Michael Kors just launched #MKGO Rainbow capsule for MICHAEL Michael Kors Summer 2019.
Inspired by Pride and the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall uprising that launched the gay rights movement in the United States and around the world, #MKGO Rainbow celebrates inclusion, diversity and the vibrancy and vitality of the LGBTQ+ community.
Bright, optimistic hues and rainbow motifs lend energy and graphic appeal to classic silhouettes, casual-cool separates and signature logo accessories. Key products include a sequined T-shirt dress, star-speckled high-top sneakers, a rainbow-quilted Whitney shoulder bag and more.
“Pride is about celebrating your authentic self and remembering all the incredible people who came before us to get us where we are today,” says Michael Kors. “This capsule is about getting dressed with joy and celebrating each other.”
In support of the community and the principles that inspired #MKGO Rainbow, Kors has designed a special #MKGO Rainbow Pride T-shirt. For each of these shirts sold, Kors will donate 100 percent of profits to God’s Love We Deliver, a non-profit organization and longstanding pillar of the LGBTQ+ community that cooks and delivers 1.8 million meals annually to those too sick to shop or cook for themselves throughout the New York metropolitan area.
The designer has been personally involved with God’s Love for over 30 years. Founded in 1985, the non-profit was initially dedicated to serving those with HIV/AIDS. While God’s Love has expanded over the years to serve clients with other severe illnesses, serving those living with HIV/AIDS remains central to their mission. Today, 17 percent of their 7,200 clients are diagnosed with HIV.
“God’s Love We Deliver has always been near and dear to my heart,” says Kors. “During the 80s, when the HIV/AIDS epidemic was raging through New York City, they were one of the first organizations to be there for the gay community. It’s an honor to donate to them today through sales of the #MKGO Rainbow Pride T-shirt.”
Kors was also proud to participate in the Pride 2019 festivities in New York City. On 25 June, he sponsored God’s Love We Deliver’s 50th anniversary celebration of Pride at the historic Stonewall Inn, where the gay rights movement began. Then, on 30 June, he donated their #MKGO Rainbow Pride T-shirts to members of the God’s Love We Deliver float for the NYC Pride March, the largest commemoration and celebration of the LGBTQ+ community in history.
In the Philippines, Michael Kors is exclusively distributed by Stores Specialists Inc. and is located at Central Square in Bonifacio High Street Central, Greenbelt 5, Newport Mall, Power Plant Mall, Rustan’s Makati and Shangri-La Plaza Mall.
