MICHAEL KORS RESORT 2019 COLLECTION
Discover sportif opulence with Michael Kors' latest Cruise collection.
June 25, 2018
With his childhood summers at the Catalina Beach Club in Atlantic Beach, New York, the Michael Kors Resort 2019 collection revisits refreshing classic American sportswear.
The designer gave this collection a sunny, seaside spin with big, bold turquoise flower prints and black and white marinière stripes representing the two sides of what he described as a tug of war between the painterly and the graphic.
The collection featured lush brocades, delicate lace and extravagant embroideries in leggy silhouettes finished with sporty surf and scuba details. Graphic color blocking with a modernist edge was mixed with romantic ruffled skirts, dresses and blouses and juxtaposed with neat tailoring. Crisp coats, trim jackets and cropped trousers were spotlighted.
The mix of deep lapis, turquoise and aqua with sharp black and white was part of the primary palette, meanwhile gleaming metallic silver and gold play off of black for night and day.
Athletic sandals, mod boots and sleek stilettos finish the silhouette. The mini shoulder bag was created in contrast with a cool maxi tote and the utilitarian sport crossbody for a luxe nonchalance.
