The night before Michael Kors presented his Resort 2014 collection to editors and buyers in New York, he tweeted an almost axiomatic declaration: "Caftans look chic on everyone."
The next day, Kors delivered on that promise with a caftan that really would look good on everyone, cut from a slightly sheer ocelot print and decorated with a sprinkling of sequins for added glamour. The rest of the collection, called Palm Springs Modern, was created in a muted color palette of white, black, and tan, with splashes of blue, pink, and animal prints mixed in. Shapes from the '70s get updated here: Flared, tailored trousers skimmed the floor, and so did a number of colorblocked maxi dresses.
But because Resort collections have to provide something for lounging poolside in Palm Springs and something warm enough to wear on the tarmac at JFK, Kors included a warm pink sweater, a fur vest, and a few leopard-print coats for good measure.
