MICHAEL KORS CAPSULE WAVES RAINBOW FLAG
The women’s and men’s range symbolizes service-based Pride-Month celebration.
As Pride Month 2019 gathers heat, brands are clamoring to wave their rainbow flags. One multinational corp that has seamlessly waded into the festivities is Michael Kors, which launched its MK Rainbow Capsule this month—an homage to both World Pride and the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall uprising.
As much a goldmine of parade-look contenders as a vessel of change, the rainbow-hued capsule, which includes pieces from the brand’s men’s and women’s lines, benefits God’s Love We Deliver, a New York-based nonprofit organization providing cooked meals and health services to those living with HIV/AIDS. 100% of proceeds from the #MKGO Rainbow t-shirt will go toward GLWD, a cause close to the brand’s namesake, a longtime habitué of both the city’s fashion and LGBT+ communities. “God’s Love We Deliver has always been near and dear to my heart. 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,” Kors said in a statement.
The launch coincides with the recent opening of the Michael Kors Soho flagship, located a few blocks from the GLWD headquarters. So whether you’re celebrating Pride Month by volunteering, parading or all that and then some, the MK Rainbow Capsule is sure to have you covered. Peep a selection below.
