With the conviction that women can be “sexy and sporty at the same time,” Michael Kors delivers a style ethos that is successfully consistent, and more importantly, breezy and fabulous. His casual attitude toward fashion, given his choice uniform of jeans, a black tee and jacket with a distressed bag, might entail a relaxed vision. However, the way in which Michael Kors runs his business, with impermeable vision, proves the contrary. Epitomizing minimal yet elegant fashion, polished, chic yet ultimately relaxed glamor, Michael Kors is a leading American luxury lifestyle brand with an influential global presence, offering women’s accessories, footwear, clothing and fragrance collections under the signature Michael Kors Collection, KORS Michael Kors and MICHAEL Michael Kors labels.
The designer has been the recipient of numerous industry awards, including The Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA), Womenswear Designer of the Year in 1999 and Menswear Designer of the Year in 2003. Amongst his other accolades, Kors was awarded The Accessories Council ACE Award for Designer of the Year in 2006 and Fashion Group International’s Star Honoree at its annual Night of Stars Awards in 2009. In 2010, the CFDA acknowledged Kors with their most prestigious honor, the Lifetime Achievement Award, which was presented by American Vogue, Editor in Chief, Anna Wintour. He also received the Award of Courage from the Foundation for AIDS Research (amfAR) in 2011.
For Spring Summer 2014, the MICHAEL Michael Kors collection delivered an aesthetic that exemplified his vision for real world clothing. One that had runway attendees budgeting for most, if not all, of the pieces from the forties, beach-style inspired, collection. The clothes are sporty yet romantic, sharply tailored yet soft and fluid at the same time. Linen daywear shirts are perfect for the little ones, while smart pleating in khaki pieces deliver an effortless smart casual look for both men and women. Accessories follow in this neutral palette, echoed in the hues of the sand, beachside fun in the sun, and endless summer days. Remember though, that neutral never entails boring, as the nautical element of navy and white stripes enlivens these neutral palettes with a fashionable edge. The collection is highlighted further with touches of understated luxury that include gorgeous tortoiseshell heels and reptile-skin totes complimented by organic elements like woven canvas and rope that exemplify clutches and shoes.
