On Thursday, February 7, 2013, Kenneth Cole presented his Fall/Winter 2013 collection on the runway,  his first in seven years. And what an exciting return to the runway it was.“Since we were last on the runway so much has changed…This show will embrace the intrusive nature of social media,” his opening video stated, encouraging members of  the audience to post pictures on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook. For every tweet hashtagged #KCRunway by a @KennethCole follower, Kenneth Cole  will donate one dollar to amfAR.

Now to the fashions: From the holographic backdrop of New York City to catchy beats, the overall vibe Cole presented for fall was that of urban chic with oxymoronic symbols of tough and soft elegance. There were lots of leather, protective gear, moto jackets, open-toed boots,  paired with drapey fabrics. The palette consisted mainly of black-and-white, monochromatic grey,  with shades of moss and crimson. The verdict?  Definitely a “Like” !
