To know Michael Kors is to know a very tanned man. Even during the February shows, his skin glows like a bright orange beacon backstage. On most, this would be, as they say, “not a good look,” but Kors has the sunny personality to back it up — plus, as he puts it, “Now that Valentino has retired…someone must wave the too tanned flag.” And wave it he does.
In fact, his love of a bronzed glow extends as far as his designs, it seems, since his latest offering, the “Palm Springs modern” resort collection, is cast in shades of aqua, geranium, black, white, and — you guessed it — suntan.
Tan chubby fur vests are styled atop tan ’70s pantsuits; tan is paired with Pepto pink and coupled with graphic black and white; ribbed tan sweaters are layered on tan leather skirts; even a caf-tan makes it into the mix. Inspired by the leggier styles? We suggest a swipe of Kors’ own leg bronzer so you can a little piece of the designer’s signature glow.

this is some kind of spaceship or something.
