Designer Michael Kors is redefining sexy with his new fragrance, Sexy Ruby. Launching the scent at London’s Tate Modern on Thursday night, the crowd was filled with influencers and muses ranging from Sofie Valkiers, Bruna Tenor, Chantal Trujillo, and Peony Lim to Martha Hunt, Soo Joo Park, Edita Vilkeviciute, and Serayah. Sexy Ruby is a combination of juicy raspberry and apricot with the fresh notes of rose petal and exotic Indian jasmine sambac. It gets its warm, luxurious finish from cashmere woods.
For its marketing, the designer decided to forgo his signature jet-set campaign in favor of something more sensual, sexy, and powerful. “Now when I think about sexy — sexy for a lot of people used to be perceived as you dress provocatively, it’s how you feel at night,” Kors shared with WWD. “Now, for a lot of women, what makes them feel sexy is feeling powerful. [And] I want something that celebrated the whole idea that sexy in today’s world is powerful… and the fragrance is magnifying your sexy.”
