But I was a little bored this weekend, so I browsed through the pile of catalogs before taking them down to the basement and I have found some looks that I liked. The first few are from Michael Kors spring catalog.
For some reason, I was never smitten with Michael Kors. I am not sure why because it seems to be very close to my style. His colections usually include a lot of typical American sportswear separates with modern, clean lines, lots of neutrals and safari tones with shiny gold hardware details. I think it might be that shiny gold details that often make it look too flashy and somewhat ostentatious imo.
However, I really like the whole look above, the color and shape of the leather jacket, the Hamilton bag, mix of saddle, ecru and gray, the Aviator sunglasses. I could totally wear it all, just maybe with long pants, instead of shorts.
Here is another look from the catalog that I love. And I am strangely attracted to the tie-dyed jeans, both in blue and green, however my daughter strongly endorsed the green ones.
Currently all of the clothes are only available on pre-order, you can check it out here.
What is attractive about MICHAEL Michael Kors line is that is is still somewhat affordable with prices very comparable to J.Crew Collection. And it usually goes on significant sale if you wait long enough, plus, since it is available in many stores, you should be able to get some kind of promotion applied. Another thing is that it is all very wearable and practical. Even the styling of the catalogs can easily translate to irl looks, there is nothing over the top, shocking or clownish. Does it mean that it is too predictable?
I have to admit, I don't have any experience with the label since I never bought anything. So I would be very interested in your opinions.
What do you think? Have you bought anything from Michael Kors? Do you like anything from the Spring 2013 collection? What do you think about it in terms of style, quality and value.
Please share, it would be no fun without you!!!
