A touchstone of American luxury, Michael Kors celebrated Memorial Day weekend with the launch of its largest lifestyle store yet, located on New York’s Madison Avenue. The brand’s clean, chic aesthetic pervades the airy space, which features soaring 22-foot-high ceilings, stainless-steel finishes and white leather benches. The first level offers a wealth of handbags, leather goods, footwear, eyewear, watches and fragrance; ready-to-wear lives on the second floor. “Since New York is our home, it’s important to constantly offer a retail experience that reflects the prestige of the brand,” says CEO John D. Idol. “This new store is a beautiful example of luxury shopping.” And with three times the space of its original store, this Michael Kors mecca has even more to love. 667 Madison Ave.; 212-980-1550; michaelkors.com.
