New York: Michael Kors revisited the geometry classroom for fall, and more specifically, a 70’s geometry classroom. This was a far cry from the more stripped back aesthetic we’ve been seeing in recent collections – Kors hit refresh and embraced all out “Graphic glamour”. This was made clear from Look one – a mink intarsia oversize coat, in a geometric hexagon repeat – wildly lavish – yet Kors joked that this was “your basic winter coat”. Basic it was not, nor the rest of the line up – sequin geometric tea dresses, layered over elongated shirt collars – which had more than a touch of mod-geek to them. Tailored blazers, knife pleated skirts and cropped kick flares came in a retro modern colour-blocking palette of rich caramels and hot geranium, playing off bold graphic stripes and miniature geometrics. The tailoring felt more contemporary than usual- but never too out of step for the brand, retaining the Kors-esque chic we’ve come to know and love. Loud, lavish and covetable. – Anna Ross
