"Palm Bitch" was the inspiration for Michael Kors's extravagant and luxurious cavalcade of tangerine, lemon and bright-pink looks. There were familiar Kors favorites like jersey shifts (this time in Lilly Pulitzer-like acid-colored floral patterns) and sumptuous cashmere cable pullovers in bright yellow and white. Buttery leather skirts were embroidered and paired with simple tanks, while zebra prints made unexpected appearances in everything from cotton shifts to bikinis and cabana shirts. For an evening of uncomplicated glamour, Kors offered slinky jersey columns, nude beaded gowns and seafoam-colored halters.
