opened his Wednesday show with a bang, starting off with a duo of models dressed head-to-toe in bright red ensembles. This season, the all-American designer delivered clothes that exuded a sense of strength and power with graceful ease.
For his fall collection, Kors channeled rugged elegance. He played around with masculine details on ladylike silhouettes—feminine sheath dresses were given a tough-girl edge with leather accents. Textures took center stage in this lineup, with fur, lace and tartan playing central characters.
Being a red-carpet staple, it's no surprise that the standouts from the collection were the evening gowns. The dresses were perfectly crafted, showing off his attention to detail in the drop waists and languid sequins. We're glad to see Kors return to his signature glamorous self, sexy necklines and luxurious fabrics in tow.
