For Spring 2010, missing Project Runway judge Michael Kors presented a sleek collection filled with architectural elements. Modernism was the name of the game, as black, stark whites, icy blues, mint greens and lavenders played with neatly tailored silhouettes. Overall the collection brought a breath of fresh air to fashion’s sharp lines and recent shoulder obsession.
The main staple in this collection were sleeveless shift dresses in the vein of Michelle Obama, Kors’ most high-profile client. The shifts came in various fabrics and colors, from silver lamé and crushed taffeta to glove leather and a blue radzimir one with origami like folds.
While shift dresses may have been the main focus, Kors did manage to slip in a few other interesting pieces including cocktail dresses with cut outs and a group of sweaters with extra sleeves for you to tie around your neck preppy style. In addition, he created a more modern approach to men’s wear and dresses with graphic plastic inserts that added to the overall feel of the collection.
If Heidi and his peers were judging his work, I’m sure Kors’ intentionally minimalist collection would be “in.”
