LONDON — Michael Kors is taking up residence on Old Bond Street with a one-of-a-kind townhouse store, “an homage” to the British capital, a city he has long loved.
The boutique stocks men’s and women’s Michael Kors Collection, and neighbors on the street include Valentino, Gucci, Prada, Damiani and Bottega Veneta. The cozy unit, in a Georgian townhouse, spans 2,939 square feet over four floors, with accessories on the ground, women’s ready-to-wear on the first, men’s on the second and a VIP space on the third.
Kors, who is set to arrive in London Thursday to host an opening party and dinner, described Old Bond Street as one of the most luxurious, storied streets in the world.
He said his aim was to create a one-off space “where our customers can step out of the hustle of the city and relax and indulge. Shopping today can sometimes be a little commercial and impersonal. With the townhouse, we’ve created a unique experience that invites our customers in and makes them feel at home.”
Kors’ end of Old Bond Street, near Piccadilly, has become a marquee brand hub, with Givenchy, Alexander McQueen, Cartier and Stella McCartney all opening stores there over the past year. According to
