Esteemed producer and DJ Nic Fanciulli has teamed up with long-time friend and British designer Marc Jacques Burton to create a specially crafted new fashion range. Each design is limited to fifteen pieces, numbered by hand.
Making his name for his hand-designed jackets, Marc Jacques Burton ’s garments are crafted under the expert eye of Italian artisans and favoured by the likes of Migos, Zayn Malik, Gigi Hadid, Winnie Harlow and Usain Bolt. A name synonymous with avant-garde designs, exquisite craftsmanship and relentless attention to detail, the ‘My Heart x MJB (Marc Jacques Burton)’ range was inspired by Nic’s ‘My Heart’ album, with Marc explaining the details behind the team-up.
“Nic and I have always supported each other, we wanted to create a capsule collection that combined our worlds of music, art and design. Together, we designed and incorporated my art into Nic’s ‘My Heart’ album artwork. We then created pieces to show off our art that Nic could both perform in live and also travel in. We sourced the best Italian materials and have produced all in very limited quantities in Italy.” – Marc Jacques Burton
Grammy-nominated producer Nic Fanciulli’s career has spanned two decades at the forefront of the UK underground scene. Also, the founder of house and techno label Saved Records and boutique festival The Social, Fanciulli is a truly multifaceted artist.
Nic released his debut album ‘My Heart’ in October of 2017; an album ten years in the making which featured collaborations with the likes of Damon Albarn, Audion, Eagles & Butterflies and Guy Gerber. The anatomical heart from the LP artwork has been reimagined for the collaboration.
“Marc and I have been friends for a long time. We finally decided to create something that’s representative of both brands. It’s really limited, with just 15 pieces of each design, but I’m into the idea of scarcity in a world where everything is so readily available. There are a lot of parallels between music and fashion, and it’s been a lot of fun exploring them with Marc.” – Nic Fanciulli
The collection is available to order exclusively by email at firstname.lastname@example.org and a limited run of MJB (Marc Jacques Burton) physical ‘My Heart’ CDs will be on sale at the launch event.
