Designer Spotlight: Michael Kors

The quintessential Kors girl.

Very few designers strike a chord with me like Mr. Kors. His clean lines, earth-toned palette (with the odd shot of colour) and classic shapes speak to my own aesthetic and keep me coming back each season.

The MK brand in a few words: sleek, sophisticated and undeniably chic.

While wearing his clothes, shoes or handbags, I always feel confident and pulled together, in an understated, yet highly elegant and luxe sort of way. His designs offer the North American woman the epitome of classic style, but with just enough edge to keep it modern and fresh. This allows women of almost any generation to wear Michael Kors, and rightfully own it while doing so.

Don’t get me wrong. I highly believe that the act of dressing can be fun and experimental, with the mixing of shapes, colours and silhouettes. But when it comes down to it, like make-up, it should never completely distract from your natural beauty, but rather, harmonize with it. And when it comes to Michael Kors, it’s simply effortless to wear his clothes and accessories, without them taking over and wearing you.

That, in my opinion, is the mark of true talent, and is easily why he is one of my favourites.

Thank you Mr. Kors, and please do keep it up.
