We’re only a few days and a few dozen shows in to Fashion Month, but the first clear color trend has already emerged in quite an obvious way: Come fall, you’re going to be seeing red. Michael Kors Fall 2011 followed that theme in a beautiful and uniquely American way, shooting a neutral collection through with a bursts of bright, combustible vermillion.
The collection was admirable beyond just the red, though. Kors’ outerwear in particular shone brightly, with everything from calf-grazing fur vests to floor-length wool overcoats to a stunning carmel crocodile short trench punctuating monochromatic neutral looks in shades from charcoal to chocolate. The feeling of the separates was comfortable and easy but still totally put-together and incredibly chic, which means that Kors likely accomplished exactly that he set out to do. We’re the real winners here, though, for being the future owners of his beautiful clothing.
