London’s Regent Street is home to some of the biggest names in fashion – Burberry and Karl Lagerfeld both have stores here. Now, American designer Michael Kors is getting in on the action. His new flagship store on Regent Street has just opened and is the designer’s largest European store so far. The flagship has been given Kors’ new design concept, with features including Macassar wood floors and tables, shelves of brushed stainless steel, Venetian wallpaper and Calacatta marble fixtures.
The Regent Street flagship measures 16,275 sqft. and will carry every category of Michael Kors product.
“London is one of the world’s great fashion cities and an endless source of inspiration for me personally,” says Michael Kors. “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.”
As well as Kors’ womenswear and accessories, the flagship also offers the designer’s full menswear range. The store’s lower level is home to the men’s shop, which features custom-built, polished and blackened stainless steel fixtures with gray smoked mirrors and gray-marble display cases, as well as black-and-white photography and a full-size pool table.
“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.”
Kors also recently opened a new regional flagship store in Yorkshire’s Meadowhall shopping centre.
