Fashion designer Michael Kors recently revealed in an interview with The Daily Beast that he wouldn’t be able to get married to his partner Lance Le Pere had it not been for the historic Stonewall Riots of 1959 that fanned the flames of the LGBTQ movement. In fact, he even proposed at the Stonewall Inn which is situated in Manhattan’s Greenwich Village the night that same-sex marriage was legalised in the city.
So to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the riots and Pride month, the brand has come out with the #MKGo Rainbow capsule line of ready-to-wear and accessories to spread the word about inclusivity and diversity. Anchored by ROYGBIV hues and stripes a.k.a the rainbow, the collection goes big on the joy factor of the clothes which range from 89 for a pair of flip-flops to $839 for a backpack. If sequinned T-shirts, star-spangled high tops make you smile and spark joy, then you get the point.
