Michael Kors' New York equestrienne did not show up at
Celine; instead, she turned to Nantucket and Berlin
for sartorial inspiration.
Kors' forte has always been relaxed sportswearand his
opening look, a distressed canvas jean, plaid
shirtdress and reversible coyote fur, announced that
this was to be a particularly pared-down moment.
Checkered skirts and blazers, casual burgundy
trousers, zip-up jackets and roomy trenches
followed, sometimes accessorized with a plush fur
Kors changed gears from the rustic to the
hard-edged with military overcoats, naval trousers,
battle jackets and S&M-style leather caps that would've
driven Marlene Dietrich to delirium. The eclectic
melange continued with wisps of lingerie and rugged
tweeds; evening looks consisted of long pleated gowns,
fragile slip dresses and bed-ready camisoles worn with
rugged boots, enormous bouclé coats and savage furs.
