Michael kors Buys Jimmy Choo For $1.2 Billion

Getty

The all-American brand poaches the British footwear label.

Michael Kors is buying Jimmy Choo for 896 million pounds ($1.2 billion), both brands announced on Tuesday. Under the deal, each shareholder of the high-end footwear label will receive 2.30 ($3) pounds per share in cash, WWD reports.
The acquisition is a response to the decrease in sales for upscale brands, as mall shopping has "declined sharply," reports The New York Times. Though e-commerce sites, fast-fashion brands, and even luxury labels like Gucci continue to thrive, brands in the "accessible luxury market," such as Kors, are struggling. The Jimmy Choo deal comes two months after Coach made a similar move by buying Kate Spade for $2.4 billion.

Love Is Clearly In The Air For Spring

landscape-1473885365-hbz-3-is-a-trend-love-index
It can sometimes feel like fashion's most precious fuel is irony. Do you really like the '80s band on your tee or are you winking at the world (and that street style photographer)? Is a very expensive shirt with shoulder pads that reads "You Are An Asshole" worn because the wearer thinks it's beautiful, or is it a modern retail equivalent of Duchamp's urinal? But, perhaps the question isn't what constitutes fashion? It's where is the love in fashion? Three designers are skipping the cynicism for spring and wearing their hearts on their chests. At Rodarte, Kate and Laura Mulleavy's ethereal, lace and organza collection included a dress with fabric flowing off the shoulders and a heart made of paillettes in...

Michael Kors Is Most Popular Handbag Brand for Teens

gettyimages-488264384

The verdict is in. According to the Taking Stock With Teens survey, presented semi-annually by investment bank and asset management firm Piper Jaffray, the most popular handbag brand among teenagers is—drumroll, please—Michael Kors!

Business Wire reports that 10,000 teens across 46 states weighed in on the survey, and Michael Kors won out with a whopping 34% against other arm candy manufacturers. Second place went to Kate Spade with 19%, Coach took home third with 10%, next was Louis Vuitton with 3%, and Longchamp and Vera Bradley brought up the rear with a combined 3%.

With so many cute, practical styles that don't break the bank, we think the surveyed teens have chosen well.

There's the go-to tote:

Solange Knowles Is the New Face of Michael Kors and She Looks Ah-Mazing

Trying a different tack from his usual jet-setter-y ad campaigns (sorry, Karmen Pedaru), Michael Kors has tapped Solange Knowles for The Walk, the brand's first-ever streetwear initiative.
"Solange is strong and passionate and not afraid to share her opinion with the world—and that type of confidence always makes an impact," Kors said in an interview with Billboard. "She's a true trendsetter. I love how she takes some of our pieces and makes them her own."

Michael Kors on How Your City Defines Your Style

landscape-1469465566-mcx080116be-ownwords-005

You discover so much when you travel. My first trip out of the country was to both London and Paris, as a teenager, and of course I had these very cinematic ideas of what the women would look like. In Paris, I was expecting Belle de Jour on every corner, and I had this fantasy that everyone in London was going to be walking around wearing a cardigan and a pair of wellies, like English royalty in the countryside.

“I’ve always liked to get the dance party started, and if it takes me being the person to get out of my seat, I’ll do it,” said Hailee Steinfeld. “The minute I met Michael I felt like I was the last person to get out. He just knows how to have a good time—and he’s such a good soul.” The Michael in question is, of course,Michael Kors, the always generous, legendarily fun force in fashion (and Steinfeld’s date to this year’s Met Ball), who celebrated the launch of his new fragrance line, Gold, at the Top of the Standard last night. The bash brought out just about every major super in the game: Constance Jablonski and Jacquelyn Jablonski, Tao Okamoto, Karmen...
