MICHAEL KORS: Spring 2010
MR. KORS BEGAN HIS CAREER IN FASHION AT THE AGE OF 19 DESIGNING AND MERCHANDISING A COLLECTION FOR THE RENOWNED BOUTIQUE LOTHAR'S IN NEW YORK CITY. THE SUCCESS OF THESE CLOTHES CAUGHT THE ATTENTION OF THE FASHION PRESS, PROMPTING KORS TO STRIKE OUT ON HIS OWN. IN 1981 THE MICHAEL KORS LABEL WAS FORMED; HIS FIRST WOMEN'S COLLECTION WAS LAUNCHED AT BERGDORF GOODMAN AND SAKS FIFTH AVENUE, AMONG OTHER STORES. SINCE HIS COLLECTION WAS ESTABLISHED, IT HAS NEVER STRAYED FROM KORS' INITIAL VISION OF CHIC, LUXURIOUS AMERICAN SPORTSWEAR.
Michael Kors showed a collection inspired by architectural shapes, very geometrical, asymetrical, with a lot of slits, zigzagging, suits and sleeveless dresses. The collection had a futuristic feel with a lot of metallic and textured prints. His dresses were simple yet edgy and colors remained delectably simple: blue, aqua, lilac, ivory, white, black and silver. A great collection, something expected from Michael.
