For spring, the Michael Kors Collection ad campaign was photographed by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin. Shot on the grounds of a Beverly Hills estate, the campaign features models Ugbad Abdi and Rianne Van Rompaey. “My spring collection is a celebration of the best of American style,” said Michael Kors. “The Collection campaign focuses on a mix of ease and glamour that is inherently American, and the layers of sophistication, irreverence and romance found in the images complement that juxtaposition.” Crisply tailored separates and soft romantic dresses are featured. The global campaign breaks this month, with print ads running in spring issues worldwide. The images will also appear in digital outlets, as well as social media platforms and traditional outdoor media placement. — Lisa Lockwood
