Tommy Ton was a major player in the rise of street style photography, as one of the first photographers to snap editors coming and going from fashion week shows. His latest campaign, captured for Michael Kors, is a true ode to the art of street style photography, featuring fashion icons like Solange Knowles, Soo Joo Park, Nina Agdal and Princess Olympia of Greece on the streets of New York City. The campaign, called "The Walk," highlights the designer’s fall handbags, which the influencers styled with Michael Kors fall ready-to-wear. “It was really a fun experience observing how each girl would make the clothes and accessories their own while still being true to their everyday style,” Ton says.
