New York: The Bauhaus, Constructivist and Pop Art movements have been in the ether of late, with graphic shapes and bright tones popping up on the S/S 11 runways. Michael Kors offered his take on the trend for Pre-Fall. A striking palette of black, optic white, bright red and Yves Klein blue echoed the tones used in Pop Art, while gradient stripes and color-blocking conjured the structure of the Bauhaus. Sharply tailored cropped trousers and minimal coats were appealing in their simplicity, and black leather accents added an edge and touch of luster. Knits were slim with crew necklines, appearing in solid tones or in all manner of stripes, used for tops and dresses. A bright white cross-body bag had an additional waist strap that gave it a harness-like look and drew graphic lines across dark sweaters. Kors’ clear and well-executed collection was in line with current trends while also projecting the designer’s classic, straightforward style.
