Michael Kors Announces New Approach To The Fashion Calendar

Michael Kors announced on Monday that he will not present his fashion show during New York Fashion Week in September. 

The Spring/Summer 2021 Michael Kors Collection will be presented sometime between mid-October and mid-November 2020, with the format of the presentation still currently under exploration.

“We are designing and will produce a Spring/Summer collection, which we will unveil at a later date,” says designer Michael Kors.

Michael Kors Collection will now present and produce only two collections per year, one for spring/summer and one for fall/winter.

This move is an effort to create a more streamlined approach on the sales floor.

Personally, I think this is a good great idea, as the sheer number of looks that are presented pre-COVID was getting a little out of control, and that’s not from a “trying to remember all the looks” perspective.

“I have for a long time thought that the fashion calendar needs to change,” says Kors. “It’s exciting for me to see the open dialogue within the fashion community about the calendar—from Giorgio Armani to Dries Van Noten to Gucci to YSL to major retailers around the globe—about ways in which we can slow down the process and improve the way we work. We’ve all had time to reflect and analyze things, and I think many agree that it’s time for a new approach for a new era.”

And so say all of us.

    This seems like a great approach to things. It’ll be interesting to follow.

    A much better approach. Way too many collections being put and you can’t have great collections that way.

    awesome. I hope that becomes the norm. too many collections just being ‘thrown’ out.
    be nice if these designers have some time to think it all through.

    I wonder whether Anna will have a ‘environmentally conscious’ Met Gala theme 2022 after all this discussion about change.

    On a selfish level, I do enjoy looking at new collections but I totally appreciate the need to cut back on production and slow the churn in fashion. From what I’ve read the expectations for rapid new stuff plus timing of drops on shop floors/websites were out of sync with shopping habits and too much pressure for designers so it’s much healthier for all, including the planet.
    Plus, so many beautiful items don’t get worn. I do have more of Outnet budget than Net-a-porter budget so discounts were appreciated, ha.
