With a mix of shapes and primary colors as well as perfect comfort and versatility, Michael Kors brought his Spring Summer 2013 collection of women’s and men’s wear, with references to the space-age 1960’s and the urban-minimal 90s, yet with modern touch of Californian sun as he took the audiences to feel the spirit of West Coast, the city with fabulous architecture, midcentury architects and iconic landmarks.
The collection is all about fitted silhouettes and preppy colors, showcasing a retro throwback to the 60′s with bold block coloring, a large array of rugby stripes, leather dresses and skirts with metal eyelets and over-sized belts. Even a fun print came in the form of a blue sky photo printed on pants. Sunglasses, meanwhile, doubled as face shields. “It’s my take on seeing life through rose-colored glasses,” said Kors. Shine, in fact, was a big accent for the show, featuring zippers, belts and bag metal accents all boasted shiny gold trim.
Some minimalisms of the 1990s can be seen in sleek ladylike structured trench coat, which are used as dresses and mid-thigh-length skirts, while perfectly circular pockets were a consistent theme on the coats along with a variety of material ranging from sequins to rayon fabric. In other words, it is collection of look good and comfortable clothes in geometric glamour and Americana spin.
Living color palette such as yellow, blue and green highlighted the show, which promised to be the darlings of the season. From the girl-guy pair – clad in colorful striped sweaters – that opened the show, what followed was a procession of classic silhouettes, including one-piece tank suits with zips, groovy metal belt-buckles, leather shirtdresses with gold snap closures, a striped sweater over pants that were khaki coming and bright red going, along with several elegant double-breasted coats with big collars, navy green cashmere sweaters, navy skirts, and purses in sporty colors. As for the sensual side daring slits, and swimsuits with a plethora of stripes, and mini-shorts didn’t left out.
