Michael Kors to open flagship store in China

American fashion brand Michael Kors has unveiled plans for its first flagship store in China. Located in Shanghai’s Jing An Kerry Centre, the new 6,000-foot retail space will be designed by Kors’ in-house team in collaboration with New York-based architectural firm KPF, and it will feature elements inspired by Michael Kors’s signature use of metallics and texture, namely a shimmering two-storey exterior façade, reflective screens and polished stainless steel fixtures, a 30-foot-high mirrored wall etched with MK jacquard patterns, and interiors with accents of zebra skin.

In addition to the ready-to-wear collections and its full range of accessories (including handbags, watches, jewellery and eyewear), the flagship will house two new concepts for the brand: a dedicated men’s accessory section and a women’s shoe salon carrying both the Michael Kors Collection and Michael Michael Kors shoe line.
