Style.com sits in the Duchess' court:
"I want to rename pre-fall 'city,' " Michael Kors said. "It's our most urban season, the clothes every girl in our office wants to wear all year round." Taking "seasonlessness" as his mantra—and Helmut Newton models as his muses—the designer showed a black bathrobe coat with a fox collar over a chiffon blouse and stretch wool shorts, and a belted zip-front vest with a seamed skirt ("It's a suit but not a suit," he said)."
We were about to write that the Duchess churned out another collection of timeless looks, but we thought better of it because "churned" implies a lack of artistry and that's simply not true here. It's easy to dismiss Kors because he only works in classic mode, but what he does, he does very, very well. We think some of the silhouettes and hemlines are a little goofy (we simply can't look at a large peplum without thinking of Dynasty), but when he makes such beautiful, wearable, incredibly well-tailored clothing, he should be allowed his little flights of fancy now and then. It's simply beautiful clothes and who can't get behind that idea?
