Michael Kors launches its new Graffiti Capsule Collection
May 8, 2018: Fashion brand Michael Kors has announced an upcoming capsule collection featuring an original logo graffiti print.
Created in-house, the logo graffiti is inspired by the bold, stylized tagging that dominated New York City in the early ‘80s. Rendered in graphic black and white, this ‘grayscale’ collection is a celebration of both street art and the brand’s home city, as well as a nod to today’s street-influenced fashion.
“I started my company in 1981, at a time when uptown and downtown were really colliding,” says Michael Kors. “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.”
The graffiti capsule collection will be available in Michael Kors stores worldwide from July 2018.
