Some are calling it his best collection to date, a sublime meeting of that ever-elusive combination of casual and luxury. “Big Sur meets big city” is how Michael Kors described the relaxed pieces, which included flowing peasant skirts, floral frocks, soft knits and flat shoes. And if the collection was in danger of appearing dull, Kors encouraged us to live la dolce vita by adding some fizz and sparkle to daywear. “Why wait for the Academy Awards to wear sequins? It’s all about chiffon for day,” the designer would argue. With that in mind, be sure to stay relaxed for evenings out in casual trousers and romantic blouses. “We took everything and kind of flipped it around,” he said backstage. Kors noted that the rules of fashion have changed. What hasn’t changed is the designer’s ability to consistently hit the mark with his wearable collections.
