What would you trade in a grand Baltic drive followed by a two-month trip to India for? Basically I believed for nothing. And then things just started to happen and I realized that I had taken up a project in the midst of summer in Hungary’s capital city of Budapest sacrificing my European and Asian travel adventures to bring back the old-school circus, the bucking bronco and some vintage Ford Mustangs for a night.
Italy’s rugged & refined fashion brand MCS dreamed big to make the impossible possible and gave Mustangs and circus, a wild horse from the rodeo, and a whole Western American lifestyle to people and all of that in the busiest mall in the heart of Budapest at WestEnd City Center. A Western party in WestEnd? Well, this discussion is for another day…

The youngest MCS store with a brand new concept opened its doors to the brand’s strong base of loyal customers, press and nr.1. bloggers with a mind-blowing party to celebrate a new milestone in the company’s history in a true heritage style. Those of you who don’t recall, the iconic fashion brand was born in the ‘70s as Marlboro Country Store, then changed their name to Marlboro Sportswear in ’84 and to Marlboro Classics in ’87. The rejuvenation of the brand in 2013 brought MCS as the new brand name in, along with a worldwide expansion from China to France and beyond.
Tradition meets style
Checked shirts and leather jackets for the ultimate Western lifestyle
Quality and durability – all that the born traveler needs
The grand opening party was more like when a friends’ get together turns out to be one memorable night-out that everyone keeps on talking about for a long-long time. Finely crafted mini-burgers & hot-dogs, brownies and waffles and the enticing beats of the New York born DJ Mahogany turned Budapest’s nightlife a bit of American.
