NYFW SS16: Michael Kors Collection

At Michael Kors Collection this season it was Kors’ modus operandi to remind spectators that his brand can still bring something new, style-conscious and high-brow to contemporary catwalks. Building on this, it was nice to see Michael Kors put all the business bravado aside and concentrate on a collection of delightful separates and chic sunny dresses that floated down the runway freely with a more concentrated sex appeal. This, touch wood, should hopefully mature Kors’ high-end offering furthermore.




Moving on, Kors drew from a wide array of influences to create a creamy cotton boho-luxe; once which valued earthy elegance, feminine flourishes and more contextually, according to Kors himself, the likes of esoteric style icons such as Elsa Perretti, who had a direct aesthetic input. Materially if not spiritually.



A touch of tailoring tied up the final faintly rebellious outcome in a tidy package, remaining as sun-kissed and graced by liquid silk lashes as the rest of the collection, finally sent slinking out in somewhat rugged sandals.

In SS16 Michael Kors staged a relatively believable but partially ponderous show of his current prowess, and the number of notables in attendance, from Kendall on the catwalk to Naomi Watts, Poppy Delevingne and Olivia Wilde on the front row, showed that his spectators are still all eyes for now.
