The Michael Kors Spring 2024 RTW runway show celebrated the glamour of a getaway—the romance of escaping to blue skies, balmy weather and sunny days.
“This season, we’re taking everyone on holiday,” says designer Michael Kors. “It’s the transcendent joy of getting away, it’s the sweeping romance of a glamorous escape and it’s a jolt of sophisticated, chic optimism.”
Kors captures a sense of streamlined romance in silhouettes that are short and leggy or soft and floor-sweeping, including fluid goddess dresses, side-slashed skirts and breezy caftans. Empire waist dresses raise the waistline, while flowing skirts of chiffon and lace elongate the body when paired with sleek bodysuits and sweaters. Makeup tints balance sorbet shades of melon, freesia and geranium, while bold florals and graphic giraffe prints lend a postmodern edge. Flat shoes add to the air of effortlessness, underscored by an artisanal handwoven bucket bag that nods to the legendary style of Jane Birkin.
A few of Michael’s favorite tracks from the 1960s created a dreamy multi-dimensional soundtrack as models including Vittoria Ceretti, Anok Yai, Liya Kebede, Natasha Poly, Ashley Graham, Liu Wen, Irina Shayk, Mariacarla Boscono and more walked the idyllic, bougainvillea-lined runway.
Blake Lively, Halle Berry, Vanessa Hudgens, Rita Ora, Ariana DeBose, Anitta and others were among the A-list front row.
