Michael Kors has created another successful collection for fall 2012. The red and black themed line is similar to a person with multiple personalities. One day, you like the laidback look of buffalo check ponchos and wool skirts. The next, you're a downtown girl with dark shades, wearing black and grey from head-to-toe; and the next, you’re an aspen ski bunny in need of another fur hat, coat or boots! In other words, there’s a look that anyone can enjoy in his ’12 collection.
The contemporary adds of black leather, raccoon tail bag accessories, and asymmetric fox fur collars kept the town & country themes connected to their luxurious roots. If this collection had a slogan attached to it, it would have been ‘The Bigger the Better’ or ‘The More the Merrier."
The menswear collection mirrored that of the womenswear, with lots of check patterns in red and black, as well as black and white, big mittens, and lots and lots of fur: Mongolian lamb, fox, raccoon, shearling, you name it. The line was consistent in the themes where the only confusion lie in one leather vest/harness worn over a black on black shirt and pants. Although it looked more like it belonged in one of Alexander Wang’s downtown-style collections, the rest of Kors’ line was too fabulous that we can let the whoopsie daisy of this piece slide by, just this one time!
