RUNWAY TO RANCH
New York: Michael Kors’ inspirations are often writ large through his collections, built upon simple, functional nods to a particular time or place. Pre-Fall was an exploration of the Southwestern rancher, albeit a pared-down, fashion-conscious cowgirl. The heavy masculinity of leather harnesses, belts and boots was tempered by flirtatious, asymmetric-hem dresses, cinched at the waist and clinging from head-to-toe. Outerwear proved easy and practical, even a two-tone Mongolian fur coat, whose shaggy texture will keep Kors’ customer warm on the open plains or the city streets. Accessories were the designer’s most obvious odes to ranch culture, some a bit too literal, like cowboy hats and patterned cowhide; others such as studded messenger bags and oversize belt buckles gave just the right amount of reference. —Nina Stotler
