Alistair Hinkins discusses collaborations, design, and manufacturing with MAPLE designer Austin McMahon

Lifestyle label MAPLE has established itself with a series of high-quality accessories born with love and a striking attention to detail. Made to last with its “quality and considered design,” the 2014-born label has grown to be a notable figure with its thoughtfully crafted jewelry and reputable collaborations.

Alistair Hinkins — a freelance fashion writer with a strong repertoire of content behind him — sits down with the brain behind the Canadian-rooted label: Austin McMahon.

"I think learning to create a culture around events or brands is what really sets one apart from another. MAPLE has now become the remix of all my influences over the years growing up in Alberta."

Hinkins’s insightful conversation with McMahon sheds light on some interesting details within the industry while fleshing out MAPLE’s much more personal story. Touching on subjects like his collaborations with BEAMS, his personal and professional relationships, and his rapid growth, the entire piece is a humbling yet enlightening experience.
