Red and black too over the Kors stage in tartans, checks, and fringed ponchos, the palate works great for the Fall season and regardless of how loud the patterns may be, still comes across as an elegant staple.
If there was one thing that is a strong recurring theme throughout the Michael Kors collection, it was the massive amounts of fur that hit the catwalk. Collars, cuffs, gloves, muffs, coats, vests, shawls, scarves, boots, and of course handbags were all made of the fluffy fuzzy fur and added an elegance that seemed quite old Hollywood. The women even wore similar over-sized fur hats like the ones shown at Marc by Marc but these large hats seemed regal in their own way. After all it is the style of the hat that defines its purpose, not the fabrication.
The evening wear segment of the show displayed long gowns that sparkled with glitter and emphasized the chest and back by using keyhole necklines and open backs. The full length gowns had sleeves at times once again making the looks age diverse as well as adding unspoken mystery to the woman wearing the gorgeous gown.
Though these are very likely to be seen on the red carpet at the Oscars, the collection was not split up as it normally would be. In fact the daywear portion of the show took up well over half. It is likely due to the fact that so many designers in the same markets have gone full tilt into evening wear leaving a gap in the everyday shoppers most commonly needed category.
The shoes accompanying the looks were also 50’s inspired and brought back the instep and ankle strap. An important thing to note was the socks that were worn with the maryjane type shoes. Cute… but certainly a runway look and not one that would or should be duplicated.
