NEW YORK February 4, 2019 — Michael Kors announces the launch of his new Spring 2019 MICHAEL Michael Kors ad campaign starring supermodel Bella Hadid shot by the legendary photographer David Sims.
Heralding a bold new direction for the iconic luxury fashion brand, the campaign and collection – shot in a studio in Kors’ pulsating birthplace of New York – is inspired by the speed, energy and optimism of today’s global lifestyle.
Starring supermodel of the moment Bella Hadid the campaign takes the timeless allure of the brands’ DNA and translates it into a dynamic, highly-contemporary, street-inspired, fast moving visual feast for the modern jet-setter.
“Bella Hadid is the quintessential modern jet-setter,” says Michael Kors. “She is plugged-in, adventurous and on the go 24/7.”
Offering a fresh take on the 21st century wardrobe the ready to wear collection reflects the lighting fast pace of life and newfound desire for an arsenal that is elevated yet totally versatile. Juxtaposing masculine and feminine, high glamour with a street edge, camo printed dresses and anoraks, chic black athleisure teamed with sneakers, utilitarian khaki cargos, sexy bodysuits and bikinis and dramatic denim on denim capture the jet setting spirit. While lashings of gold plated bracelets from the Michael Kors Mercer Link collection and the latest Michael Kors Access Smartwatch add to the IT factor.
Complementing the take-you-anywhere energy of the collection, classic totes, backpacks and shoulder bags featuring the iconic Michael Kors signature have been reimagined in cool contemporary shapes. And meet Cece. Making her debut for Spring 2019, and destined to be the hero accessory of the season, the structured rectangle handbag features chic curved flap closure and heritage hardware including trunk-inspired pinch lock, leather-wrapped key charm, chain-link handle and detachable chain-and-leather strap to add that all important touch of glamour to the street-inspired styles.
The global campaign will debut in February, with print ads running in spring issues worldwide. The images will also appear in digital outlets, as well as on social media platforms and in traditional outdoor media placements.
