Brand Spotlight: Michael Kors

Who is Michael Kors? And why should you be wearing his eyewear? The New York City based American sportswear fashion designer has seen a lot of success over the past decade and rightly so.
Kors’ love of fashion started when he was young. His mother was a model, and believes that her son’s interest in fashion was born from him seeing her thrive in that industry. Allegedly, at the age of five, Michael redesigned his mother’s wedding dress for her second marriage. Kors began his foray in to fashion by designing clothes and selling them out of his parents’ basement, which he renamed the Iron Butterfly.

But it’s not just fashion that Kors can be commended for he was also named a Global Ambassador Against Hunger for the United Nations World Food Programme. That same year, God’s Love We Deliver dedicated the Michael Kors Building at the non-profit’s new SoHo headquarters in honor of Kors’ ongoing support. In 2013, Kors was selected for The Time 100, the magazine’s annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world. He also made the New York Observer’s list of the 100 Most Influential New Yorkers, under the fashion category. So a pretty admirable guy.

Since 2011, Kors has overseen a radical phase of global expansion, with new stores opening in Hong Kong, Tokyo, London, and Toronto, to go along with the 7,000 square foot flagship store in Paris. His ranges include everything from overcoats to earrings, and all of it offers a glimpse of New York panache. The detail that goes in to every single item is outstanding, as can be seen in his latest offering of eyewear.

Each item is beautifully crafted, and Kors’ use of vibrant colours paired with high-end gold and silver detailing make each pair really stand out. In his sunglasses range, the use of brightly coloured mirror lenses makes each pair a real statement piece. While a wide variety of frame shapes mean the collection is diverse and offers something for everyone.
The collection of glasses from Michael Kors is no different, in the fact they are supremely well made, offer a range of contemporary styles and feature up-market detailing. The range of frame styles mean the collection can accommodate a range of face shapes, and each product is classy enough to wear in the office but look right at home when slouched in to a big leather armchair reading a novel.
