Michael Kors’s crisscross strap maillot turned up on at least two June issues of fashion magazines. Chalk it up to all the traveling he does; the designer has a way with getaway clothes.
His Resort presentations tend to be a delight, lots of good pieces and lots of clever talk about them. Take the way he described a little cocktail shaker of a party dress—“Destination: dancing on a table”—or his mink coat and matching mink backpack, calling it “the new twinset.” The collection was as diverse as we’ve come to expect from Resort, a season that bridges cold-weather outerwear, holiday party attire, office-ready separates, and true getaway gear. Kors’s new must-have suit is a black-and-white polka-dot tank with a big cutout in the center. Hers are some of Haute D’vie Picks .
As all-categories-for-all-climes as it was, the lineup was unified by a graphic sharpness. Black-and-white polka-dot pieces gave off a mod ’60s vibe, thanks in no small part to the matching chunky-heeled Mary Janes he paired with many of the looks. Alternatively, there were furry mukluks, and apropos of that, here’s another Kors-ism: “She definitely has a DHL number to ship her shoes.” Marinière and regatta stripes, meanwhile, had a crisp appeal, whether they turned up on a cashmere sweater or an intarsia mink. Kors knows his girls can’t resist a stripe, so they also came in sequins on party dresses short and long.
