Ready-to-Wear. Ready to Go.
That’s Michael Kors’ handle for the buy-now runway phenomenon that’s infiltrating the fall season. And he’s in. The collection he will show on Wednesday will include an eight-piece capsule of rtw, shoes and handbags that will be available immediately on the brand’s Web site and at its Madison Avenue Michael Kors Collection store. An in-store event will highlight the capsule that day.
“My attitude is, she doesn’t pay attention to seasons anyway, so why not grab and go?” Kors said. He noted that knitwear makes a great deal of sense for his first foray into the arena. He’s showing a gray cashmere sweater and matching short skirt decorated with cabochon studs for a look he “rock ‘n’ roll Park Avenue moment.”
There are also a studded camera bag and mary janes with the hardware covering the toe and heel. “People think mary janes — she’s so demure,” Kors said. “She’s not demure in these. She’s kind of like Chessy Rayner meets Courtney Love.” He will offer two additional bag and shoe styles as well.
