The shop, which measures nearly 6,000 square feet, showcases a completely new store facade concept designed by Michael Kors’ in-house design team in collaboration with New York-based architectural firm KPF.

The flagship features numerous new design elements, starting with a “shimmering” two-story exterior facade that was inspired by Michael Kors’ signature use of metallics and texture. Other key features includes the use of luminous screens made of unique, light-reflective facets set within a Michael-Kors-Jing-An-Kerry-Centre-Shanghaigrid of internally lit recesses, which aims to evoke the light-catching allure of a sequined gown. “I’m thrilled to be opening a flagship in Shanghai,” said Michael Kors. “It’s an incredible store for an incredible city. We wanted to design something that is sophisticated, glamorous, and modern a fabulous shopping environment for the stylish, fashion-forward Chinese customer. I can’t wait to welcome our customers new and devoted to this incredible space in a city that has long defined cosmopolitan chic.” The interior of the store was conceived and appointed to reflect the signature “jet set glamour” of the brand and includes 30-foot-high mirrored wall, etched with the MK jacquard pattern, as well as a framed giant video screen, polished stainless steel fixtures, and zebra-skin accents, which are all designed to create a “luxurious and inviting atmosphere”.
