In the lively presentation of the Michael Kors Fall 2016 colelction, there was a selection of ready-to-wear clothes, shoes, and bags that you could purchase at his Madison Avenue flagship and on MichaelKors.com. “It’s an experiment,” he said backstage. That’s the attitude he brought to the new collection: “I like bare legs in winter; I like night for day. I like Alexa Chung mixing with Nan Kempner. It’s about the interesting mix.”
The collection featured an inimitable chic of individual style with the flirty freedom of things that move. Including feathers, streamers, slashes, chains and slits, there was aa textural mix of tweeds, plaids and tattersalls with charming florals and luxe metallic brocades. Featuring shrunken jackets and trim, tailored coats, leggy skirts and dresses in a-line or softly pleated shapes and romantic blouses and dresses juxtaposed with polished tailoring. The statement pieces included oversized furs and shearlings in shorter lengths.
Accessories made a statement with hain-handled envelope bag, the studded camera bag. Shoes had personality, from the chunky loafer and rock ’n’ roll mary jane to the streamlined kitten and stiletto.
