Michael Kors: FW 2010

03/01/2010

Michael has a knack for tapping into the glamor of the American aesthetic. This collection was filled with luxurious and sumptuous materials (cashmeres, wool, silks) and tons of fur (which, I am personally is back in style this season). The long knit dresses are divine, and I am especially impressed by the lightness of some of the chunkier sweaters.

Although the collection was filled with clean lines and firm construction (CK Menswear circa Fall 2009 anyone?), my favorite pieces were the more authentic looking outerwear and leather pieces. The entire collection was a nice balance between the warmth of a fire at the ski lodge, the rustic firmness of an old leather chair in a smoking room, and city sky-lines. I am especially impressed by the menswear this season, which I would say Kors has missed the mark on for the past few years. Perhaps it is the more neutral palette and utilitarian take (love the boots) that will make it more wearable for the boys. But let’s not leave out some of the stronger ensembles for the women; the double breasted suit and other Kate-Blanchett-as-Joan-Crawford-via-The-Aviator looks will certainly draw a new type of woman to the label.

I think that the hair and make-up was on point as well. The flushed cheeks and wispy hair helped pull the collection together. I am disappointed that they decided to open with Simon Nessman instead of Noah Mills. Michael Kors is a collection for men, not for boys.
