Michael Kors' Neo Classic

Kors riffed about "neo-classics,". Tailoring was a focus. Kors was at his strongest when he was thinking sleek: elongating, stretch gabardine cigarette trousers; a pantsuit almost as narrow as the chalk stripes on its charcoal flannel; double-face peacoats and balmacaans.


In a nod to the prevailing mood, Kors also thumbed his nose at the global gods of finance, whipping up shredded fox jackets and coats in acid green. Those may be pretty hard to rationalize on a need basis. But as this savvy designer knows, that will make a certain type of woman want one all the more.

Hey Fe :)

I've never really found MK's fashions alluring nor something I would sport - just plain mostly, but these designs are nice.

Have a fab day :)

I love MK, he is classic American style! His designs always remind me of Jacki O. Loving the pops of color with neutrals which is so in right now! Great post doll xoxo

I NEVER REALLY LIKED MK'S FASHIONS, BUT OVER THE PAST FEW SAESONS, HIS COLLECTION HAVE BEEN AMAZING. THE SHOES, FURS, LEATHERS AND EVERTHING ELSE. I FOUND MYSELF WANTING THEM MORE AND MORE. WHO KNOWS I MIGHT BECOME A FAN BUT AS FOR NOW I JUST REALLY LIKE WHAT I SEE.
THANKS FOR POSTING

I adore the tube dress, or is it a top? the way it's combined with the vintage-look belt is just fab..

I think Michael Kors is brilliant! He knows what a woman wants and works with body shapes. His tailoring is to die for! Most people call it sportswear but I feel he really begins to cross the line to clean and chic avant garde styles...He's good!
