Michael Kors debuted his SS 10 [spring/summer 2010] collection today in New York Fashion Week. Known for is classic “Americana” style, Michael edged things up a little for spring. According to fashion critics “it was the most commercial expression of the ripped and slashed, ’80s-era, Japanese-influenced anti-fashion trend we’ve been seeing on the runways this week.” His collection was inspired by architecture, sharp lines and angles, best expressed in the simple shift, traversed with zips and clear plastic ‘windows’ which revealed glimpses of midriff and thigh.The colors used in his collection consisted of soft water colors which created a fresh and sophisticated look.
Kors also offered cardigans with multiple sleeves, turtleneck pullovers with a single sleeve, and crew necks with ripped hems for everyday wear. As the spectators watched the models walk down the runway, many felt the cuts were not so flattering. Overall, the biggest critique of Michael Kors’ new collection is whether or not his pieces will be complementary to the average size person.
