Michael Kors Pre-Fall 2016 For Lookbook Friday

Fashion - [email protected] - April 15, 2016

Michael Kors may not be able to carry a tune, but he has definitely brought sexy back with his Pre Fall collection for 2016. Minimalism, relax fit silhouettes and the sporty chic aesthetic still region the runways but that does’t mean that we have to forgo our sexy side.

Michael Kors may not be able to carry a tune, but he has definitely brought sexy back with his Pre Fall collection for 2016. Minimalism, relax fit silhouettes and the sporty chic aesthetic still region the runways but that does’t mean that we have to forgo our sexy side. This collection with it’s sultry lady like buttoned up sex appeal is at once romantic and daring. Lace figures prominently through out the collection and can be seen on a number of knee skimming pieces. It is also intermixed with pleats, layered over other fabrics, and used as detailing on hems, but a stand out for me is the gorgeous lace “go go” dress with the silver over lay. Ooh La La, Megan would drive Don “mad” in this beautifully sensuous dress. Here they have styled it with a pair of crystal studded beach shoes. But I could see this with sheer black tights and silver pumps. Yes? Another favorite is this two toned black and peach two piece. Perfect for the office and for stepping out after work. But if the sporty chic thing is your go to, then the floral trousers and pull over should suffice. Black also dominates this collection and is occasionally broken up with pale peach, a golden green with an almost metallic feel and silver. Yes some may say black is the lazy girls approach to fashion but I for one love it. And it is even better with lace. And this reminds me, I think it is high time for another trip to the stunning Michael Kors store in Soho, who’s with me?

The beautiful shapes and sculptural approach, attention to detail, and the innate ability to marry romance with sophistication are the elements that make this collection so breathtaking and unforgettable

Wow this is hands down one of the coldest Fashion Weeks I have ever experienced. And I almost didn’t make it to this show. Due to the extreme cold there have been a lot of problems with the commuter trains, as luck would have it a train was disabled and all train service was suspended—great. I kept checking the site, and about an hour or so later train service was restored. So I called the cab company and thought I would be on my way, but nope, there were no cabs, due to the suspension all the cabs were in Manhattan. Ugh. So I thought I would take a stab at Uber, I didn’t think they operated in suburbia but they do and a driver showed up at my door six minutes later! And I was on my way.

So glad I made it this show, this has to be one of Michael De Paulo’s most sophisticated collections thus far. Held at the Agora Gallery the stark white walls and wonderful mural made for the perfect backdrop to show case this sumptuous and impeccably curated lineup. Michael describes the collection for Fall 2016 as a modern day Marie Antoinette—with geometric beading, exquisite embroidering, layers of feathers and tulle, and silhouettes that feature both body conscious pieces as well as the more traditional ball gown shape, it effortlessly encompasses an old world splendor with a modern day girl aesthetic. The beautiful contours and sculptural approach, attention to detail, and the innate ability to marry romance with sophistication are the elements that make this collection so breathtaking and unforgettable. This is for the modern girl that doesn’t just want to make an entrance, she wants to make a statement. A statement that says she has taste, style and knows who she is, and is not afraid to let the world know.
