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.
