Michael Kors to Open Largest Boutique in Paris

Designer Michael Kors is opening his largest flagship store to date this spring in Paris. The new 7,000 sq. ft. store will be the first freestanding boutique in France, located at 279 rue Saint Honoré and will feature products from Michael Kors, KORS, and MICHAEL Michael Kors.

“I am thrilled to open in Paris; I spent many years as an ‘American in Paris’ during my Celine years, so this feels like a homecoming of sorts," said Kors in a statement. "Rue Saint HonorĂ© is the perfect street for my clients…glamorous, chic, romantic and fast-paced all at the same time. I’m delighted to be back in the City of Light!”

“Paris is a city that has been on our radar for quite some time…it’s an international fashion capital of the world," said Kors' CEO John D. Idol. "We have spent a great deal of time searching for the perfect location which we found on Rue St. HonorĂ©. It’s a chic space for Michael’s glamorous products. Our retail locations have a proven track record of success globally, and we look forward to further growth throughout Europe.”

Kors has over 60 freestanding boutiques in over 60 cities from Palm Beach to Chicago. For more information, visit www.michaelkors.com
