From Jay-Z’s “Empire State of Mind” to Julie Andrews’s “My Favorite Things,” the soundtrack for Michael Kors's latest New York Fashion Week show matched the theme of the FW18 collection, which seemed to be a playful mash-up of prints, textures, and motif. Kors threw in a bit of everything, which seems to be on trend this season. There was faux fur, tartan, leather, leopard print, florals, camo, slip dresses, varsity style sweaters, and classic fall trenches.

The designer also included luminous tracksuits, as seen on singer and actress Zendaya, who was sitting front row wearing a red version of the suit paired with one of the tan trench coats. The designer’s models were just as diverse as the looks, with men and women integrated into one show, a range of ages represented, appearances from veteran models and new additions to the industry, and an array of ethnicities and sizes represented by models like Ashley Graham and Sabina Karlsson. This collection was also notably his first with no animal fur, a turn that quite a few designers are making this season. 

Part of the collection included a collaboration between the designer and illustrator David Downton. Their capsule collection included a feminine hourglass dress painted with women’s portraits, worn by Bella Hadid, as well as a range of matching tote bags.
