Michael Kors’ Fall/Winter 2023 runway show was a tribute to urban bohemia, a celebration of the women who have influenced the designer’s work and the spirit of Greenwich Village. The collection showcased timeless glamour, featuring long sweeping coats, dramatic capes, leggy dresses, skirts, and shorts. Kors played with proportions, using slashes, slits, and lean knits to frame the body, and hip-slung belts to shift the eye. The palette ranged from shades of graphite and charcoal to warm tones of chocolate and chestnut, with monochrome moments of merlot and forest.
The accessories had a softer attitude, with fringed clutches, relaxed messengers, streamlined bucket bags, and boots grounding almost every look. The mood was set by models like Vittoria Ceretti, Liya Kebede, Irina Shayk, Adut Akech, Amber Valletta and others walking down the birch-and-mirror-lined runway as a live orchestra played alongside recorded tracks of Jefferson’s “Somebody to Love” and “Go your own way” by Fleetwood Mac creating high bass multi dimensional soundtrack.
The show took place in the West Village, an ode to the rule-breaking spirit that has characterized the neighborhood for decades. And in the designer’s own word, for this collection he kept in mind the things that had influenced him ever since his adoloscence during 70s, the women and the neighborhood that influenced him, and the combination of big city glamour and bohemia that he found in Greenwich Village at that time.
The A-list front row included Gloria Steinem, Kate Hudson, Katie Holmes, and Mindy Kaling, along with New York Governor Kathy Hochul, Lea Michele, Ellen Pompeo, Isabelle Adjani, Beatrice Grannò, Simona Tabasco, and more.
