Mad Man | Michael Kors.

I hate fashion trend stories. I hate runway photos for the most part too. I just don’t get much out of them generally. Over the past few years I have had a fixation with “The Ivy League Look” of boxy Sack suits and skinny ties. One of the first posts on A.C.L. was about the TV show Mad Men and my obsession with the style of the era. That being said, I have never really been too interested in Michael Kors. This season is different. For Autumn Winter 2008, Michael sent a bunch of guys dressed like Donald Draper and Roger Sterling down the runway and I loved it. The collection was The Man in the Gray Flannel Suit. While I was looking at the runway photos, I found a trend and did a trend story. I never thought I would see the day when the dusty old Sack suit crowd would be influencing designers like Michael Kors. The question is, will his fall advertising campaign carry the inspiration further? Will he feature models stepping out of a 1961 Lincoln Continental instead of the usual private jet? Only time will tell…
