Last May, the Michael Kors x ellesse capsule was released, celebrating the retro athleisure of the 70s. As the year draws to a close in a few days, here is the new collab between the two partners. This time around, the new capsule focuses on bold styles designed for both the snowy slopes and the streets.
Inspired by vintage ski styles, the collection offers timeless, cool and functional pieces in ellesse‘s signature palette of fiery oranges and reds, paired with classic Michael Kors shades of navy and crisp white.
Sweaters, jackets, down jackets in contrasting colors, sweatpants, leggings, mittens, striped ribbed hats, as well as the Hudson backpack, Slater shoulder bag and Hudson tote bag were all on hand. As in the first capsule released a few months earlier, the pieces are adorned with the novel insignia that fuses the Michael Kors’s logo with ellesse’s tennis and ski inspired logo.
“Ellesse is a trailblazer in bringing high style to the world of ski, and I’ve always designed clothing and accessories that combine glamour and ease. I’m thrilled with the capsule of luxe, glamorous sportswear that we’ve collaborated on – it works perfectly whether you’re at the ski lodge or hitting the city streets,” said Michael Kors.
For the launch of the capsule, the two partners enlisted model and actress Emily Ratajkowski and model David Agbodji. The campaign was photographed by Daniel Clavero in New York and styled by Mel Ottenberg, editor in chief of Interview.
