Kors also mixed in prim ensembles that called to mind "Mad Men" secretaries. Here, a shrunken blazer in checkered black and white is styled with a super-short matching mini dress.

Kors typically offers a smattering of knockout day dresses and evening looks each season, but spring really emphasized everyday separates, like these stripey black and white trousers and a simple black crewneck sweater.

On the whole, the collection was lacking in Kors' signature sex appeal. Thankfully, one look delivered a touch of allure. Karlie Kloss closed the show in a slinky black gown with revealing cut-outs at the ribs and bust.
