Like the Fall collection he presented in February, the Michael Kors Pre-Fall 2018 collection is a story about unlikely mash-ups with much diversity in the designer’s silhouettes.
The collection included a baseball tee with a rumba skirt, preppy stripes with a duchesse silk rose print, a strapless red evening dress with zebra shower slides. Kors might be hard-pressed to make that last one fly—save for among his New York gals, who could work the combo on a pre-party bodega run—but you get the irreverent vibe he was going for.
Alongside that 1950s red party frock, there were Lisa Taylor-shot-by-Helmut Newton 1970s shirtdresses and baby doll-ish minidresses worn with motorcycle boots that evoked Courtney Love in her grunge-goddess phase. On the more low-key side, he had high-waisted trouser jeans, plaid pants with a perma-wrinkle, and printed silk pj bottoms.
Kors is known to have his women covered from day to night and continues with this tradition with this collection.
