Fall 2018: New takes on the Whitney Bag
T he Whitney, introduced this past summer, has become the newest iconic handbag from MICHAEL Michael Kors. Designed as a 24/7, work-to-weekend bag, the Whitney combines a sophisticated silhouette with on-the-go versatility. The subtle but distinctive “M” shape on the front of the bag nods to the designer’s initial, a letter he’s been sketching since he was a child. The bag also features a sleek, distinctive push-lock fastening with pyramid stud detailing. Now, for the fall fashion season, Michael Kors introduces new luxe additions to the Whitney family.
A NEW SILHOUETTE
The Whitney was originally introduced in three polished shapes – the sleek shoulder bag, the winged satchel and the roomy tote bag. This season, a new backpack silhouette will join the Whitney lineup.
…AND NEW STANDOUT DETAILS
The Quilted Whitney: It’s all about tactile polish for the quilted Whitney, which comes in two glossy leather options – smooth and crinkled – and is finished with quilted stitching.
The Mixed-Media Whitney: Make a statement with the mixed-media Whitney, designed in a mix of suede and snake-embossed leather. The quilted stitching is outlined with geometric studs for added texture.
The Tri-Colour Whitney: 1-2-3 chic: this iteration features a tri-colour design for a graphic spin on the sophisticated style. It comes in a velvet and leather combination as well as a leather-only style.
The Whitney Bag launches in Michael Kors stores and online, from Fall 2018
