Plaid, fur and sequins–oh my! This season, Michael Kors plays up patterns and textures with oversized plaid ponchos, fur coats, cuffs and collars, and floor-length sequin dresses. What does he seem to be telling us? Drama is in. MK’s go-to colors for this collection are red and black. The combination of these sultry colors make even a turtleneck look sexy. MK’s plaids and furs are reminiscent of old Scotland. His silhouettes are conservative and textures are thick and durable. He puts sweaters on top of dresses. Many of the models sport thick, chunky socks with heels. Yet, there are no high heels in this collection–MK’s shoes have mid-sized heels and Mary Jane-like straps around the front. There are even a few clogs and military boots in the mix. This collection is all about durability with a hint of sassiness. I definitely think these trends will trickle down into mainstream retail. Who doesn’t love a warm chunky sweater? Thanks, MK.
The fall is so long from now so let’s take a step back! Below is Prada’s new video campaign for Spring/Summer 2010 which includes bright colors, lots of stripes, neon furs, and funky sunglasses. The models in the video are dancing to Ratatat’s “Mirando”.
