It appears that Michael Kors has every media angle covered… Having just displayed the goods for his acclaimed Autumn Collection at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in the Big Apple, mid Feb, he can also be found on the judging panel for the television show Project Runway and as a regular contributor for Harpers Bazaar where he’s interviewed various Hollywood stars including Liz Taylor.
He certainly likes to keep himself busy! Kors’s stellar career bears witness to this. From the launch of the label in 1981, the designer has had his foot on the accelerator right up to the present day.
Known for his chic, luxurious all-American sportswear, Michael Kors began with a simple women’s collection and now boasts a very successful men’s line, and a stunning accessories range incorporating everything from handbags and belts to eye wear and watches.
The Kors label is very much focused on the fashionable jet set, with advertising campaigns depicting models like Carmen Kass on Safari in Africa, boarding a plane and kicking back on a yacht. The designers appeal is not lost on the A-list and an endless, glittering list of celebs have been seen clothed in Michael Kors – Glamazons such as Charlize Theron, Liv Tyler, Jennifer Lopez and Anjelica Huston to name just a few. He also has a number of film credits to his name, designing clothes for Rene Russo in the fabulous remake of ‘The Thomas Crown Affair’ and clothing Cate Blanchett for the little known movie ‘Bandits’.
Like his clothes, Michael Kors watches are classy, elegant and fit for the A-list whilst always remaining faithful to the company’s high class leisure ethos. This year’s pattern ‘a la mode’, tortoiseshell, is prevalent throughout his recent collection and unlike some conventional brands, Kors’ timepieces are fresh and totally novel. Michael Kors evidently likes to play with shapes and textures and he is on fine form, splashing bone and snakeskin, textured gold and diamante across the collection. There really is plenty to choose from and should you be conscientious enough to purchase one, you can be assured of having the nattiest wrist wear this side of the pond.
