Stripes and geometry are definitely going to be a big hit for the upcoming warm season, as everyone could have guessed from the Michael Kors spring/summer 2013 collection presented during New York Fashion Week. While Marc Jacobs played stripes in the black and white color palette, Kors chose to liven things up a bit by opting for colorful stripes, which used green, red and black as the main color combination. The designer titled his collection as “geometric allure” and looked to the midcentury architectural geniuses Lautner and Neutra to bring out the geometric energy of the line. “We’re West Coast dreaming”, he stated in a preview of his heavily 60s-influenced lineup.
As always, the Michael Kors show was opened with a girl-guy pair, both wearing striped sweaters. Striped tops were matched with A-line skirts and khaki pants, trench dresses featured wide belts and there were also a trio of black crepe gowns presented with sexy cutouts. Sporty vibes met chicness and sexiness and resulted into standout ensembles that will definitely appeal to daring modern fashionistas.
Color blocking is another trend that hooked Kors’s attention, as the lien featured some rerady-to-wear color-blocked dresses, as well as perfectly put together combos. Red, green, blue, yellow, black, white and cream are the colors of the new spring 2013 season, while metallic details mainly appearing on belts and accessories, as well as sexy leather are certainly cool alternatives for creating chic and sexy looks. The Michael Kors woman completed her look with oversized colorful sunnies, waist accentuating large belts, colorful shoes and small bags.
When it comes to the Kors beauty, the models walked down the catwalk bare faced with eye-catching blue eye shadow. Hair was smooth, parted to the side and gathered into a polished ponytail band.
