When Michael Kors went public in 2011, investors rushed to get their hands on the brand’s $398 crossbody tote bags, the kind of luxe accessory that makes you feel like a jet-setting CEO ducking into your private plane for a trip to Turks and Caicos. Kors quickly became the go-to for “jet-set luxury” and its accessories—including perfumes, shoes and watches—are worn by celebs like Jessica Alba and Gisele Bundchen. But as the designer’s famed collection expanded, and his purses appeared in department stores alongside Coach Outlet bags, shoppers began to snub the brand—a trend that deepened when the company began heavily discounting its products to combat weak North American sales.
The designer’s signature leather handbags are instantly recognizable with their infamous MK logo and jet-setting aesthetic, but there’s more to the line than style. The collection boasts practical bags that have enough room for your laptop and lunch, as well as evening-approved clutches and backpacks. It also carries styles in materials and textures including python, crocodile and water snake skin, as well as a softer fabric assortment such as quilted tweed and canvas.
With a slew of new Michael Kors bags available now at Macy’s—including this Selma messenger that typically lists for $448 and is coveted by celebrities such as Alessandra Ambrosio—there’s no better time to stock up on a purse for the summer. Whether you’re going on a romantic weekend getaway, a casual dinner with friends or a glam night out, a chic tote or crossbody bag will elevate every ensemble.michael kors bags on sale
