Michael Kors toasts Ellesse collaboration with Emily Ratajkowski – WWD

Michael Kors aimed high for its collaboration launch party with Ellesse on Thursday night. The brands have brought together the MK and Ellesse logos for a 24-piece capsule collection, which was worn by many attendees during the launch event at Bar SixtyFive in the Rainbow Room. Guests including Amelia Gray Hamlin, Priah Ferguson, Wolftyla, Batsheva Hay, Ezra J. William, Jessica Wang and James Turlington took the elevator to the 65th floor where they were treated to stunning views of Manhattan. A step-and-repeat was supported by views of Central Park (and Billionaire’s Row).

Outside on the patio, campaign face and event presenter Emily Ratajkowski joined the crowd for the best selfie opportunities.

Brooklyn rapper Jay Critch, who appears in the campaign video and provided a music track for the campaign video, arrived just before sunset wearing a track jacket from the collection.

“My agency, Next Models, put me in touch with the project, kudos to them,” Critch said. “It was great to see myself in the campaign because it’s the first one I’m taking part in and I think everything came together perfectly and it means a lot that my song is the soundtrack to the release.”

Lucky new fans: Critch is returning to the studio with plans to release more music soon.

“Right now I’m working on my next project, which will be released this summer, so I’ve been busy putting it together,” he said, adding, “This one will be different.”
