I’ve never been a huge fan of Michael Kors. Honestly I though he was in league with Tommy Hilfiger and Nautica for “All American Sportswear” that eventually ends up at Ross. But this show changed my mind.
A friend of mine was telling me about the Marc Jacobs show(coming next) and I showed it to him on youtube. My friend was confused because of the similarity in the letter “M”. He was ACTUALLY referring to the Michael Kors show. He kept on raving about the menswear and to be nice I sat and watched it with him.
First look, “eh rugby stripes, what else is new?” And then the models turned left…”okay, I want that outfit…” So instantly I was pulled in and I became a fan if not just for that first outfit, but for all the color blocked, razor backed menswear. It’s like people think they know what you’re wearing when they see you, but if you turn around you’re a completely different person. I love that the garments keep you interested the entire time. I’m sitting here still surprised. Surprised with the cool menswear, surprised that my friend had a good eye, and surprised that I gave Michael Kors a chance. I’ll have to pay more attention to him from now on. Not on Project Runway though…I can’t afford cable. It’s internet or that.
The only thing I had a problem with, was that Mathias Lauridsen was drowned out in all black…When he looks so beautiful in bright colors(hello Gucci every season!).
