I’m continually surprised by the huge number of Michael Kors bags that I see women carrying in every city that I visit. One of the most recognizable bags from the line is the Michael Kors Hamilton, which has been issued in nearly countless colors, sized and materials. The version above may be the most exciting, though; like other designers, MK is always giving back and after the tragic earthquake in Japan, Michael decided to help.

MK debuted a limited edition Hamilton handbag in support of the Great East Japan Earthquake relief effort during Fashion’s Night out in Tokyo and to follow its success, the U.S. will launch this bag for a 24 hour period starting tomorrow, Monday January 22nd. The bag will be available only through a link from the Michael Kors facebook page and in select Michael Kors retail stores.


The designer will donate 100 percent of the proceeds from the sale of the bag to support relief efforts for the Great East Japan Earthquake via the Japanese Red Cross Society. While many only give a portion of proceeds to causes, I find it entirely commendable that Michael Kors will give 100%.

The bag is the coveted Hamilton in a deep berry-colored matte embossed python finish. A keychain is attached that will serve as a reminder of those in Japan with a series of MK logo and “Michael Hearts Japan” charms. Not only is this bag for a great cause, but it truly is a great looking bag. Check the Michael Kors facebook page tomorrow for more details.

    Beautiful! But too bad it’s pink……if all the proceeds are going to help Japan (which is quite generous and wonderful) I’d rather it were neon bright like the lights of Tokyo.

    Personally, though, I was distracted by one thing and one thing only,
    which was trying to guess how much the littany of crocodile pieces, from
    bags to jackets, would cost once they hit retail

    Nice bag, good cause.  I am impressed with Mr. Kors after seeing his interviews.  He’s clever.

    It’s awesome that 100% of the proceeds are going to the relief effort. It is indeed unusual.
