s! Much love and success to Erin and MadeMe!
