As a graduate of the Fashion Institute of Technology, Kors launched his first clothing line in 1981. The womenswear line was sold to all of the top names, such as Bloomingdales, Bergdorf Goodman, Lord & Taylor, Neiman Marcus, and Saks Fifth Avenue. Needless to say, the line was a huge success. His knack for designs that fit a woman's body was unmatched, hence making him the huge success he is today.
This is one designer who appeals to the masses, as well as celebrity. Stars like Jennifer Lopez, Heidi Klum, and Catherine Zeta-Jones are fans of the collection, as well as many like you and I. Michael Kors has brought back femininity to design and we love it. His watches are a perfect reflection of that style. Most of the timepieces are luxury models. They are well appointed and made with the finest materials. MK may not have 150 years of watchmaking expertise on his own, but he understands how to draw that from others. The watch line is available in either stainless-steel, plated gold, or a combination of the two metals. The pieces are substantial in size and weight and are polished to a high shine. The dials are most commonly Mother-of-Pearl, which showcases the crystal settings beautifully and the cases are generally thicker, which also add to the appeal of these pieces.
Michael Kors also uses some different and unique materials in his watchmaking. His ceramic and horn collections are stand out pieces that most other designers don't offer. All of his watches are made with Swiss quartz movements, which keep the prices reasonable. In fact, the price tags are so affordable that most anyone could own a Michael Kors watch. Many of his most popular designs are offered at price points that start around $200. I don't know about you, but I think that is a steal for a high quality, Swiss made, designer piece. I believe that a large part of the appeal of Michael Kors watches is the comparison between the quality offered and the price asked. Michael Kors offers value that's affordable.
Description: In a world where one is expected to carry 150 years of experience with them, Michael Kors is rapidly making a name for himself. Kors, initially born Karl Anderson, Jr. has been a designer since he was just 19 years old and only began offering watches a short time ago. MK watches are as distinctive in appearance as his clothing.
