The theme of Michael Kors‘ latest resort collection was “opulent minimalism” and we couldn’t have put it greater ourselves. We’re told he was inspired by a recent trip to Turkey, but perhaps his recent multi-billion dollar valuation also inspired the opulence.
Possibly tasked with discovering a way to make resort–which tends to be much more casual and wearable than principal collections–feel luxurious and particular, Kors did wealthy fabrics with ornate facts in jewel tones and golds in easy, resort season-appropriate silhouettes.
Plus, resort, in reality, is a tricky season considering that not everybody spends the winter months in resorts. So, even though there had been some (very cute) swimwear and sandal choices for the beach-bound, Kors also offered some fantastic transitional pieces like coats, pants and knits–as well as pieces that would work anywhere.
Last night, Carine Roitfeld and Sarah Jessica Parker, plus a handful of extremely-respected artists and journalists, convened at the Museum of Contemporary Art for the Gordon Parks Centennial Gala. Held in the museum’s sprawling atrium, the event celebrated the perform of the former Life magazine photographer, who passed away in 2006 at 93. “I knew Gordon my complete life, he was truly the initial journalist I’d ever met,” explained the night’s master of ceremonies, Anderson Cooper, whose mother Gloria Vanderbilt was a great friend of Parks. “He really took individuals to locations they’d never been before and gave a voice to men and women who didn’t have access to power.”
A lot of of Parks’s peers were also in attendance, each and every holding a excellent deal of respect for the late photographer. “He had a excellent range,” Annie Leibovitz noted. “There is this wonderful story about him coming out of the offices of Life with two assignments: the initial to capture gang warfare in Harlem and the other to do Paris Fashion Week. He was the consummate photographer.” And Peter Beard, who when shared an agent with Parks, described his perform as “absolutely straightforward and fabulous, no gimmicks at all.”
Even though the festivities didn’t quite reach a capstone till Karl Lagerfeld arrived—with at least two footmen carrying bottles of green juice for him to sip on later in the evening. Suddenly bombarded by photographers and a mob of fans, Lagerfeld hurriedly told ELLE that Parks was “a fantastic sartorialist.” As for those 15-seater AgustaWestland VIP helicopters he’s designing, Lagerfeld provided this update: “I’m [nevertheless] in the middle of it, but a single single man has currently bought ten of them.”
