Michael Kors Opens First Spain Shop
Michael Kors has opened its first store in Spain. The company recently bowed a 2,700-sq.-ft. shop in Madrid on the city’s Serrano shopping boulevard. The store features both the Michael Kors and Michael Michael Kors labels in categories including footwear, ready-to-wear, handbags, eyewear, watches, fragrance and small leather goods. “Madrid is a fantastic city, and I’m so glad to be a part of it,” Kors said in a statement. “It’s got fabulous culture, great food and the nights go on forever. Our clothes and accessories are perfect for the lifestyle — classic and cool, sexy and energetic.”
Toms Connects in London
Toms Shoes is turning its first pop-up shop in London into a teaching moment. The brand bowed the new space last month in the city’s Covent Garden neighborhood. The shop will be open through June 28. The brand also formed a partnership with the London College of Fashion, where seven students created one-of-a-kind pairs of Toms that went on display May 31. They will then be part of a silent auction, with proceeds benefitting Fashion Awareness Direct, an organization assisting young people while they develop their fashion careers.
