Michael Kors Launches New ’80s Inspired Capsule Collection: #MKGO Graffiti
Earlier this month, Michael Kors unveiled a new womenswear capsule collection. The bold monochromatic collection is the first in a series of limited-edition capsules from Michael Kors. Drawing inspiration from the ‘80s art scene in New York, the designer decided to put a graphic spin on his jackets, shoes, and bags by decorating the pieces with eye-catching street style inspired prints.
“I started my company in 1981, at a time when uptown and downtown were really colliding. Uptown girls partied downtown at the Mudd Club and Club 57. Artists like Fab 5 Freddy and Jean-Michel Basquiat showed their work at PS 1, and yet you’d still be just as likely to find their signatures on the side of a building in the LES or your subway car. Today, that mix of high/low is everything.” said Michael Kors
To take the celebration of the newest collection to the next level Michael Kors teamed up with Candy Pratts Price, who has served as fashion director at Harper’s Bazaar, Vogue, and Style.com, to create special window displays for select locations. These Instagrammable displays feature a floor-to-ceiling screen print of Michael in his aviators, rotating mannequins wearing the graffiti product while snapping selfies of themselves in front of the backdrop.
The new capsule collection is available at Michael Kors stores Canada-wide. Take a look at the lookbook and a few of our favourite pieces below:
