Michael Kors Is Coming To Town…
...and he's bringing a Singapore-only capsule collection along with him! Here's how you can get your hands on it in time for the holidays.| November 15, 2016
Gift options are aplenty, but those who truly win the holiday season are the ones who give truly thoughtful gifts, especially those that don’t come by easy. It shows the effort it took to hunt it down, the work, sweat and tears that went into it. You know – limited editions, personalisations, customisations, one-of-a-kinds, that sort of thing. Now, if you’ve got that one bag-obsessed or Michael Kors-obsessed (or both!) person in your life, listen up.
For the holiday season, the all-American designer is releasing a limited edition capsule collection inspired by and created for Singapore. That’s right, good ol’ Singapore! Our tiny little red dot of a home! Drawing from national icons such as the island’s affinity with red, the four-piece collection comprises a mini backpack, a handy cross-body and a wristlet. If you want something that’ll let you go hands-free this party season, these little guys are what the doctor ordered.
The capsule collection also features a six-piece leather sticker pack to personalise them all. And we have to say – the stickers are so Singaporean that they’re actually kind of adorable. There’s one inspired by our national love of chili crab, for instance. We’re assuming the sunglasses are a reference to our ridiculous equatorial heat because Singapore = HOT. Also, take note – everything is limited edition. EVERYTHING. Complete with a “limited edition” plaque and all. (Translation: If you want a piece of the collection, you better move it. Run, don’t walk.)
And, about the title of this post – yes, it is a wink-wink reference to the coming Christmas season, but it is also because Michael Kors is actually coming to town. We’re hilarious! The designer will be here this week to officially open the doors to his Mandarin Gallery boutique – the largest in Southeast Asia to date – and to launch the Singapore-only capsule collection. It is also the first Michael Kors boutique in Singapore to carry the menswear collection. Now, who’s excited? We know we are. (Before you head to the new space, check out our mini interview with the designer himself back in July at New York Fashion Week here.)
