Michael Kors has unveiled its new Michael Kors Collection fall campaign that was photographed by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin. The ads were styled by Paul Cavaco. Shot inside a classic New York mansion, the campaign features model Rianne Van Rompaey and will break July 5 in British Vogue. It will also appear in fall issues worldwide. “For fall, we wanted to capture the eclectic glamour of the runway collection. The Michael Kors Collection campaign offers an inside peek into the lives of today’s luxury jet setters. The rich layers of private life and romance found in the images complement the mood, chic and drama of our fall collection,” Michael Kors said. — Lisa Lockwood
