Michael Kors was
one of the few designers to show menswear at September
Fashion Week. His menswear is (as are his designs
for women) colored from a palette of blue, gray
with a touch of white and purple. The men's line
features sharply tailored jackets in colors that
would be perfect for a fete in Palms Springs; they
are artsy clothes for an artsy lifestyle. .
Kors line for Spring 2010 showcased the traditional
lines and tailoring for which Kors in renowned.
But this traditional tailoring was "funned
up" by casual sweaters with out outs and slits.
For women, there are a group of artfully constructed
sheaths for the "sheath and pearls" set.
Of note was the architectural sleeve on an interesting
blue sheath which would be just the thing for the
"lady who lunches" who like a touch of
whimsy in her dress.
And there was, of
course, the required incredibly hot swimsuit that
you could never wear in a pool (plastic cutouts).
