Michael Kors Collection and All the Best Looks from New York Fall 2021
New York Fashion Week may look a bit different this year, but like New York itself, fashion is certainly not ready to sleep. Ahead, see what designers have in store for fall 2021. We may not know what the world will look like then, but we can know that we’ll look great in it.
In the Theater District, marquees lit up at the Shubert Theatre and Music Box Theatre (for the first time since COVID-19 forced Broadway to go dark more than a year ago) for Michael Kors’s 40th anniversary runway show. A triumphant celebration of the hustle and drive that continues to animate the city’s fashion and performing arts industries, Kors, a New Yorker and a musical theater lover, staged his Fall 2021 collection with a multi-generational cast of supermodels who have walked in his shows over the years.
Shalom Harlow lead a procession down West 45th Street, a hit parade of Kors icons including lean trouser suits, cozy shearlings, luxe knits, leather trenches, tailored coats and sequin gowns in a city neutral palette of ivory, smoke, charcoal, midnight, and camel cut through with pops of red, zebra, and shimmering metallics. The models found their way into the Shubert Theater where—sitting six feet apart—they watched Grammy-nominated singer and songwriter Rufus Wainwright perform. As Kors took the stage with Wainwright, the message was clear: the show must go on. –Alison S. Cohn
