Michael Kors Paris boutiques are glowing with red and gold for the Lunar New Year.
Yes – 2017 is the Year of the Rooster. A time when all our thoughts turn to the gifts we give, the gifts we receive and one special gift - the one we promise ourselves.
And in the fashion world, where a handbag is your ultimate accessory, there’s simply no question - a new handbag is my choice for my very own Lunar New Year gift.
Nobody celebrates the Chinese holiday season with such fun and creativity like Michael Kors. In their two Paris boutiques there’s a festive atmosphere. Between January 23 and February 2nd, every customer who makes a purchase in the Michael Kors Saint Honoré and Le Marais boutiques will have the chance to pick a lucky red envelop with a special treat inside.
There’s more! All customers visiting the Saint Honoré boutique from January 27th to the 29th will be offered the opportunity to create a beautiful paper rooster or feather token inspired by the Michael Kors Lunar New Year campaign. So go in store for the chance to take part in the paper craft workshop. No bookings are required but places are limited.
I’ve fallen in love with six pieces from the Lunar New Year collection. Some are ‘cherry’ coloured, the perfect shade of red to flatter your skin - and of course ‘gold’, because it carries the aura of success and it’s one of the lucky colours in the Year of the Rooster.
So come on my journey to Michael Kors - because while we can all shop online, there’s nothing like visiting a boutique when you have the luxury of time to discover this festive collection.
Michael Kors Scout Medium Leather Camera Bag in Cherry €350
It’s as chic as a front row seat at fashion week. It’s the newest silhouette in the collection and celebrates our nostalgia for vintage camera bags. Much more than just a pretty face - Michael Kors had Fuji’s Instax Mini in mind when he designed the bag. But you don’t need a camera to sling this cutie over your shoulder. Those side pockets are ready for your lipstick, coin purse or phone.
Michael Kors Ginny Medium Leather Crossbody in Cherry €195
You’re a practical girl who appreciates the freedom and functionality of the ‘Messenger’ bag. You like to wear bags that are big on style and small in size while they still hold everything you need and allow you to be hands-free. The swing of the bag lets admirers to check out the details like the pretty leather tassel and the chain-leather handle.
Michael Kors Mercer Large Metallic Leather Tote in Pale Gold €350
The ultimate statement bag that symbolizes you have status. Is it a business meeting or cocktails in a bar after work? Whatever your date, this roomy tote is tailored, classy and large enough to carry your work files. When you wear on your arm it shows off the bag and tells the world who you are. The golden colour simply gleams.
Michael Kors Jet Set Large Metallic Leather Crossbody Clutch in Pale Gold €175
When a clutch doubles as a crossbody you have a special bonus: two bags in one. It’s almost a non-negotiable item in any wardrobe since it promises you can deal with any situation. It’s the bag you can wear on the run to the office or over the weekend and then remove the handle for a party when you need a minimalist bag that reflects your style.
Michael Kors Fur Key Chain in Cherry €60
Cute, furry and lovable, this fur key chain is a way of saying who you are without having to speak! It shows off the bag you are carrying and signals you’ve got a sense of fun. Fasten it to your handbag, tote or backpack to give any bag a whole lot more charm. I vote this as the perfect holiday gift.
Michael Kors Mercer Large Leather Smartphone Wristlet in Cherry €110
When trends like a phone case become staples you know this is a top priority. It’s designed for a girl who is travelling light. So when you need a bag but can carry little more than your phone, lipstick gloss and credit cards think of this clutch-with-handle as a new classic. It’s one step up from not carrying a bag and unless you have a personal chauffeur, you need it.
Come and celebrate Chinese New Year with Michael Kors in Paris - from January 23 to February 2 - and I wish you good luck when you receive your lucky red envelope and a special treat with any purchase.
