Before the sunny Michael Kors show, we caught up with the designer, one of the blessed few to have a lush garden in New York. Kors gave all the dirt on his green thumb…

How are you?
I'm in a sunshine state of mind! The collection is all about my beach house and my garden here in New York. I'm lucky enough to have an amazing garden in the city. It's the whole idea of the easiness of the clothes that you would wear around the home, but still very glamorous and sexy. It's a beautiful, sunny day outside so it's kind of all working together.
And how does your garden grow?
Oh I have amazing peonies, zinnias, lilacs! It's really a veritable jungle, and so much of it became a part of this collection.
Any departures for you this collection?
I've never had a show with no black! No stilettos, either. We did a lot of handsmocking, which is so tactile---it just makes you want to reach out and touch it.
You love the warm weather, but how hot is too hot?
I'm probably the only person out there who thinks Florida in July and August is just terrific. Shorts and a pair of flip flops and consider me a happy guy.
