Michael Kors Unveils AW14 Lookbook
American designer Michael Kors is going un-tucked for the lookbook of his latest collection. The new range offers a more relaxed look designed for daily attire.
“There’s not a waistband in any of the looks,” said Kors on introducing the AW14 line.
Track pants, jumpers and jackets have been created with luxurious fabrics and textures to deliver comfort combined with style. A significant feature of the track pants is a drawstring waist – a very different approach to the classic formal trouser.
Kors, from Long Island New York, dubbed the new range “Big Sur meets Big City,” a joining of “East Coast Polish with West Coast Ease.” The description represents diverse influences from different areas.
Following plans for a new flagship store in Soho, Manhattan, 54-year-old Kors has chosen the right time to show the variety of choice developing within his brand. The 22,000-square-foot store, which is planned to open in August 2014, will have a men’s department hosting the new designs.
“It’s the crushing of Wall Street,” said the CFDA International award-winner.
Kors went on to indicate that a lot of men have moved on from the structured power suit and will be very interested in the way traditional pieces have been reinvented in this collection.
The looks showcase luxury knitted roll neck jumpers, double-breasted jackets and fur puffer coats paired with laid-back drawstring trousers. The outfits have been finished off with Birkenstock sandals, worn with socks to give an effortless edge.
Autumn/winter 2014 from Michael Kors will be available towards the end of this year. Standalone stores from the brand can be found in Canary Wharf, Covent Garden and Westfield, White City.
