When New York Fashion Week arrives we can look forward to many favorite traditions, including a Wednesday morning date with Michael Kors Collection.
“The inimitable chic of individual style.”
“The flirty freedom of things that move.”
Two distinct and beautiful visions for the latest from Michael Kors Collection. It’s a collection that has been lingering on my mind over the past couple days and now that it’s the weekend, I’m thrilled to finally get the opportunity to dish about the Fall/Winter 2016 collection and all it’s glory.
There’s an indirect cool factor about Michael Kors. An oh, don’t mind me as I casually own the room in my crisp colorful overcoat, perfectly tailored blouse and cult favorite leather bag. MK is fashionable and occasionally edgy, while never being overtly flashy. The Fall 2016 Michael Kors Collection at times even felt like a more subdued Dior to me. It’s a collection I could totally wear the heck out of, with cheerful pieces that would be a welcomed burst of sunshine in the drab and gloomy days of mid-western winters.
I suppose one other really cool thing about Michael Kors, is the versatility in how this man designs clothes. You’re not boxed in. If you wanted to mix the seasons, it would absolutely work. He understands the design basics and the new golden rule, that there essentially is no rule in fashion. He’s also a man that doesn’t play too strongly to trends, which only adds to the timelessness of his pieces…making them an investment for your capsule wardrobe, rather than trendy bits you’ll throw in the “donate” pile upon your next seasonal closet clean-out.
Oh look at me, not discussing the collection at hand, but rather musing over the greatness that is Michael Kors and why my interest continues in his designs. Now, how about a look at THE collection in particular, eh?
I’m really in the mood for color and so this vivid collection is a breath of fresh air to my current winter uniform of grays and black. Thank you Michael Kors for the reminder that color does exist, and it doesn’t just have to exist in the springtime.
Also, thank you Michael Kors for expanding on the ring motif Raf Simons explored at Dior a couple seasons back. It was great then and it’s great now. It’s also great that you intertwined these metallic brocade dresses with basics like a good long-neck sweater and pea jacket. Because, today’s young woman needs both the basics and a great party dress. Indeed!
