Michael Kors Ready To Wear Fall Winter 2013 New York

Michael Kors is on the hunt next winter. And the hunting grounds for his fall/winter 2013 collection are where the designer feels most in his element, the urban big city streets of America.

The Kors woman (and man) will be hard to miss next year thanks to the designer’s choice to bring together slightly oversized proportions with “stop you in your tracks” colors like cobalt blue, taxi yellow and hunter’s orange. Cut in a sporty style that saw boxy jackets bonded with black leather hemlines, rubberized “car tire” knit tops and perforated felt circle skirts that mimicked mesh - the collection was a metropolitan mash up of stylish gymwear and outdoorsman outerwear.

A concept was clearly underlined by the introduction of a number of camouflage pieces. But this being Kors the pattern came cut in luxe fabrics such as a silk jacquard suit, cocooning mink coats, techno gabardine pants and a particularly striking faille parachute skirt with a bustle at the back.

At certain points the designer’s urban warriors gave way to more traditional designs. Say a beautifully cut portrait collar Donegal patterned pant suit, or a fitted knit dress crafted with a peplum to give some sculptural attitude at the waist. And it was those pieces that will probably be the ones that will have the longer lasting impact on a woman’s wardrobe.

As for the final short skirted evening gowns that featured cutaway parachute skirts in the same bright colors seen before on the strong outerwear, well they felt a bit tacked on at the last minute. A strange hybrid that looked neither sporty nor sophisticated.

While Kors didn’t exactly hit the bullseye with this show, he most defiantly made an indelible mark with many of his designs.
