Should Fashion Be Seasonless?
We've all heard the term "seasonless dressing", and given this ever-changing wacky weather, the concept seems to make more and more sense. At least Michael Kors certainly thinks so.
The designer was in Toronto this week for a whirlwind visit to his Bloor Street boutique, as well as Holt Renfrew's flagship store. I was lucky enough to hear him speak to the Holts team while models walked in a few key looks from his latest collections, and when the spring '13 dresses ended and fall '13 appeared, MK quickly pointed out that the clothes didn't much change. Sure, there was a new theme and new colours, but we continued to see separates with long sleeves, no sleeves, and hemlines at every length. According to Michael, rather than announcing a new season, he'd rather simply say: Look, I made new clothes!
