New York: For a collection reminiscent of 60s French label Courrèges, Michael Kors showed Mod-ish shapes that had a maritime feel with primary brights, plenty of navy and graphic stripes. Bold blocks of color were used to cleverly enhance the female figure. Referring to a pair of crisp color-blocked slacks with a country club appeal Kors said, “I love the concept of golf, but I don’t play.” Michael himself took photographs of the pool and sky on a trip to Beverly Hills, which were transformed into prints on silk shantung for dresses and separates, styled with terry knit tops that suggested well-groomed lawns. The leather pieces were lovely in double-faced skins that were supple as silk. Michael also created the “editor’s coat” – sleek and 60s-chic in bright colors. The show ended with the designer’s trademark slinky dresses in black double-faced crepe with harness-like clever cuts, for a sizzling finish. —Celia Ingesson
