This week Michael Kors has launched #MKGO Graffiti, the first in a series of limited-edition capsules from the brand. Inspired by 1980’s New York, Michael Kors’ new black-and-white graffiti print celebrates street art and its influence on fashion. The limited-edition print puts a graphic spin on jackets, shoes and bags this July.
“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.” – Michael Kors
To celebrate the launch, Kors teamed up with style arbiter Candy Pratts Price on a special window display that celebrates designer Michael Kors, his iconic aviators and the new graffiti product.
Pratts Price has been a fashion world fixture for over 40 years. Her career started at Charles Jourdan, where she spent 3 years designing the windows before being recruited by Bloomingdale’s president Martin Traub to be the Creative Director of all Bloomingdale’s window displays and storefronts. Since then she has also served as fashion director at Harper’s Bazaar, fashion director of accessories at Vogue, executive fashion director at Style.com, creative director at Vogue.com, and contributing editor at Departures.
The windows will be on display in the following stores: Rockefeller Center and Flatiron in New York City, Regent Street in London, Corso Vittorio Emanuele in Milan, Mandarin Gallery in Singapore, Jing’An Kerry Centre in Shanghai and Ginza in Japan.
