Michael Kors is at his best when he allows a little edge to cut through his luxurious sensibility. The collection he showed for fall, michael kors handbags canadarife with references to biker leathers and tough-but-sexy chicks, had just the right blend of rock ‘n’ roll energy and urban sophistication. In his notes, Kors mentioned the go-go world of Warhol in the ’60s, but the collection was refreshingly free of retro references—unless you count the legions of tight little minis he sent out, in cashmere, crocodile and stretchy wools. (The best of all, a marvelous piece of walnut-brown fringed suede, was worn—like no one else can—by Naomi Campbell.) Kors paired these, or smart, skinny pants, with great oversized toppers of all genres: giant satin jean jackets, studded black leather styles, slouchy anoraks with fur trim and generous reefers and bathrobe coats made from plush cashmere or mink. For night, he stitched bands of silvery fringe onto skirts and dresses, and ended with a dazzling, glittery disco-ball of a dress on Carmen—perfect for frugging the night away at Ondine’s As much as he loves Gotham glamour, even Michael Kors needs to get out of the city once in a while. For spring, he headed to California, taking inspiration from its laid-back way of life and those casual style icons (Slim Keith, Lauren Bacall) whose sex appeal was about ease, not sleaze. Kors paid homage to the great outdoors, Left Coast–style, via cotton piqué polo shirts, snappy little dresses (accessorized with practical, flat shoes and golf gloves) and a few bathing suits, all done in classic neutrals: khaki, navy, white, ivory. For those times when even beach bunnies have to come indoors, Kors added relaxed, knee-length jersey dresses and skirts in bands of blue-sky tones; crisp cotton tuxedo shirts worn with tailored pants; and fuzzy twinsets in bold turquoise. Lovely guipure dresses and organza skirts paired with the simplest knit tops were just right for poolside parties, with a glossy leather jacket or a supple deerskin balmacaan to ward off brisk nighttime breezes. And to pack it all up for an impromptu weekend in Lake Tahoe, Kors provided generous leather totes that fit perfectly in the trunk of the Mustang.
Michael Kors went right for the heart of his customer with a Fall show that blended elegant luxury with down-home comfort. Inspired Michael Kors Men Watches in part by “the rustic glamour of Aspen,” Kors designed a collection perfect for one of his smart urban customers who might jump on her Harley on Friday and zoom off to spend the weekend skiing at Stowe. For the trip up, she’ll put on one of his tough-girl chic leather motorcycle jackets and his skintight cotton ripstop pants; once there, she’ll undo the knee-to-ankle zipper to make a sharp boot-cut trouser, and throw on a quilted leather anorak and hand-painted jeans or a fluffy knee-length coyote vest to hang out in the lodge. Après-ski, she’ll slip into a feather-light cashmere baby doll or a camel pointelle jersey dress for hearthside lounging. Kors covered the work week beautifully as well, with double-face wool pieces like a generous clutch coat over a short wrap-front skirt, lightweight cashmere dresses and sweaters, or a chic suede coat and pants hand-painted in a herringbone pattern. The bonus prize? With all the smart-looking new menswear Kors showed, her boyfriend can look just as good as she does.”I really appreciate the fact that we have all come together,” said a newly mustachioed Michael Kors before his showroom presentation. “Let’s be cheerleaders for all that New York has to offer, because this is the most amazing city in the world.” Kors’ positive outlook was evident in a concise collection that brought to mind the best of Halston, with an injection of movie-star glamour (his update on the giant tie-strap tote bag is destined to become a collectible). Alongside beachy getaway clothes, more sophisticated urban looks included chinoiserie-inspired red lacquer cardigans and sweatshirts, georgette halter dresses, and brush-stroke skirts (upon close inspection, some of the abstract prints proved to be expressionist MK logos). Evening took a turn for the dramatic with slinky bandeau columns and stunning black-and-gold embroidered tulle shells and shifts. Kors’ practical yet lighthearted collection struck a chord that is likely to resonate throughout this season.0aZkdBNa
