The collection features clothing and accessories for girls aged 4 to 14. It will be sold globally through Michael Kors digital flagships across North America, Europe and Asia, wholesale partners such as Galeries Lafayette, Zalando, Ounass and Salam Stores and through CWF distribution points.

The spring delivery is inspired by the Michael Michael Kors women’s assortment and includes “sport-chic activewear” featuring the MK logo. The capsule has classic separates such as sleeveless jersey dresses and fleece skirts with branded jacquard taping and playful floral dresses and skirts. Kors’ allover signature print is showcased throughout the offering, including on swimwear and backpacks. The collection is rounded out with accessories such as heart-shaped crossbody bags and a pink tote.
