Runway Report: Michael Kors Fall 2016

Inspired by ‘the women’, Michael Kors’ Fall 16 collection was all about relatable glamour. “It’s always been about the muses,” he said during an interview. “In a strange way, they all kind of float through my head, they all kind of mash up together. I like bare legs in winter; I like night for day. I like Alexa Chung mixing with Nan Kempner. It’s about the interesting mix.”

‘Put a feather on it’ was a mini mantra of the show and they turned up on at least 10 of the looks Kors sent down the runway – adorning a pair of jeans, a houndstooth tweed coat, on the skirts of short cocktail dresses and on a pair of sequined party pants. Fall also found the designer embracing Peter Pan collars, floral minis and sugary pops of colour in an otherwise neutral palette.

Kors, as have many other designers, decided to offer 12 pieces for sale straight off the runway including a grey double cashmere knit sweater and a mini kitten heel with pointed toe; all of which are on sale now in his Madison Avenue flagship store and online. “We decided a couple of months ago to offer a few pieces so that people could have new product and understand the message of the show.”
