UNITED STATES / New York: Michael Kors takes over Rockefeller Center
September 05 2011
The American designer opens a new flagship store in the heart of his hometown.
When the former Kenneth Cole flagship store closed its doors in April 2011, it was soon announced that the Michael Kors brand, which celebrated its 30th anniversary earlier this year, would take over the space at Rockefeller Center. This new “lifestyle flagship store” features accessories, ready-to-wear clothing and footwear from all three of the designer’s lines, Michael Kors, Michael Michael Kors and Kors Michael Kors, and occupies 7,000 square feet. The décor, which maintains an evident level of luxury typified by the world of Michael Kors, is similar to that of the brand’s other stores that now amount to approximately 175 worldwide: 15-foot celings, white marble flooring, macassar wood displays, bright lights and zebra hide accents.
