Fun facts: Kors is an avid traveler and collector of beautiful objects. Before his first trip to Bali, a friend warned him not to get roped into the Balinese-furniture obsession. After he returned, he ran into model and cosmetics creator Iman."Did you have the furniture issue?" she asked, confiding that she and her husband, David Bowie, had filled five crates of it to bring back home, only to find that it looked out of place outside Indonesia.Kors said he fought the urge to buy pottery and urns in Thailand to ship home but did purchase mint-green cashmere blankets in Italy. "You're in Capri, having sangria ... it seems like a reasonable purchase," he said, laughing at himself.
There was nothing to laugh at on the runway, though. His fall looks - lots of cashmere top coats, sweaters with oversize cowls and full-length cashmere knit skirts with fish tails - won the approval of the crowd, including one woman who said she could see herself pairing the long skirt with a short jacket for entertaining on Christmas or New Year's Eve at her family's rustic vacation home in Idaho.That's about as American as Kors could hope to be.
