Michael Kors Fall 2017 - Runway Review
February 17, 2017
Not a single miniskirt in sight.
To the accompaniment of a 20-piece live orchestra belting out Annie Lennox, Michael Kors presented his most diverse runway to date—one that included plus-sized model Ashley Graham rocking a charcoal ribbed tank dress with a silver fox shrug, 43-year-old supermodels Amber Valletta and Carolyn Murphy and the multiethnic Ysaunny Brito.
For his 36th fall collection, Kors showcased a range of shapes from petite to curvy to tomboy—in the process showcasing that glamour knows no one body type. In examining the sensuality of the season, Kors sought to explore how he could spread his message of “body equality” beyond the runway and onto the streets. The answer? Be sneaky. Makeup, for example, was minimal. And long sleeves for the majority of the looks.
The heavenly collection was heavy on comfy sweaters, camel coats and colorful furs. Kors knows fabulous outerwear like the back of his hand. But there was plenty of evening glamour: a number of dresses were embedded with crystals. Kendall Jenner closed the show in a drop-dead gorgeous strapless, black fringed dress with tonal sequin embroidery.
