If your clothes look unflattering on supermodels what hope does the average joe have?
Strong casting, collection - not so much. It is nice to see Nessman back on runway.
Such an underwhelming anniversary collection, I only like the sequins coat on Julia. The rest is just look airport duty-free, avoid any kind of identity or signature of MK.
Michael need to go on Vogue Runway and looks at his own collections in the 90s and return to that sleek, luxurious, sexiness that he used to do.
Meh clothes with great 90s models.
Some of the clothes are not exciting but also not boring but i loved the presentation. The music and location plus casting was amazing.
This is so random and sometimes the styling was just so wrong. Then I checked and saw that Nazario was in charge .
Forgettable anniversary for a forgettable brand.
^^^ I don’t feel it’s random. It does look and feel very carefully manufactured-by-a-marketing-committee corporate. It’s at once tasteful and so boring: Like a department-store’s in-house design team trying to capture the smoulder and heat of Tom Ford’s Gucci but the results are so processed and commercial it’s just soulless. Absolutely forgettable, yes.
Quite a boring collection, indeed. I can't put my finger on it, but the clothes (while nice) just feel rather stale. I am genuinely curious tho (and not trying to start anything, lol, truly) but what styling did you find to be bad? I wasn't put off...really
I feel like this collection is kind of outlet-ready, but I wouldn't expect anything exciting from a brand that got completely diluted in the last 10 years. See, no matter how pretty the clothes are, at the end of the day there are all the bloggers from around 2013-2014 with their Kors bags ready to haunt. The hype has completely disappeared, but the damage and the results of overexposure are still visible.
While it is true that these kind of clothes do not make anybody turn around these days, I think that in celebrating his anniversary Kors, quite smartly, went back to his roots: pure, sleek and subtly sexy American sportswear, like the sort of stuff that gave him his fame in the early nineties.
Kors never got enough credit for it, or, for that matter, for first reviving a then ailing brand like Celine (and somehow Phoebe took it from where MK left it and gave it a more intellectual spin); also, his showbiz persona somehow overshadowed his fashion career - not to mention the awful MK mid-range RTW and accessories that made him such persona. But I still want to defend his work: for all its boring-ness, I would still pick it up a hundred times over any Telfar or Vaquera hitting the spotlight in the press.
In my honest opinion, it is really impossible to hate the billionaire designer whose career has unfortunately been categorized by a mundane, basic accessories line. I sold his Michael by Michael Kors shoes and the cheap apparel that accompanies these products and the heels in particular are made so, so poorly. His runway line, however banal it may appear on screen, has some beautiful pieces that, given the chance, would make anyone look modern. Some of the more trendy pieces, the faux fur (I imagine) coats are definitely beautiful. The pinstripe double breasted elongated blazer is nice for its play on proportion, as is the oversized white blazer worn under the strapless silver dress. I would never admit that I am a Michael Kors fan in public for fear of being categorized as someone with no taste, but Michael can and still does produce relatively nice, simple contemporary clothing. Also his takes on project runway were hilarious and for that, despite that awful diffusion line, I will always be impartial to him. Congrats on 40 years!
It's safe and a little bit boring, but it's beautifully made and just a step above basic. Everything looks like Céline these days, so it's nice to see someone staying true to their aesthetic instead of riding the tails of someone else's success. I like it better than Versace, that's for sure!
American designers and their silk jersey sequined column dresses...
The collection is not memorable but it is at the same time very MK. There’s something very Tom Ford in the allure tho (a bit more seductive than usual).
This collection is refreshing because it brings back that impulse of dressing up without giving up the glamour.
There are some fabulous moments like the first 3 looks, some easy styling ideas that works (the sequined down jacket look) but I think that despite being one of the greatest champion of American Sportswear, he hasn’t managed to really give his personality in this.
The last Marc Jacobs collection that was also about that idea of American Sportswear was similar.
What makes this kind of boring and forgettable is this very proper/no risks taken approach. Everything is very much perfect in the most basic sense of the word. Even the animal prints are too proper...
I like when there’s a bit of accident...
But the video was good and I think the kind of women who buys this will love this.
The irony of MK standing up for Glamour and Donatella indulging more and more with the worst of commercialism.
We can all thank Halston for that one, what would actresses (american or not) wear to the red carpet otherwise?
I'm only sort of interested in the down coats, Sarah Grace's in special. The eveningwear is particularly uninspired, a collection to scroll past quickly and forget about even quicker.
At least Marc Jacobs, who I remain mostly indifferent to, offered a somewhat fresh rendition of the practical/boring american style and had some double face wool coats that were at once fun, classical and wearable.
I hope designers like Kors get little coverage in next year's MET Gala, it would otherwise be very unfair to Bonnie Cashin, Geoffrey Beene or Stephen Burrows...who actually had something to say. No Mizrahi either, please!
Forgettable? Yes. Versace level ugly? No! And no Carmen Kass
That style of sequined jersey fitted dresses is more Norman Norell or Halston?
I associate more Halston with draped, plissés and biais cut Silk jersey but maybe he was the first to actually do this.
While it’s a totally uninspired styled at this point, he could have at least done them in interesting colors. I hate when Tom Ford does them (and he does them a lot) but at least he tries everytime to renew the exercise...
Black, silver and gold? Really!?
I don’t think he will. I just hope that out of those who already got the exposure of a museum exhibition, they will choose fresher designs...I don’t think we need to see the many renditions of the football dresses next to the Geoffrey Beene ones (even if those dresses are obvious museums hits).
Yes! I was wondering aswell where are his former muses. Carmen was with the brand for a very long time. Weird.
And the collection was nothing special just another MK collection that's it.
