Michael Kors plays peek-a-boo
“Utilitarian luxe” is Michael Kors’ buzzword for spring. And in a mostly architecturally digestible line-up Kors was a master slasher cutting strips from airy cashmere sweaters, and pairing these with sharp, structured pieces – a slim pant, a stiff asymmetrical skirt.
Kors’ witty futuristic take included a peep show of bellies, hips and shoulders visible through Perspex strips (think plexiglass) and worked into bathing suits and a dreamy sky blue shift.
Look for neat little dresses detailed with zippers – sort of '60s Mod – in seafoam, whisper lavender, white glove leather – and prints such as soft water colors and splattered ink blots.
Evening shifts in black or silver pailettes featured sheer panels at the neck and hem, very swank. However, some sweaters sort of missed – askew, and kind of yikes – “where’s my sleeve?,” and one black dress with open cage sleeves, um, smacked of S & M.
