Fashion Week SS08: Michael Kors

If so many spring collections have been "Deauville," Michael Kors' could be called The Swimmer, after the 1968 film starring Burt Lancaster. Preppy fashions abounded, from women's Lilly Pulitzer-esque pink and green prints to men's Bermuda shorts in outrageous (by preppy standards) brushed gold khaki. It was a fun collection in the classic American style.

The show was immensely popular and packed to capacity, so much so that late arrivals were turned away. Below, the guests.

This lady is winning my vote for style icon of NY Fashion Week, Spring Season '08. Each day she sports her very own distinct look, one that involves tunics and lots of color. Truly chic.

Hamish Bowles and pants

Maybe that one should be "pants accompanied by Hamish Bowles."

Hey there! Love your blog -- it's very inspiring, especially since I have just started one on InStyle.com -- not such an easy task! Anyway, YES, that IS me and Brant. He sleuthed out the fact that you and he may have shared a former employer??! Anyway, thanks for posting the pix!

Hi Katrina - Glad you like it - Brant has a funny expression in that one, but you all were the most stylish couple there! Yes, Brant and I are members of a special club. We should all have a reunion one day, maybe in a church basement with bad coffee and cigarettes, where we all identify ourselves only by our first names. Aie! Good luck at InStyle!
