Is the Michael Kors woman ageless? I would agree because in recent interview I saw featuring Kors he discussed that his client is between the ages of 15 to 75+. If you think about it, he is dressing 4 generations of women all with different styles but somehow Kors’ aesthetic works for everyone. I believe it’s his high/low mixture of pieces made from simple textiles of cotton blends to the most luxurious cashmeres, leathers and animal skins that offer his clients flexibility in their wardrobes.
Kors also packed the supermodel power during this show that opened with five former top models including Carolyn Murphy, Karen Elson, Frankie Rayder, Liisa Winkler, and Jacquetta Wheeler. Missing from the show lineup was Kors’ former campaign model, Carmen Kass, All-American model Maggie Rizer, superstar Liya Kebede, and the one and only Naomi Campbell.
The collection featured Kors’ love of mixing high and low-end fabrics together including cashmere and fur with leather belts and tons of suede fringe. He is a master of creating items that every man, woman, and child would want in their wardrobes. Some of his day pieces included suits, pants, skirts, sweaters, tops and overcoats. One of my favorites a camel floor length coat with a simple and glamorous silvery-gray slipdress.
Kors also featured dress with an A-Line skirt that made me think about the late American socialite, C.Z. Guest who would have been the ultimate Michael Kors woman. She was sexy, sporty, and glamorous, three moods that Kors’ designer philosophy follows. His woman doesn’t have to choose between these emotions, they can be all three from an outfit from the house.
I am excited to see what Kors has to offer during New York Fashion Week next month when his Spring/Summer 2015 Collection is presented.
