Day 7 NYFW: Milestones & Super Mod Pedigrees

The introduction of the Michael Kors Fall 2011 collection marks an important occasion for the label. Photos from Getty Images.

HEAD’S UP: It’s now a tradition at VEVLYN’S PEN. The plan each day of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week is to give a roundup of the best (and worse where applicable) and most interesting, from shows to trends to sightings to the rather unusual/bizarre. This go round Yours Truly has a wingwoman in the person of Dame Francesca Simon. Even with two of us, though, we really, really can’t be everywhere. But we will be where something is happening and will keep you in the loop. Drum roll, please …

Day 7
(SOME of the players at the tents and elsewhere): Adrienne Vittadini, Alleegri, Anna Sui, Christian Cota, Douglas Hannant, Elie Tahari, Herchcovitch; Alexandre, Michael Kors, Milly by Michelle Smith, Nanette Lepoe, Odd Molly, Vacca, Yigal Azrouƫl

ELEGANCE& glamour, Michael Douglas&Catherine Zeta-Jones,
pragmatism&decadence, Bette Midler& Anjelica Huston, b&w. When celebrating 30 it is important to have just the right mix.

Michael Kors the brand – not the man – welcomed the milestone in high-gloss style yesterday with celebrities galore and frocks a-many. Seemingly, the designer went through three decades of lookbooks to craft the aesthetic for Fall 2001, which he describes in any number of words/phrases, from athleticism to sharp tailoring.

Meanwhile, at Adrienne Vittadini another type of celebration was ongoing. At the center of the festivities were modern muses in pieces that showcase the American contribution to the fashion conversation. The “mannequins,” who are never supposed to outshine the clothes, did so. Here is an instance, though, where an exception was acceptable and appropriate.

More from Michael Kors, Adrienne Vittadini and Day 7 shortly. Meanwhile see shows/highlights:
