Tim Blanks Throws Back to Michael Kors’ “Millennium Cowboy” Show


tbtblogConsidering creative culture’s recent obsession with vintage America (Western films are taking over this year’s Cannes Film Festival, everyone is still talking about Chanel’s Métiers d’Art show in Dallas, and our sixth issue of was all about “American Spirit”), the time felt ripe to revisit Michael Kors’ Fall ’99 “Millennium Cowboy” collection. “I’m a real American boy, so why not use that?” he told Tim Blanks in today’s Throwback Thursdays video.

Instead of campy cowboy boots and 10-gallon hats, the collection, which Blanks called “quintessential luxury,” featured plush furs, hand-knits, and body-skimming silhouettes. “No one wants to wear a costume,” Kors pointed out. “One of the most enduring, iconic things is the cowboy, so you want to take all of the good things from that and lose everything that’s hokey.” See the entire collection in today’s video, here.
