“Just when you thought you had everything, along comes a camouflage mink stole,” drawled Michael Kors, as a model glided into Holt Renfrew’s café in an outfit from his Fall 2013 collection.
The mini-show followed lunch for 20 or so top clients at Holt’s Cafe yesterday following a fête at his Bloor Street store on Wednesday night, with hostess Hilary Weston presiding over the affair in an aqua Oscar de la Renta tunic and pants.
Elsewhere there was much Michael Kors Spring 2013 about, including a dermatologist in a colourblock dress, and a capital markets trader a peony pink sheath. After tucking into sweet pea ravioli, lobster over fried green tomatoes and a sliver of cheesecake, there was an exodus downstairs to the racks of fall clothes available for special order.
Kors also used the event to remind everyone of his support of the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) with actress Halle Berry. The pair has created two watches, as part of the designer’s Watch Hunger Stop campaign. For each watch sold, 100 meals will be given to hungry children through WFP. “Halle announced she was pregnant on the Thursday, telling everyone it was a surprise, and we met to talk about our project the next day,” Kors recalled. “I asked her if this baby was really a surprise and she said, ‘I’m 46. IT WAS A SURPRISE.”
