Michael Kors New Flagship Store in London
The American fashion label’s new boutique now sits in London with a fresh design concept.
Fashion label Michael Kors has opened the doors to its largest flagship store in Europe. Located in London’s Regent Street, the firm’s new store calls a historic building with an elegant façade its home. The interior boasts a sophisticated and modern design concept, blending the past with the future. “London is one of the world’s great fashion cities and an endless source of inspiration for me personally,” says Michael Kors on the store opening. “I’m thrilled to be opening a beautiful new flagship on Regent Street that represents everything we do and offers our customers the full world of Michael Kors.”
The flagship store’s entrance starts off with pale and weathered limestone that also acts as a runway of sorts through the rest of the store. Dark Macassar wood floors, brushed stainless steel shelves, Venetian wallpaper and Calcutta marble fixtures showcase the subtle changes in Michael Kors signature store aesthetic. The mix of soft neutrals against warm wood, textural finishes and luxurious materials, gives customers a glamorous and sophisticated place to shop.
Spread out across three levels, the 16,275 square foot flagship will carry every category of the designer’s products with areas dedicated to accessories, shoes, menswear and another just for women. “London is one of the world’s great fashion cities and an endless source of inspiration for me personally,” says Michael Kors on the store opening. “Our Regent Street flagship illustrates the evolution of the Michael Kors brand and the scope of our commitment to the business in Europe,” says John D. Idol, Chairman and CEO of Michael Kors. “This new European flagship enables us to present the full range of our luxury offering, including our exciting and fast-growing menswear line.”
