The campaign was shot by photographer Daniel Clavero and styled by Mel Ottenberg, editor-in-chief of cult pop magazine Interview. Launching at the end of November, the new Michael Kors x Ellesse capsule offers a vivid take on ski resort style. Evoking the bold attitude and confident cool of a day on the slopes, the capsule is emblazoned with a one-of-a-kind insignia that fuses Michael Kors’ iconic logo with Ellesse’s tennis-and ski-inspired one, the company said in a press release.
American fashion brand for apparel and accessories, Michael Kors, and luxe Italian sportswear brand, Ellesse, have teamed up for a special ski capsule. Fronted by Emily Ratajkowski, who starred in the collaboration’s launch, and model David Agbodji, the campaign’s chic apres-ski images bring the collection’s vibrant, sporty and glamorous designs to life.
Keeping with the fresh colour combinations of the first Michael Kors x Ellesse collaboration Ellesse’s signature palette of fiery oranges and reds is juxtaposed with classic shades of navy blue and crisp white. Colour-blocked pullovers, jackets and puffer vests pair with striped track pants, leggings, mittens and ribbed beanies to tap into classic ski style. Collab interpretations of Kors’ must-have Hudson backpack, Slater sling pack and Hudson tote are high-impact accessories with built-in versatility, ideal for on-the-go ease.
“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,” Michael Kors, said.
“Ellesse was born on the slopes. The Ellesse and Michael Kors collection combines the Italian flair of Ellesse with the glamour and luxe that is unique to the Michael Kors philosophy to create looks that work on the slopes and on the street—bringing effortless style and sharp tailoring to après ski,” Simon Breckon, brand director of Ellesse, said.
