Origami Folds, ZigZag Zippers, Cut-Outs, and More at Michael Kors Spring 2010!

Every year, Michael Kors always sends a cast of jetsetters down the runway of his Spring/Summer shows. Some years they are destined for Capri, sometimes St. Tropez, Malibu or St. Barts; but for his Spring 2010 collection, the guys and dolls are strongly keeping both (very fashionable) feet in the city. After his Fall 2009 spectacle of power and strength, Michael made it clear that there was no vacation this season. “Very optimistic, very upbeat, yet very urban.” Michael explains, “These are spring clothes, not summer.” For the women, Kors fused sleek, high powered, architectural shapes with pastel colours including sea foam blue, mint green, pale lavender and teal. Michael notes “I’ve never done pastels before; I always felt they were a bit too saccharine. But they seem right for spring. That’s what it’s all about.” The design of the shift dresses was the highlight of the show, from origami folds, to zigzag zippers, bold cut-outs and asymmetric necklines, these clothes aren’t for your mother. Dresses with sequins, silver lamé, crushed taffeta and draped jersey were begging to be worn out on the town by a young working woman, not the old Park Avenue grandma Michael once dressed. Kors is also giving the younger man new options while dressing, offering breezy yet sleek clothes perfect for any urban capital. Sleeveless jackets and knits with zipped seams sliced away added intricacy to the menswear, and a colour pallet of sky blue and white added an air of relaxation. After the jump, see some of my favourite women’s and men’s looks, plus the full show video! Michael Kors is my favourite show so far this season!
