At the risk of sounding like a delirious fan I just have to say, I love Michael Kors! He’s one of few designers that women and husbands alike are willing to shell out full price for (as apparent over Christmas when my friend’s hubby bought her the entire MK Cruise collection at full price when everyone else was scavenging for sale stuff and my own hubby who stepped up for a full length sheared mink Michael Kors coat for my birthday). So it was no surprise to me that he showed another stellar and wearable collection this week at Bryant Park. Seriously, if you just buy a few key pieces from Michael’s Fall 2009 collection you will be set for the season!
Kors was on trend with the love affair fashion is having with all things 80′s but kept it modern and fresh. Big shoulders were softened with orgiami pleats while neon hued dresses and coats were stylish and fun, not garish. Tailored jackets with sleek and sexy architectural seaming called to Kelly while I counted the number of asymmetrical and sculpted dresses that I’ll be ordering (5). Simple sheaths were spiced up with dramatic necklines lending further allure to the powerful and chic silhouettes. Structured clutches and bold chains finished off the polished looks beautifully. While Marc Jacobs bordered on the “circus freakish”; Michael Kors hits the mark with a confident urban wardrobe for the modern woman. (Jump to see my must have list and more photos!)
