The Michael Kors Spring 2018 collection is inspired by a certain fresh-faced, All-American woman. Season after season, the legendary American designer finds a new way to create a collection around a classic muse.
The designer brought laid-back beachy vibes to every urbane piece he put on the runway. Kors saw a lot of cut-offs, flip-flops, and girls going pantsless.
Many of the models wore flip-flops, even with some of the more evening-minded looks, and a tie-dye print was splashed across pieces for both men and women alike. Kors worked in a palette of breezy pastels—the colors of the New York season—before graduating to navy, gray, and black; and, in addition to the subtle tie-dying, he devised palm tree–shadow prints in the same breezy spirit. The palm trees covered slip dresses and sarongs, as well as accent pieces that he paired with overscale blazers. It ran the gamut from full-on vacation kit to singular items designed to conjure an out-of-office feeling.
The looks towards the end included silver sequins adding shine to a relaxed pant or a strappy sundress and a black sequined sarong-style skirt giving laid-back edge to a sheer, long-sleeved shirt.
