Cape Breton Post - - STYLEFOCUS - BY SA­MAN­THA CRITCHELL

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.
