Michael Kors Press Day
Last night, I was watching this movie of two girls sleeping in the dead of winter in a middle of nowhere, their lips frosted and their spirits sunken but their hope untarnished. The next day they woke-up with birds chirping, sun kissing their cheeks and flower buds blooming. It is spring!
Now that is the same feeling I want to transmit over the screen when I saw the Michael Kors Spring-Summer 2015 on my recent visit on their showroom. The color tones of yellow, purple, scarlet, green, turquoise and neutrals are so welcoming. Somewhat awakening from the dark colors of winter and transitioning to the wonderful palettes of spring and summer!
There are so much labor on hand sewn flower patches, embroidery and paillettes. He played so much on texture and the fluidity of the fabrics but not forgetting the American sartorial-flair. Kors who describe this collection as “optimistic chic” because according to him “chicness” was once define in the dark 50’s era as discouraging. He also said the some fashion people said that you have to be “sad” or “serious” to be chic. However, he wanted to redefine chicness and emphasized that “it’s not the case.”
In some case, it can be daunting but it’s better to turn this obscurity into rose-colored glasses! He was inspired by the silhouettes of the 50’s. He needed to translate this charming period into something adaptable into the busy-fast life that we have today. Like having a blank canvas and getting a piece of that from the past and incorporating that to the modern times and the result is a masterpiece. Just like having the best of both worlds!
For the record, I used to pass by the building of MK’s showroom and I wonder what was there inside? Now, I know.
