The Michael Kors woman for Spring/Summer 2015 is a ray of optimistic sunshine in an otherwise pessimistic world. With his face fully turned toward the sun, the designer embraced a warm weather aesthetic that placed gorgeous florals and a ladylike 1950s silhouette front and center. Kors shared his mood board via Twitter, saying, “It’s a summer night, you’re in a convertible, the wind is in your hair, you’re beautiful and in love.”
Kors’ exuberant joie de vivre was expressed in guileless garden party frocks and cozy, casual separates. Whether you’re part of the collegiate crowd or the corporate, there were more than enough thoughtfully assembled, beautiful looks to suit your lifestyle. “Norm-Kors” daywear basics like cap-sleeved tees and tailored capris, or button-up oxfords and full skirts made unfussy choices for spring. At times the collection veered toward the twee – as in the instance where Kors showed a grass green gingham halterneck dress and two floral lace shifts with Peter Pan collars. These looks were too precious to be practical for all but the very young and very naive. Much in keeping with seasonal themes, he presented a series of covetable cover-ups like a classic indigo jacket, a cropped trapeze topper, sophisticated trench coats, and weatherproof jackets with toggle closures. For occasion dressing, there were frothy chiffon skirts embroidered with cheerful daisy appliques and grown-up monochrome classics. Kors knows how to deliver broadly appealing collections with success to the tune of one billion dollars. His empire now spans the globe, and it’s good to know that after all the accolades, he can still deliver style with a smile.
