Michael Kors



New York:  While most of this season’s New York Fashion Week collections have either been buttoned-up interpretations of tradition or nostalgic nods to the past, the aesthetic at Michael Kors more closely matched the relaxed mood of Milan and Paris’s S/S 11 collections. The restrained color palette included clay beige, nutty brown, classic navy and French blue, strengthening the loungewear-like serenity of pajama-striped pants and a trench coat over a scoopneck T-shirt. Heather grey sweats, linen shawl collar sweaters and unconstructed jersey blazers came together for some of the best styling of the season. A cabled, bias-cut sweater, long, looped-and-tucked belts and vegetable-tanned leather sandals worn with socks conveyed a poet-artisan attitude – a luxe version of the kinds of clothes one might imagine Walt Whitman or Henry David Thoreau would wear, if they were alive today.
