The Michael Kors SS19 collection was revealed this week in NYC during NYFW The Shows at Pier 17.

TROPICAL VIBES + BORA BORA MOJO
By: Lourdes Mestre for FashionWeek.Pro
Mr. Kors knocked it out of the park & had us all yearning for the tropics. The vibe was fresh, the music selection inspired & the models smiled naturally down the runway at Pier 17 turning a rainy NYC day into pure sunshine. There was diversity on the runway representing all shapes and sizes. The vibrantly bold prints engineered on various fabrics and textures transport you to a beach paradise. Looking at each individual look that the collection presented, there is a unique range of stylistic prowess from the very formal final look that Gigi Hadid wore – to the most casual beach gear throughout the show. The music tracks are all the chatter on social media commentary – all looking for that perfect playlist Mr. Kors carefully curated for this show. Among the songs featured in the show is ‘Quimbara’ by the Cuban Queen Celia Cruz – one of my all-time favourite songs.
Mr. Kors – Bravo! This line is #WhatToWear in Spring 2019. Absolute 5-Stars!

M. Kors nous avons tous aspiré aux tropiques. L’ambiance était fraîche, la sélection de musique inspirée et les modèles souriaient naturellement le long du défilé du quai 17, transformant un jour pluvieux de New York en soleil. Il y avait une diversité sur la piste représentant toutes les formes et toutes les tailles. Les imprimés aux couleurs vives, conçus sur divers tissus et textures, vous transportent dans un paradis de plage. En examinant chaque aspect individuel de la collection présentée, il existe une gamme unique de prouesses stylistiques allant du look final très formel que portait Gigi Hadid aux équipements de plage les plus décontractés de la série. Les morceaux de musique sont tous les commentaires sur les médias sociaux – tous recherchent la liste de lecture parfaite que M. Kors a soigneusement organisée pour cette émission. «Quimbara» de la reine cubaine Celia Cruz est l’une de mes chansons préférées. Mr. Kors – Bravo! Cette ligne est #WhatToWear au printemps 2019. 5 étoiles!
Michael Kors sees himself as a mood enhancer. It’s gloom and doom everywhere you turn these days, which makes him all the more determined to create joy. Kors finds his joy at the beach, so that was the backdrop and inspiration for his new collection. He booked Pier 17 on the Seaport to set the mood—and wouldn’t you know it?—it was a foggy morning, but artist Christina Zimpel’s colorful installations conjured visions of sunnier days. As a native of Perth, Australia, she knows a thing or two about the subject, and she also hand-painted some leather totes. The clothes’ vibe was similarly seaside and chill; think rash guard, not avant-garde.
The designer and his husband checked out Bora Bora and Tetiaroa earlier this year; Kors said it inspired the first underwater print of his 37-year career. Elsewhere, there were all sorts of nods to the bright days of summer: surf shirts and baja sweaters in cashmere, easy cotton dresses in juicy shades of lime and watermelon, and metallic brocades to wear bare-legged to dinner. For the color-averse, he did a white lace bell-bottom jumpsuit that he described as the love child of Julie Christie and Jane Birkin (what a vision!), and eveningwear that could double as swimwear if the mood struck.
At a preview, Kors showed off a pair of sky blue pinwheel corduroys inspired by the pair he picked up working his first sales job at Lothar’s. They didn’t appear to make it onto the runway today. Too bad! A little of that low-key earthiness would not have been remiss. Kors is a global business, but it’s his heartbeat that’s gotta keep it pumping. On that note, consider the canvas totes and cashmere beach-towel wraps stamped with the logo MK Beach Club. Back at the preview, he said that if he ever decided to branch out beyond fashion, he’d open a string of beach clubs at popular resort spots around the world, from Malibu to St. Tropez to Tamarama outside Sydney. It’s a fab idea.
