Michael Kors Celebrates Spring in Palm Beach



To toast the temperatures rising, Michael Kors jetsetted to Palm Beach, Florida, to host a charity luncheon with the Woman’s Board of The Boys’ Club of New York, showcasing the Spring 2015 Collection. Boasting embroidered blooms, oversized flower prints and nods to the nautical, the clothes were at home in a location that’s always hot and haute.

Among the glamorous invitees at the table were sisters Laura and Danielle Kosann of The New Potato blog (pictured above with Michael Kors). Whether they’re writing about their culinary experiences, profiling celebrities or musing over must-have items, they do so with their signature sense of style and sass. In between courses, they talked about must-see local hot spots, dream guest lists and guilty pleasures.

Q: You have 48 hours in Palm Beach. What’s on your to-do and to-eat list?
“To do: The Breakers, Mar-a-Lago, shopping, galleries and antiques on Worth Avenue—also, any beach we can find! To eat: Ta-boo, Buccan and Surfside Diner.”
Q: What is your favorite look from the Michael Kors Spring 2015 Collection and where would you like to wear it?
Laura: “The suede khaki skirt and top and I would love to wear it on a safari.”
Danielle: “The tulle skirt with yellow flowers and I would love to wear it to dinner on the Amalfi Coast overlooking the ocean.”
Q: What Spring 2015 trend are you most excited about wearing?
“We're loving the seventies trend right now and are so excited to bring it back this season.”
In five words or less, describe each other’s personal style…
Laura on Danielle: “Minimal and clean with an edge.”
Danielle on Laura: “Eclectic, sophisticated and chic.”
Q: What do you think is the recipe for hosting a chic lunch?
“The perfect light dish that will satisfy your guests without making them too full, beautiful flowers and décor and great company.”
Q: Who are the five famous people you’d invite to your dream lunch and why?
“Diana Vreeland because she was so inspiring and would no doubt have amazing stories to tell. Lucille Ball, Amy Poehler and Tina Fey so we could laugh the entire time. And Larry David, because we'd love to see him be the only man at a party.”
Guilty pleasure…
“Wine, cheese and frozen gummy bears.”
