In 2010 , Mckenzie Liautaud launched a capsule collection of Men’s accessories including bespoke bow ties and hand finished pocket squares using recycled fabrics embellished with hardware, crystals and metal findings. After the success of the men's collection, Mckenzie introduced Women’s jewelry. His first collection 'Tribal Disruption' examined the relationship between tribal style & western design.
The Haitian American designer draws inspiration from his travels around the globe finding the heartbeat of each collection through inspiration he discovers along the way -- from Dubai to Mykonos, Milan to Paris, and Mexico to Morocco -- Mckenzie infuses each season with international style. He's created capsule collections and has collaborated with designers Pyer Moss, Donna Karan and La Ligne.
Liautaud has been touted as "One to watch" and has been featured in publications including NY Times,Town & Country, WWD , W Magazine, Cosmopolitan, Forbes, Numero , Elle & Black Enterprise . His multicultural style has caught the attention of stylish celebrities including Lizzo , Lil Nas , Sarah Jessica Parker , Billy Porter, Rosario Dawson , Shakira and Maluma.
Mckenzie's goal is to bring balance and harmony to the world as he builds a conscious brand -- each Mckenzie Liautaud piece is beautifully handcrafted using ethically sourced precious and semi-precious materials.
