How do you get Hollywood royalty like Michael Douglas, wife Catherine Zeta-Jones, Bette Midler and Angelica Huston to be up and at ‘em, bright and early on a Wednesday morning? Well, let’s just say it helps if your first name is Michael, and your last name is Kors. Celebrating 30 years of American luxury, Kors created 64 fall looks that nodded to his design aesthetic over the years: seventies disco glitter, eighties athleticism and nineties minimalism. Skin tones of nude, suntan and cocoa mixed with dusty shades of blush, plum and mauve (the colour of the week). Throw in a few graphic splashes of crimson, long, lean lines and a dream team of models (Carmen! Jourdan! Daria! Karolina! Frankie!) and you’ve got the hottest ticket in town. Even Kors’s show invitation (bearing a vintage shot of the designer himself) seems to say let the good times roll. Here’s to the next 30!
