Things are taking a turn for the best as far as the Michael Kors label is concerned. With high profile clients like Michele Obama, the brand’s popularity has skyrocketed this year to the point that it topped Bing’s 2012’s ‘most searched fashion brands’ list. Whether the position of superiority will be maintained in the upcoming year remains to be seen, especially since the pre-fall 2013 fashion choices presented seem significantly different from the holiday 2012 offerings.

The Michael Kors pre-fall 2013 collection has Maggie in the “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof” as inspiration. A host of celebs have influenced the designer’s thoughts and creative vision: “Scarlett takes me to Elizabeth Taylor, which takes me to Ava Gardner, and to Madonna. It’s the idea of sugar and spice,” he stated. Indeed, the collection features both sweet and delicate elements which are contrasted with bold ones that act as the ‘spice’ of the looks.

Distinguishable ’50s vibes are reflected in the feminine alternatives endorsed. The spirit of the era is revived through fabulous interpretations of the character that defines the times. Lace, leather, peplums, gloves matched perfectly with the clutch and the pumps to ensure the style direction is properly emphasized or colorful fur pieces were only some of the elements that attracted attention instantly during the show. Knee-length skirts, high waist pants and body con dresses are some of the must-haves of the new collection.

Reinventing the past can be a surprising source of insight and inspiration. Boldness can take many forms depending on the desired impact and the new collection is filled with plenty of spectacular alternatives worth taking into account if you’re planning to make the most of the new season and even embrace a new style direction, the collection can sure be a great alternative worth exploring and finding useful style insights.
