(CBS/AP) Michael Kors sees crimson and casual for Fall 2012, as evidenced by his runway show Wednesday morning in the tents at Lincoln Center at New York's Fashion Week.

The American designer used black, ivory and camel in plaids, tweeds, furs and knits for clothes that go from the ski lodge to night life.

The models were styled with fur vests over leather trenches and a slip dress underneath, or a Mongolian-fur vest with a chunky alpaca pullover all that seemed to say apres-ski.

The designer had some recommendations for shoppers for the fall.

"Mix up the texture," Kors said backstage before the show. "Mohair, tweed, plaid, faux and real fur, satin and lace."

But if a shopper had to choose just one thing, he'd go with a coat. "The coats and outerwear this season are outrageous."

Kors show was packed with celebs - Stacy Keibler, Anjelica Houston, Debra Messing, Paula Patton, Amber Heard, and Jessica Alba were all seen in the front row.
