(NEW YORK) A pastel-colored, floral collection with Kors’s signature posh sportswear touch. For Spring 2008, Kors juxtaposed romantic and athletic styles channeling Slim Aarons’s American elegance. The mix of casual, beach-worthy outfits, and the endless parade of impressionistic florals in lime, tangerine, and iris could get repetitive, but Kors managed to infuse them with the right amount of elegance and energy. He always matches caftans, bathing suits, and soft cashmere sweaters with oversized satchels and duffels. This season, there were gold metallic satchels and clutches which accentuated wide-leg pants, striped caftans. and drapy, fruity dresses. A flamingo crystal jersey dance dress on Raquel Zimmermann and violet cashmere T-shirt gown underneath a violet cashmere cardigan coat were refined and youthful enough to be worn by any customer, while a brushstroke black and white floral asymmetric column and black crystal jersey jumpsuit could only work on one of Kors’s beloved socialites. There were some great Kors classics, but the yummy chiffons and wools really stood out in this collection.
