One of the thrills of travelling is being able to say “Oh, this? I picked it up at a little place in Bali.” whenever someone asks where your artisanal leather handbag is from. It’s the ultimate humblebrag. What’s more, it dramatically reduces the chances of you showing up to a party wearing the same thing as someone else.
But what about when it comes to designer? It’s hard to pull the I-picked-it-up-somewhere-remote card when chances are the brand is stocked online or in most major cities. So imagine our excitement when we heard that DFS and T Galleria by DFS stores are stocking an exclusive Michael Kors collection this September.
That’s right. The Michael Kors x DFS collection features 14 women’s and men’s styles, including ready-to-wear, accessories, sunglasses and watches, as well as an edition of the Michael Kors Mercer bag.
This isn’t the first time that the luxury travel retailer has collaborated with Michael Kors. Speaking about the partnership, Chairman and CEO of Michael Kors, John D. Idol notes: “We are thrilled to partner with DFS once again to bring Michael Kors’ signature take on luxury to travellers worldwide. The collection speaks to the desires of our customers today and reflects the style and sophistication that Michael Kors brings to the well-traveled life.”
To celebrate this jet-set lifestyle, DFS and Michael Kors have created a unique augmented reality and virtual reality in-store experience, transporting clients to DFS locations around the world. Available at six T Galleria by DFS locations across Hong Kong, Macau, Singapore and Hawaii, guests can compete in the video games and enter a prize draw for the chance to win a trip to New York City.
To top it all off, customers can capture the experience using an augmented reality Michael Kors x DFS filter to share on their social media profiles. Don’t forget to tag @PretAirporter so we can live vicariously through your travels too!
