Michael Kors presented a collection featuring cosy and chic pieces fit for a country getaway on Wednesday.

The fashion designer debuted his fall/winter 2020 line at the American Stock Exchange as part of New York Fashion Week, with guests including Blake Lively, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Issa Rae, and Dove Cameron.

The collection was inspired by country living, relaxation, and the idea of escaping from the hustle and bustle of the city, with the venue transformed into an abstract country house and the show featuring a performance from country musician Orville Peck.

“I think we can all relate to feeling a little too plugged in sometimes,” Kors said in a statement. “This collection explores the idea of getting away from it all, of taking some time to escape into nature and refuel. And of course, since we can’t all move to the countryside, we looked at how you can take that feeling of privacy and cosiness and imbue it with the polish and luxury you need in an urban environment.”

The range was comprised of chic and cosy outfits with a strong equestrian feel. It featured a muted colour palette dominated by camel, black and grey, with the occasional pop of red, yellow, or orange. Suede, leather and shearling outerwear were a main feature, as were capes, hoods, scarves, cowl necks or turtlenecks, riding pants, and knit dresses.

Besides the relaxed silhouettes, Kors also offered up sharp tailoring and evening dresses, all teamed with boots.

Standout looks included a brown and white cow-print coat, a red gown with matching blazer worn by Adut Akech, a plunging sparkly black dress modelled by Bella Hadid, as well as a gunmetal grey gown with a pleated skirt worn by Kaia Gerber, which was paired with a chunky black scarf.
