Michael Kors Spring 2012
Claiming his inspiration came from Africa this season, the collection from Michael Kors was absolutely perfect; I couldn't spot a bum piece through-out. Some pieces like the male sarong might prove a bit of a hard sell with the typical Kors man, but with some awesome accessories, the collection should prove a big hit at retail.
The prints were gorgeous and bright, evoking the shade of an African peninsula at times, at other times wild life. This was a collection that although playing into the whole cliché of Africa being romanticised by Westerners, (especially given the recent drought in Somalia) proves that the continent, as a point of reference can be powerful.
