Michael Kors Celebrates Rodeo Drive Store Opening with Star-Studded Event

Gabrielle Union-Wade, Olivia Wilde, and More Attend Glamorous Launch Party

Michael Kors has announced the opening of a new Michael Kors Collection store at 242 N. Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills, within the Two Rodeo Drive shopping destination. The brand celebrated the opening with a glamorous event that highlighted the best of Los Angeles. Guests, including Gabrielle Union-Wade, Olivia Wilde, Kerry Washington, and Mindy Kaling, joined designer Michael Kors at Canter’s Deli, with a menu curated by L.A.’s iconic Spago. The evening featured a performance by DJ Kitty Ca$h as attendees toasted the new store.

“Beverly Hills is one of the few places in the world where you can get the speed of big-city life blended with a resort-like glamour,” said Michael Kors. “From the impressive architecture to the restaurants, world-class people-watching, and the shopping, it has the best of everything. I am very excited to bring Michael Kors Collection back to one of the most legendary locations on the planet. Rodeo Drive is a very special place for me personally, as my family moved to Beverly Hills back in the Seventies and the street has always been an epicenter of luxury and glamour.”

The new 1,500-square-foot store features a luxurious residential feel, incorporating a mix of materials and textures such as blackened steel, raw concrete, antique brass, gold Calacatta marble, and oxidized maple. Luxe textiles add warmth and tactile drama to the mix of stone, wood, and metal, all rendered in a clean, neutral palette.

The street level immerses customers in the Michael Kors Collection world, with a large video wall and a rich product display area featuring walnut shelves and a black marble nesting table. A minimalistic storefront with a wide, open glass window entrance offers maximum visibility from the street and bathes the store in warm California natural light.

The lower level is characterized by chic, geometric elegance, with ceiling-hung apparel bars lining the perimeter and dramatic marble tables running the length of the store. The simple palette of grey, white, black, and brass serves as an understated backdrop for Michael Kors Collection handbags and accessories. Curated mannequin groupings showcase the range of products available in the store.
