Michael Kors comes in from cold with easygoing menswear collection
Look ma, no waistbands. That's the attitude of the latest menswear collection from Michael Kors, which recently debuted to the fashion press and will arrive in stores in the fall.
Kors features loads of sweats and body-hugging track pants in luxurious cashmere, suede and flannel fabrics — all with drawstring waists. The pieces are made for lounging and could give new meaning to casual Fridays. There's hardly a traditional pair of belt-loop pants in sight.
Kors labels the collection "Big Sur meets Big City," mixing East Coast polish with a relaxed West Coast ease. Indeed, a tailored blazer is paired with track pants, an untucked white shirt and alpaca V-neck sweater, while a navy officer's coat is casually thrown over gray sweats. A puffy "sleeping bag" coat and cardigans — almost as big as bathrobes — would be great for curling up on a wintry day.
With Dallas' recent cold temperatures, the collection's mohair turtlenecks, cashmere cableknit sweaters, double-breasted pea coats, heavy jackets with fur-lined hoods, slouchy wool caps and oversized scarves would come in handy too.
And, yes, in the world of Kors, you can wear socks with sandals.
