Michael Kors’ love affair with hybrids continued this season with a fresh men’s wear collection full of new takes on everything from the suit to the track pant.
“The hybrid situation in men’s wear is more important this season,” he said. “We’re seeing traction. It’s what our guy is grabbing for.”
Case in point was a flared chambray pant paired with a fitted turtleneck, and a cardigan with geometric hardware over a zip-up polo that Kors said would work as well at the office as on the weekend. “He’s not changing bags,” the designer said.
Geometric patterns played a key role in eye-popping polka dots, pixellated patterns and checks in short suits and oversize repp ties that paid homage to David Hockney. The hybrid message was also evident in the tailored trouser jean, a windbreaker blazer and a flowy anorak.
