Even though we have seen a lot of bright colors, crazy collages and vivid patterns at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York this week, somehow Michael Kors’s collection done entirely in drab winter colors had more cheerfulness than any other show. He was inspired by the coasts of California and the collection features some summery fabrics such as floral printed chiffon, cleverly mixed with warm knits and fur. Romantic summer dresses are tied with big belts and worn with chunky sweaters and flat leather sandals. It is all very sophisticated and feminine, but also incredibly nonchalant. The silhouettes are somewhere between 1940-s and 1970-s, and the collection includes virtually all shades of grey.
