Michael Kors has reached a level of ubiquity that rivals the likes of Coach and Louis Vuitton. His rise to fame has been largely fuelled by his celebrity endorsements (check out the front row of any international red carpet event to spot an MK bag or two) and a strong presence on the eponymous Project Runway where his judgeship further elevated his brand to the mainstream.
The MK sale is a great place to pick up an affordable piece from the label. The designer has slashed the price of many of its most desirable bags this summer and one of its standout pieces is the Jet Set Large Leather Crossbody Bag which has seen its full retail price slashed to PS97.
The large tote bag is a perfect example of how the MK line welds simple materials with a dynamic aesthetic. Its tan leather is treated with Saffiano (originally patented by Prada) which creates a famous cross-hatch pattern and lends the bag its textured look. Adding to the effect is its clean boxed symmetry and external and internal zipped and slipped pockets, standing proud on four metal studs. This bag is the kind of item that can be used to harmonise an elegant black dress or a pair of jeans and a T-shirt for a more casual outing. It’s the kind of MK bag that works across seasons and looks as good with a pair of shorts as it does with a tailored workwear outfit. MK sale bag
