For resort 2012, Michael Kors is sending his girls surfing. Mini dresses resembled wet suits--right down to the big contrast zippers up the front--and full length dresses with thigh high slits were done in neon neoprenes and accessorized with sporty fanny-pack-ish belts. While the color palette--fluoro yellows and hot pinks recalled '90s LA Gear (at least to me)--the prints and silhouettes were decidedly '60s. There were bold zebra prints on little shift dresses and sexy one-piece suits. Evening looks--cropped jackets with cropped pants--were coated in gold paint. Kors himself called the collection "surf Jackie," according to Cathy Horyn. As always, Kors delivers the perfect soundbite, and a pretty perfect collection.
