Michael Kors men’s wear, more than any other New York collection, aligned perfectly with the rustic-seaside sensibility that dominated the European men’s shows. Key items included hand-knit hemp sweaters, linen blazers and trousers, ideally in white, and leather jackets in nutty medium browns. Kors took the overall loungewearlike ease a step beyond, incorporating blue pajama stripes and heather-gray sweats. A lot of fabrics were crinkled, but the texture variations throughout the show kept upending assumptions about what needs pressing and what doesn’t. A cable-knit sweater, turned on the bias, also came as a nice surprise.
