New York: Michael Kors surprised everyone with an easy-going collection full of rich neutrals and uniform influences for F/W 10. With the look of a soldier who goes AWOL to a high-end ski resort, the designer presented easy-fitting flannel pants, burnished aviator coats and utilitarian turtleneck sweaters with matching infinity scarves. The earthy colors like olive, tobacco and khaki made for a nice contrast to the grey, charcoal and black. The proportions were unexpected for a designer who is usually comfortable with traditional fit; this time focusing on slightly oversized outerwear and a subtle baggy fit for pants. After several seasons of Palm Beach panache, it was refreshing to see Kors head to a colder climate full of luxurious layers.
