NEW YORK — Michael Kors is tapping into the iconic spirit of an Italian summer, bringing the luxury of the Michael Kors collection to the Amalfi Coast and Capri. The designer, who has long been captivated by the magic of Capri, has created a limited-edition capsule collection that will only be sold on the island at Cabana Capri and nearby Amalfi at the iconic Hotel Santa Caterina.
The capsule collection reflects the luminous beauty, timeless and effortless luxury of an Italian summer getaway. It features ocelot-print swimwear and sarongs, as well as python-embossed leather bracelets, all designed for the languid luxury of island life. The special capsule, along with a selection of bags, ready-to-wear and accessories from the Michael Kors Spring/Summer 2022 collection, is available in a pop-up shop at the renowned Hotel Santa Caterina in Amalfi.
Continuing the Italian celebration, and to toast the exciting news that the Michael Kors collection will be sold by Italian luxury retailer LuisaViaRoma from July this year, the brand was the sole sponsor of the annual LuisaViaRoma gala on July 30th, which took place at the Certosa di San Giacomo in Capri.
Prior to the gala, the brand set up an exclusive VIP showroom at the Teatro Grand Hotel Quisisana in Capri. Guests were able to try on pieces from the Michael Kors Spring/Summer 2022 and Fall/Winter 2022 collection for the party. The brand joined forces with Vanity Fair Italy for an invite-only poolside cocktail party at Quisisana.
