Michael Kors Fall/Winter 2011 RTW
When I saw Michael Kors' Fall/Winter 2012 collection, the first thing I said was, "Yes! Michael Kors is back!" After his huge disappointment of a Spring/Summer 2011 collection, I was so relieved to see him dumping the overly relaxed aesthetic of his last collection, for his signature classic, glamorous ensembles. There were still relaxed silhouettes in this collection, but they were done with precise tailoring and an overall sleek line, achieved through monochrome dressing. To start, Kors paired slick pantsuits or dresses underneath big toppers:
Then the fit started to become looser with languid draping, but the tailoring was still clean cut:
And it's not a Michael Kors collection without some glamour! Kors amped up the glamour by giving us some twinkling looks:
To celebrate 30 years in business, Kors gave his customers exactly what they wanted: clean, classic glamour. Now this is the Kors that I know and love.
