Spring 2019

Conversation Starters

“I wanted all of the accessories to be functional and utilitarian but also full of joy—embroidery and ruffles on handbags, fringes that fly and lots of beautiful appliqués.”

— MICHAEL KORS
WEARABLE ART

Brilliantly hued leather totes spotlighting custom creations from artist Christina Zimpel are the season’s chicest conversation-starters. Zimpel’s sunny, optimistic artwork also provided the backdrop for the Spring 2019 runway show at Pier 17.

SNAKE CHARMER

The Bancroft gets an exotic update and artisanal touch with colorful, hand-painted daisies on luxe python. Works like a charm.

LIFE AQUATIC

The season’s aquatic motifs take center stage in mini metallic brocade bags embellished with starfish- and seashell-shaped hardware. Small on size, big on charm.

FRINGE BENEFITS

Fringe is always in. The season’s leather and suede fringe bags channel easy glamour with bohemian spirit.

TROPICS BOUND

In boldly saturated calf leather with textural appliqué, the signature MK Beach Club totes are named after some of Michael’s favorite places—Capri, Malibu, St. Tropez—and spacious enough to fit a towel and bikini. Just add sunshine.

FULL BLOOM

Romantic florals are updated for spring, with painterly prints in vivid, mood-lifting colors imbuing a playful spirit. Crafted in silk twill with leather trim, this tote has a languid shape and lightweight functionality—making it the perfect travel companion.
