Michael Kors has released its new fall 2021 ad campaigns for MICHAEL Michael Kors and Michael Kors Mens, starring Bella Hadid, Cindy Bruna, and Geron McKinley.

The campaign is a continuation of the brand’s 2021 theme, “the eye has to travel,” a line borrowed from celebrated editor and fashion icon Diana Vreeland. While spring focused on dreaming and summer on escape, the fall 2021 campaign is all about adventure, discovery, and reconnecting with friends.

Shot in Brooklyn and Queens by photographer Sean Thomas and video director Shane Sigler, the campaign captures Bella Hadid and friends meeting up and joyfully journeying across the boroughs for fun, much-missed experiences—from walking the Brooklyn Bridge and biking the boardwalk to taking a moped ride in Long Island City and toasting on a fabulous rooftop.

The campaign highlights a versatile range of chic dresses and casual separates in a neutral palette of camel, ivory, and moss green. Outerwear is a major focus, with the campaign featuring everything from a classic puffer to a tailored wool-blend coat. Key handbags for the season include the new Karlie and Lina bags, as well as the Hamilton Legacy satchel in Signature print and croc-embossed leather. For men, urban essentials like oversized outerwear and Signature print backpacks with graphic stripes are must-haves for fall.

“As life starts getting back to normal, I think everyone is looking forward to venturing out and exploring,” said Kors. “For fall we’re taking our fans on a journey just outside of Manhattan and reminding them of all the things we’ve missed over the past year and half. You can feel the energy and excitement of a fresh start in the air.”
