The Michael Kors jet-set sensibility permeates every inch of his streamlined boutique. Opened in 2000, the shop caters to the designer’s glamorous, travel-ready devotees by stocking everything from skimpy bikinis for the summer to dolman-sleeved fur coats for the colder months. And like a well-packed suitcase, the store’s clean organization offers all the essentials (and that includes delectable oversize sunglasses and eighties-inspired belts). Since this location only carries womenswear and accessories, comfy chairs and a selection of coffee-table books have been set up so men can relax while their better halves browse the neutral-color American sportswear collection; the chunky, cozy knits; and the asymmetrical, sequined party dresses. After all, the typical Kors customer needs to be prepared to go from the office to cocktails then straight to the nearest tropical island, and why would she go alone?Sales
