Michael Kors Spring Summer 2012

African safari meets urban woman pretty much sums up this Michael Kors collection. It has got all of the safari references, but done in a chic American way, exactly how you’d expect Kors to do it. Aside from a few dodgy jumpsuits, this collection was another winner by the king of American sportswear.

I love…

that Kors can make a dirty safari outfit look sexy.

head to toe orange that doesn't look garish.

when Kors does camel. Although this season it is a bit darker, closer to a brown, but still ultra sophisticated.

swimsuits worn with belts.

I loathe…

the loser of the collection: a zebra onesie.

when Kors does ripped and torn. His woman is far to chic for that.

    I’m sorry but this is the first time i have to disagree with you A! :-(
    The whole show is just ugly been done before and offends me.
    Keep up the amazing reviews though. Read your blog nearly every day and got my friends hooked on it now too!

    Lots of love and admiration from the uk.

    I’ll admit I view most things Michael Kors with rose tinted glasses because I just love his simple, easy American style. It doesn’t bother me that what he did has been done before, he isn’t about reinventing the wheel every season, he is about modern classics. But yes, I will agree it wasn’t his best show ever.

    Thanks for the kind words! Looking forward to more comments from you!

    Great colours, cool swimwear and some very flattering silhouettes. But I totally agree about Kors doing tipped (and dirty-looking) clothes.
