Michael Kors Spring/Summer 2010

Monday, September 21, 2009
NYFW has come and gone for another season and not all of us were fortunate enough to have graced the white tents with our presence. Fortunately for us, Michael Kors broadcasted his show live on his website.

I'm a big fan of MK; his handbags are divine, and his clothes are preppy and classic, but still have that edge to them. His S/S 2010 show did not disappoint.

The show definitely had a spring feel. Full of blues, greens, purples, whites and greys, I easily imagined the clothes as easter eggs. They were shiny, pastel-esque and beautiful. The clothes had a simplicity and wearability to them, the kind you could find at Banana Republic or Club Monaco, but it was the details that made them rise above. Details like draping gave the line a ethereal feel. But as much as they were romantical, the line also felt like a modern take on the Mad Men era with no fuss sheaths.

Trends that were present: light/pastel colours, exposed zippers, one shoulder dresses, fabric draping, cut outs, and a significantly toned down version of the emphasized shoulder.

The Michael Kors Spring/Summer 2010 show is still available on the website for viewing.

Love the exposed zippers. Especially on shoes and, of all things, headbands.

I'm so with you on this one, MK is fabulous! I'm in love with this new satchel they just got in - calf leather, black and gold hardware. Argh, I hope they still have ones available by the time I save up money to get it!!
