As if I needed another reason to love Michael Kors, this week I discovered that his new Spring 2012 collection was inspired by Singita Lebombo Lodge in Kruger National Park, South Africa. This is very special to me, because just over two years ago, I spent my honeymoon at Singita. Singita’s South African Game Reserves are comprised of five lodges: Ebony, Boulders (were I stayed,) Castleton, Lebombo (where Kors stayed) and Sweni. They are located in the Sabi Sand Reserves and Kruger National Park, which is known for its beauty and the likelihood of spotting the ‘Big 5.’ I must say that my experience with Singita was beyond all expectations. I cannot emphasize enough how life-changing my safari experience truly was. We were lucky enough to spot the big 5 plus so much more.
MK described Singita as “his favorite escape in the world,” which I can completely agree with. He stayed at Lebombo three times and then translated his experience through his work. Just viewing the rich colors of his collection gave me flashbacks to such an incredible time in my life. Kors describes his collection as “Afri-luxe” and a “rustic modernism of Lebombo Lodge.”
First, Here are some images of Michael Kors Spring 2012 Collection:
I took over 800 pictures on my honeymoon, but here are a couple of our suite and a few other faves.
One of my favorite designers of all time is Michael Kors. He has been in the biz for over 30 years and his experience shows through in his designs. Everything he sends down the runway is chic, fresh, yet very wearable.
Here are some of my favorites from his Ready-to-wear collection:
I LOVE his more affordable Michael by Michael Kors line too….
Celebs love Michael Kors too…
