New York fashion week: Celebrity designer Kors plays up signature looks
NEW YORK (REUTERS) - Designers from the celebrity world put modern touches to classics on the runways on Wednesday as New York Fashion Week was drawing to a close.
Michael Kors brought the pin-up model look up to date with pleats and fur, while Hollywood stylist-turned-designer Rachel Zoe freshened up sheaths and tailored trousers with a safari inspiration.
Zoe used stamped crocodile leather and paired tattered denim with tailored jackets, but kept the classically feminine in mind with a lace cut-out dress in blush pink and a mint-green laser-cut sheath that would suit her clients Cameron Diaz and Jennifer Garner.
Kors, who has become a fashion household name as a judge on the television show Project Runway, painted his classic looks with retro-urbane elegance.
