Spring Summer 2014 Collection
For the new Autumn / Winter 2014 collection, Michael Kors celebrates the revival of women's style before winter. Through this collection, the natural beauty of the country is matched with city style for a very subtle Hippie Chic yet elegant feel. The fringes and embellished suede are in the spotlight and the Cowgirl spirit, straight from Wild West, is also remembered. Colours such as purple, blue and brown are matched with saffiano leather, an iconic element of the fashion house. A trend setter, Michael Kors brings us the bucket bag from the Jules Drawstring line and offers the modern woman a new it-bag that is both stylish and functional. Houndstooth and camouflage are waiting for you and will surely set the tone for the season. Throughout the collection, Michael Kors succeeds in reinventing the timeless brands’ codes such as the monogram signature padlock and logoed charm.
