(NEW YORK) Michael Kors, that master of merchandising, rarely fails to assemble a resort collection that's anything less than shoppable. His latest offering, which featured "a bit of Bali and a touch of Tokyo," focused on the notion of seasonlessness, beginning with a series of black-and-white seperates in shapes both familiar and foreign to Kors devotees. A black silk long-sleeved tunic paired with a slightly cropped pajama pant underscored this objective, while a white cotton sateen jacket with an elbow-length oragami sleeve will prove as a reminder that Kors is still harboring some pretty great tricks. Batik prints in parchement and indigo provided a seasonal update for the brand's signature sheaths, which were shown in one-shoulder asymmetric cuts with pleating or gathering at the waist. The stretch jersey dresses, especially a goddess gown in a catchy shade of laquer, just might prove most appealing for their ability to literally stretch from January to March to July--and beyond. The shoes, now produced in-house, were particularly strong, with three-strap platform heels and ankle-strap sandals adding an on-trend counterpoint to a wardrobe of nifty classics. The slightly sheer "featherweight" V-neck cardigan, made of silk and linen, best embodied this collection's versatility by darting off to the beach, decamping for a lunch or hunkering down in the office with equal aplomb.
