Dubai, UAE, August 26, 2018: The 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.
