Michael Kors Spring/Summer 2012, New York

Singapore will get to have a taste of classic American Sportswear when Michael Kors debuts in the next few months at Scotts Square. Just five days ago I attended the Spring/Summer 2012 show held at the Lincoln center tents during New York Fashion Week and also visited his latest store at Rockefeller Center in midtown Manhattan. For the collection – which will not arrive until early next year – Michael clearly had Africa in his mind when he designed all these safari inspired pieces. You can spot different types of animal prints, tie-dye fabrics, accessories like crocodile-strap bags and gladiator sandals. It is overall a very exotic but laid-back “AfriLuxe” look.

With Rachel Zoe before the show, she is looking fabulous even after baby!

After the show I visited the Michael Kors store at rockefeller center for a media shopping spree. The store is super chic and spacious and if you are wondering how much Michael Kors items are going to cost in Singapore – it is not as pricey as you would have thought. A leather iPad case goes for US$128.00 which is around SGD$150.00, and the clothes are around the US$100 – US$500 range.
