A brand new Michael Kors shop opened a few days ago, the American designer’s second in the UK. It certainly is a sight for sore eyes, particularly at night when you notice how beautifully illuminated it is inside. Handbags, shoes, sunglasses, purses and other fashion goodies are all very tastefully presented. Easily one of the better stores to open up on Regent Street in recent years.
He told Vogue.co.uk: “I love indulgent caviar but I also enjoy a delicious pizza – they’re just different experiences. The same goes for my new store. The point of the shop is to mix things up and nowhere does this like the UK. It’s all about mixing couture with the high street, the high street with a piece from Portobello. The simple truth is lots of designers talk about this but not a lot actually do. It’ll be a fun, light and quick way of getting the Michael Kors experience under one roof.”
This year Michael is celebrating 30 years in the fashion business. What a milestone. It was in 1981 when he started his label and launched its first collection. Here are my photos:
