Michael Kors Collection Resort 2017 On Bessd
Michael Kors’s crisscross strap maillot turned up on at least two June issues of fashion magazines. Chalk it up to all the traveling he does; the designer has a way with getaway clothes. His Resort presentations tend to be a delight, lots of good pieces and lots of clever talk about them. Take the way he described a little cocktail shaker of a party dress—“Destination: dancing on a table”—or his mink coat and matching mink backpack, calling it “the new twinset.” The collection was as diverse as we’ve come to expect from Resort, a season that bridges cold-weather outerwear, holiday party attire, office-ready separates, and true getaway gear. Kors’s new must-have suit is a black-and-white polka-dot tank with a big cut-out in the center.
As all-categories-for-all-climes as it was, the lineup was unified by a graphic sharpness. Black-and-white polka-dot pieces gave off a mod ’60s vibe, thanks in no small part to the matching
chunky-heeled Mary Janes he paired with many of the looks. Alternatively, there were furry mukluks, and apropos of that, here’s another Kors-ism: “She definitely has a DHL number to ship her shoes.” Marinière and regatta stripes, meanwhile, had a crisp appeal, whether they turned up on a cashmere sweater or an intarsia mink. Kors knows his girls can’t resist a stripe, so they also came in sequins on party dresses short and long.
