Michael Kors is one of America’s most treasured designers. Known for his chic and contemporary sporty glamour approach to fashion. But this season it looked as if instead of being inspired by his native country, he looked to the United Kingdom to construct a collection that had a whiff of wartime elegance and practicality about it.

The sensation was subtle, but there nonetheless. The idea of a woman reworking pieces from a man’s wardrobe — his tweeds, his trench, his tuxedo — to create something new and uniquely hers. Feminine pieces that are able to be at the same time opulent and self-possessed.

How does she do this?

She transforms traditional outerwear so that instead of having to deal with the unwieldy notion of wearing a coat over the shoulders, she simply crafts them into cape coats. These were, hands down, the stars of Kors’s show. They had front row guests, all of whom have wrestled at one point or another with this sartorial issue, sighing in delight.

Other top transformations included a simple camel boyfriend sweater elevated by the addition of deep fox fur cuffs, a silk paisley print pajama set ashimmer with each paisley shape covered in delicate beading, a show-stopping tweed dress embellished with gold and russet-hued feathers (worn with a matching feather-covered bag) and a beautifully tailored tuxedo gown, crafted without sleeves to give it a modern grace.

This was a very considered Michael Kors collection. Unapologetically luxurious, yes, but done in a sensible (and sellable) way.
