This is vital in today’s market even though customers are attracted to online in their droves, they still value a luxury retail experience, seeing and feeling clothing in store.

Speaking about the new store John D. Idol, Chairman and CEO of Michael Kors said: “Our Regent Street flagship illustrates the evolution of the Michael Kors brand and the scope of our commitment to the business in Europe.

“This new European flagship enables us to present the full range of our luxury offering, including our exciting and fast-growing menswear line.”
