New York Fashion Week, Fall 2007: Michael Kors
American fashion's golden boy Michael Kors delivered a hot and cold Fall 2007 collection. Sportswear was on many designers' minds for Fall and that is Kors' forte.
The color story, coincidentally, can be told through my mod dress I recently wore. Fur was super sized and popped as trimmings and hoods; but the cobalt blue and black fatty jacket was a sight to see (and the model sporting it knows it). His daytime tweeds and suiting was wonderful in luxurious neutral and heather grey with splashes of canary yellow, tangerine and cobalt blue. Speaking of, the cobalt belted shift dress made me swoon.
Jackets were sharp, cropped and double breasted and a bit 60s when paired with slim cropped pants. 3/4" sleeves were a favorite touch, and wide trousers with cuffs were straight up power dressing. A black and gold sequined shift dress with feather trim hem was a fun little number. His finale gowns were what fell flat for me; simple, draped column dresses in bland colors. However, the one shouldered long sleeve black beaded gown with scalloped bust was for sure a crowd pleaser.
This slim, strapless black ensemble is my favorite; I would love to strut my stuff in it!
