The Perfect Mix
The German fashion label was founded in Italy in 1973 by Helmut Schlotterer. The style of Marc Cain clothes is sporty, elegant, simplistic, but still sophisticated. The company’s headquarters are now located at Bodelshausen near Tübingen, and Katrin Veit has been the head designer since 1976. The company’s trademarks are knitwear designs in all possible variations, and elaborate textile prints.
The history of the Marc Cain company
The name Marc Cain came from one of Schlotterer’s industry peer, who was Canadian. Schlotterer chose this name, as it has a nice international sound to it. With the permission of his colleague, of course. Schlotterer began producing his designs in Italy. It was a very adventurous beginning; with little start capital and only an air mattress to sleep on, Schlotterer travelled around Italy in search of suitable production sites. He actually wanted to stay in Italy forever, but when his father’s knitwear company was threatened with bankruptcy, he relocated a part of the production operations to the Swabian province. With innovative machinery, he produced modern patterns and fabrics that reflected the zeitgeist. Unlike many other companies, the Marc Cain company’s manufacturing facilities aren’t located in another country; they are still in Germany. The brand’s yarn is produced in Italy, so that even in Bodenhausen in Swabia, you can still find the Italian flair.
The Marc Cain Look
The Marc Cain look comprises a combination of different individual pieces. These pieces appear to clash and create tension at first glance, but in their entirety they actually create an image of unity.
The most important factor for the company is the particularly high quality processing of the clothing. Mark Cain knitwear is especially popular in Asia. Nowadays, Marc Cain also offers an extensive product range, including clothing, Marc Cain bags and Marc Cain accessories.
