Michael Kors Fall Winter 2022-2023. Review by Eleonora de Gray, Editor-in-Chief of RUNWAY MAGAZINE.
The collection was presented at the iconic music venue Terminal 5 in Manhattan, marking the music venue’s first fashion show, and the designer’s first live evening show. From the runway, which was illuminated to echo city lights, to a musical performance by Miguel, the show celebrated the allure and energy of New York City at night.
Starting with his Spring/Summer 2020 presentation, Michael has used the occasion of his runway shows to shine a light on his hometown. From a New York Restoration Project community garden to the theater district to Tavern on the Green and now Terminal 5, the designer has worked to reignite the spirit that drives New York City.
All big city glamour tonight celebrated elegance and grace of Michael Kors. Black, Pink and Yellow the most elegant shiluettes of this New York Fashion Week were shown tonight. The perfect and bright finish of this fashion week. Runway show featured a musical performance by Miguel LIVE from Terminal 5.
“For this show, I wanted to bring the excitement and energy of a night on the town to life—because I think right now, no matter where you are, we’re all craving that,” says Michael Kors. “And the clothes are really everything you need for stepping up, stepping out and making an entrance.”
New York City Mayor Eric Adams was among the A-list front row, which also included Blake Lively, Brooke Shields, Ariana DeBose, Lady Eliza and Lady Amelia Spencer, Addison Rae and more.
The runway included everything from short hemlines and thigh-high boots to dramatic hoods and skin-baring cutouts. Shades of camel, chocolate and banker grounded pops of electric fuchsia, orange and yellow while menswear tweeds, plaid and flannel played against glamorous paillettes and crystal embroidery for a wardrobe that was made for stepping up and stepping out.
