This season’s Michael Kors collection was beautiful: classic, glamorous, and clean. Checkout what Rohaina, Celeste, and Julie thought about the show!
“Simply put, Michael Kors did not fail to stay true to his usual classic style. This fall, Kors has set the stage with an assortment of fur, old school inspired gowns, blanket stripes, large plaid, and leather. Colors seen throughout the show included red, black, gray, camel, ivory, and gold. The combination of classic glamour, a little bit of edge, and woody style is the sum total of fashion seen on Michael Kors’ Fall 2012 runway.
Statement leather coats trimmed with fur are perfect for a cold day. Tweed skirt & jacket combinations keep a girl ready for a day at the office. Plaid patterned wool and light feathered sweater designs were perfect for a casual day out. Beautiful floor-length gowns are ideal for a red carpet event, especially with the old Hollywood glamour touch added in.” – RH
“Michael Kors rocked the runway, kicking off with bold plaid in reds, blacks and greys softened up with creamy teddy-bear coats and woollen knits. The models were beautifully styled with their hair swept back, a rosy cheek and a slick of red lipstick, channelling ‘Outdoor Girl’ perfectly.
To toughen up the look, bouts of black leather and visible zips were mixed in with the plaid; a guaranteed hot look for Fall 2012. The next section saw a wash of icy grey in the form of tailored dresses, angular blazers and visible layers for a moody yet put together winter look.
The show finished with a collection of stunning evening wear. The dresses took on a 1920’s feel with gold sequined flapper dresses eliciting timeless, old school glamour. Then we were dazzled by sparkling gowns that swept the floor with beautiful open backs- a perfect end to a fantastic show. – CSR”
“Michael Kors was certainly at the top of my list of favorites this NYFW, solidifying my obsession with everything Kors! The decor was not overly embellished, and as a result, was successful in focusing all attention towards the style that was being strutted down the runway. The layout of the runway was interesting and slightly different than the other shows that I had seen- Kors had it designed in a two ‘lane’ format, with a portion of the audience sitting in the center as the models walked around them, as if there were two shows occurring simultaneously. It was both a cheerful and enjoyable show to say the least, and- unlike most runway shows- the models weren’t expressionless, and actually smiled throughout the show! Michael Kors even bounced down the runway at the end, appearing just as happy as his models.
Although the majority of the featured color palette was simple, with shades of gray, black, and white making fashionably frequent appearances on the runway, red made a bold impression as well, offering a pop of crisp color to the 2012 collection, both men and women alike. Red was primarily used to accentuate patterns, and was notably employed as a background base color for skirts and sweaters, overlapped by thick black stripes. Along with Kors’ common staple of chunky knit sweaters, the inclusion of fierce furs was another stylish frontrunner exhibited in abundance, as it was used for hooded jackets, scarves, shawls, and even handbags! The show concluded with a series of dazzling, silhouette-hugging evening gowns featured in sparkling red and black, each one enhanced with tasteful slits and cut-outs.
Lincoln Center’s populous turnout was no surprise- it was certainly an event that was not to be missed by anyone in the world of New York fashion.” -JT
