Michael Kors opens in Cape Town first store in South Africa
Michael Kors has recently opened its first store in South Africa, in Cape Town at V&A Waterfront Mall. The 2,497-square-foot boutique was designed by the brand’s in-house team and features a neutral color palette for a luxurious ambience. The boutique is designed to reflect the label’s sophisticated, jet set aesthetic.
Michael Kors Cape Town carries ready-to-wear, footwear and accessories from the Michael Michael Kors label, including handbags and small leather goods. The boutique also offers watches, jewelry, eyewear and a selection of fragrances.
“We chose the V&A Waterfront because it’s the top luxury mall in Cape Town, a city renowned for its laid-back glamour,” said Michael Kors. “The city represents the mix of sophistication, glamour and ease that defines everything we design.”
Michael Kors currently operates 816 retail stores, including concessions. There are 944 Michael Kors stores in total, including licensed stores.
