New Michael Kors flagship store coming to Bloor Street
It seems that Bloor Street’s recent makeover—complete with new granite sidewalks, London plane trees and sleek, minimalist bike racks—is starting to pay off. First, designer label emporium Intermix announced that its first Canadian location would grace the Mink Mile, and now we hear—courtesy of Toronto Star fashion writer Derick Chetty—that Michael Kors will be opening a flagship store on Bloor sometime soon.
Michael Kors’ fall 2011 ready-to-wear collection debuted at Fashion Week in New York earlier this month, marking the designer’s 30th year in business. The collection itself is a mix of sharp tailoring and immaculate draping, featuring an autumn-appropriate palette of greys, black, purples and earth tones with a few punches of colour, like a gorgeous flaming red evening gown, worn on the runway by model Frida Gustavsson. Here’s hoping the flagship location will offer more Michael Kors apparel, as opposed to handbags and shoes–heavy locations in Yorkdale, the Eaton Centre and Sherway Gardens.

Minimalist in they are nowhere to be seen. Take a hint from Copenhagen http://www.copenhagencyclechic.com/2011/02/off-light.html — the most fashionable way to get around is not in an ugly, honking SUV but a sleek, pretty bicycle where you can show off your shoes, legs, everything. Unless Bloor only wants to cater to overaged Rosedale hags.
Michael Kors is just a name without the quality to back it up. Handbags do not last unless you just want them for a season. If you want to wear their watches, might as well go to Fossil, since that’s who makes MK watches. You pay a premium for the brand… free advertisement for the MK name.
FYI: Fossil also manufacteurs Burberry and Armani watches, along with Michael Kors.
I cannot wait for the new designs of Michael Kors Handbags !
