NEW YORK -- Michael Kors's customers apparently like the retro look.
Their fondness for glamorously cut jackets and slacks resulted in $100,000 in sales for the designer at a Henri Bendel trunk show in Chicago last Friday.
Kors, who was at the show, named several of his designs after Thirties and Forties movie stars like Greta Garbo and Lana Turner.
Among the bestsellers: two fitted gabardine Garbo jackets, at $495; eight gabardine Hollywood pants, at $295; two fitted Lana jackets in linen, at $495, and three Empire single-breasted blazers in linen, at $495.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
