Michael Kors Pre-Fall 2011

Blue, red, black. Graphic lines and sharp tailoring made the Michael Kors Pre-Fall 2011 collection a shock to the system after the womanly silhouettes of Spring/Summer. With such a strict colour palette, the collection took on a precise gleam with a sort of ‘assemble these yourself’ mix’n’match vibe. The key to each look was the finely tuned layered pieces and dictated, abrupt hemlines.

Striped sweaters, slouchy tailored trousers and loafers combined to give some looks a laid-back masculinity, while this was interspersed with a 1920’s style under-the-knee flapper dress or a long red buttoned-down coat teamed with cropped subtly printed leggings.

There was a distinct mix of casual masculine styles blended with more womanly evening pieces and coats. Even the accessories merged man with woman, old with new - flat loafers, pointed heels, printed boots and those blue-lense sunglasses that completed some of the ensembles.

As pre-collections go, this one provides the wearer with a selection of chic casual tailoring with a Parisian classic edge and simple el dresses, and with the pop of red and blue colours used through-out (it was almost like wearing a pair of 3D glasses) these pieces make ingenious timeless casual and eveningwear.
