Michael Kors showcased his spring/summer 2022 collection live at Tavern on the Green, New York. He displayed his urban romance style with sleek, feminine silhouettes.
Michael Kors stated in the show notes that “I believe we’re all ready for the simple, powerful pleasures provided by love – romantic, one another, and love for the places which sustain us which in my case is New York City. This collection is a tribute to all that I love about spring in New York City: the energy, the mix, the romance, and the laid-back glamour.”
It was a beautiful location, and Kors transformed the famous restaurant into a tranquil oasis of lush greenery. He added trees, overgrown vines, and a profusion roses. The perfect backdrop for Kors’s stylish collection, which featured crisp black and whites as well as “optimistic” pastel pinks and blues and neutral nude tones.
Kors has a spring/summer 2022 mood and is offering timeless, carefree, and optimistic styles. Fluid circle skirts and dresses with well-defined waists, bodycon sheath dresses, and slim, cropped Toreador trousers are just a few of the many options. There’s also a relaxed trench coat, a trim city short, and flirty Mini skirts and delicate Broderie Anlaise dresses.
The confidence was targeted at the next generation Michael Kors shoppers. Kendal Jenner took off the catwalk in a high-waisted, black pencil skirt and a bra with a bold red lip. Cashmere twinsets were worn with a bra underneath a cardigan. There was also a pink gingham mini-skirt suit with a cropped neck and pleated shorts.
Sequins are a must in a Michael Kors collection. They were used on suits, dresses, skirts and tops. Highlights included a shimmering metallic silver sheath dress with floral-lace hand embroidery, an elegantly tailored white trouser suit with an oversize blazer with crystal hand stitching and silver sequinned bandeau, as well as a black strappy, sequinned gown featuring cut-outs to either side.
Kors presented a kitten mule and a streamlined, slingback-style slingback for footwear. The bags that finished the look were a modernist bucket bag as well as a straw minaudiere.
Michael Kors launches a charity jumper to help raise funds for God’s Love We Deliver
Kors also highlighted God’s Love We Deliver as a charity “near and dear to his heart” with a black cashmere roll neck jumper that featured a red heart motif and hand motif.
The proceeds from the sale of this jumper will go to God’s love, which was founded in 1985 by Jane Best and Ganga Stone. The charity provides home delivery and cooks medically-tailored meals for people with HIV/AIDS and cancer in the New York City metro area.
Kors said, “For this collection I was really thinking about love and I immediately thought God’s Love We Deliver. In the 1980s, when AIDS was decimating NYC and the design community specifically, I began working with them for the first time.”
“Since then I’ve seen them being there for the city in the most difficult times, showing compassion, and delivering food to those who need it. The simple act of bringing food to someone is love.”
