There was nothing cryptic in his sporty-chic message for his fall collection, presented Wednesday with fans Molly Sims and Laura Linney in the front row. Sims took nine photos of outfits she wants, including the slouchy cashmere sweatpants with belts and the slinky gold beaded gown with a mermaid hem.
“It was so yummy,” said celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe. “Michael really makes women look beautiful. Everyone wants to jump in the clothes from that show.” ones, of course — packed everything for a weekend getaway very nicely.
“First I’d put on the long grey T-shirt, then the chunky grey tights, the striped sweater, that capevest, men’s trousers — this is a lot at once, mind you — the grey knit cap and the wedge lace-up boots. I’m ready for fall,” said Stephanie Solomon of Bloomingdale’s.
Burch, in her notes handed out to the editors, retailers and stylists, said she used a palette with lipstick red, cobalt blue as well as must-have caramel, grey and black that remind her of Picasso’s “Mosqueteros” exhibit and Gerhard Richter’s abstract paintings.
“We are constantly inspired by fashion, art and the way these two worlds influence each other,” Burch said in her notes. It’s that young woman who’s an art enthusiast that served as her muse.
