After his relaxed collection of classic American
sportswear in New York, Michael Kors hit the nail on
the head once again at Celine.
Kors' collection was inspired by visions of desert
life, with rich safari and unstructured military
themes. Vintage denim bombers and pale jeans,
distressed leather trousers and officers' coats, suede
sarongs and linen Sahara coats will be a welcome
change for the ladies who donned last season's
Dynasty-inspired collection. Naturally, Kors still
provided the luxurious, highly refined basics his
customers swear by: There was a sensational gold-leaf
cashmere turtleneck, a sinful crocodile battle number
and a divine bronzed wool military jacket. Kors also
indulged in cashmere sweatpants and shirts which
hadn't been done with such ease since Norma Kamali.
Tortoise-print bikinis and safari dresses were also
lighthearted and fun.
Kors' collection proved that you don't have to stage a
revolution to make a point. His clothes spoke of a
quiet, sophisticated luxury that is perfectly in tune
with the moment.
