Michael Kors Unveiled Pretty Florals and Strong Tailoring at Spring 2017 NYFW Show
Why focus on one single style, when you can embrace more? The newest Michael Kors spring/summer 2017 ready-to-wear collection is so diverse, you will quickly find yourself lost among the daywear, beachwear and nightwear proposals the designer overwhelmed us with.
The Michael Kors summer 2017 collection did, in fact, bring the designer’s signature clean glamour to the New York Fashion Week, yet infusing it with a multitude of different styles and inspirations, which overall makes it almost impossible to decide which one is better.
Micheal Kors, who has been always determined to prove one can be sporty and sexy at the same time, used his ability to infuse everything with his iconic sporty-chic touch, translating it to both uber-minimalistic and more complex, maximalist staples.
The Michael Kors spring/summer 2017 collection could be divided into two main themes – a more relaxed, monochrome one, and a whimsical style. Each one of the two different sections got loaded with an incredible amount of diverse offerings, the eclectic patterns and lines of which make the idea of investing in one of the Michael Kors spring proposals pretty appealing.
The pieces not only easily transition from one season to another, but could be effortlessly sported at the office, during the day, or at a fancy restaurant or club during the night.
As for the minimalistic part of the Michael Kors spring/summer 2017 collection, the American designer opted for oversized lines accentuated with layers of textured fabrics, often drawing inspiration from the urban-chic, street style attire options he often creates for his menswear line.
Button-down shirts, double-breasted jackets and pantsuits dominate this section, often spiced up with a touch of femininity thanks to cropped cuts and lines that are more sinuous. Such menswear-inspired items were offered alongside the conventionally feminine looks, the multi-colored and flirty patterns of which really made us smile from ear to ear.
The line-up’s second section featured loads of floral patterns and breezy colors, among which a bright bubblegum pink surely stands out (Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen used a similar shade for their Elizabeth and James collection too, reminding us Wednesday is for pink, indeed!).
Juxtaposed with more earthy-toned hues, those jocose colors were used to enhance the figures through high-waisted swimsuits, short shorts, wrapped dresses and, of course, matching bags and shoes, as Kors’ styling is always on point when it comes to the accessory line.
This second, more casual-chic selection of looks made us feel as if we were still on vacation, and will surely evoke some cool feelings of summertime sadness as soon as it hits the stores. Those who experience a sort of ‘summertime state of mind’ all year long can even nostalgically sport some of these staples right now, as a few of the items showcased are already available at MichaelKors.com.
As if things were not exciting and emotional enough, Kors asked singer and composer Rufus Wainwright to perform during the runway show, surely helping the daydreaming vibes spread among the lucky ones who attended the show.
