Michael Kors Catwalk Fashion Show New York SS2011
For spring 2011 Michael Kors decided to design happy, colorful clothes. Backstage he was telling how he tried to incorporate all things in life that make him smile into his collection. He got inspired by his large terrace and the great beach life he lives.
The inspiration was visible through the colors in the show: beige, camel, green and pink. ‘In fact all colors I used, are colors you can find in the garden or on the beach’, Michael said.
The backdrop of the show was a green grass turf and even the models had a very natural look going on. Their hair was in a messy ponytail and they got red cheeks, which represented small sun burns.
The clothes were all very relaxed; long, over the knee skirts and jackets and loose fitting tops and dresses. The designs looked effortless, without being boring. And according to Michael Kors that’s where fashion is going. ‘Clothes are going to be much more relaxed; longer lengths and more comfortable shoes’, he said. A minute later he added: ‘Clothes have to be cosy enough for at home, yet luxurious enough to wear in the city.’
Michael stressed the nature aspect of his collection by sending out some surprising looks which seemed to be made of turf. He showed some stunning bathing suits and combined a grey jersey sweater with a beige-shaded pair of glitter pants together in one contrastive look. The stuffy granny’s hats were not quite our taste, yet overall Michael showed enough great designs to choose from.
And the fact that he was proud of it, was proved by his whole victory lap at the end of the show. Bravo!
