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.

    As far as I’m concerned, Michael can do no wrong. I love his clothing and take on classic, American sportswear. It always has a fun twist to it.
    That floor length, black puffer coat is hands down my favorite. It would go perfectly with the Chanel cocoon bag that I want.
    He does fur just as well as Giles Deacon and I love it.
    That fur bag which I am sure is probably only for the runway is INSANE!
    By the way, in case no one hasn’t noticed, I am a HUGE Michael Kors fan (waaaay before Project Runway). So, all comments may taken wiht a grain a salt.

    Coming from Europe, I had never heard from Mr. Kors, he is unknown there – then I watched Project Runway.
    He is doing a very good job on the show. And I like his collection, it is very chic.
