Michael Kors: exclusive AW13 preview

Team ELLE road tests our fave pieces

There’s nothing quite like seeing a collection strut down the runway on the likes of Cara Delevingne and Karlie Kloss, then getting your hands on the pieces yourself.

That’s exactly what Team ELLE did yesterday, when our friends at Michael Kors invited us into their (swanky new) London showroom a day ahead of the rest of the UK press to take a sneak peek at the autumn/winter 2013 collection.

You know the one: all sleek lines, boxy jackets, ski goggle-style sunglasses and lashings of cobalt ‘n’ camo. Polished, sporty classics, perfect for navigating the urban jungle.

'You've got to be an athlete to deal with life in the city today,' Kors told ELLE backstage after the show in New York. 'I love the idea that you can have this urban polish but still be athletic.'

So do we – which is why, as well as picking our highlights from the both the Michael Kors mainline and Michael Michael Kors collections, we couldn’t resist dressing up and hitting the street for an impromptu photo shoot. You know, in the name of serious, investigative journalism.

Enjoy!
