Michael Kors Watch

If you’re looking for a trendy watch, you don’t necessarily want to be purchasing your new watch from one of the industry giants. Instead, you want to be looking towards a guy who really knows trends: a fashion designer. This is where Michael Kors comes in. A fashion demigod in America, Michael Kors is just a guy from Long Island who has morphed into a superstar sensation in the design world. He doesn’t just make clothes, he also makes accessories, and watches are one of them. Michael Kors watches are the perfect way to embrace this season’s trends while staying on your budget, and offer a chic alternative to more functional watches.
Let’s start with the basics. Michael Kors was born Karl Anderson on August 9th, 1959 on Long Island. He’s best known for his impeccable eye towards designing classic American sportswear for women, but in recent years, he’s expanded his offerings to dabble in just about every arena. The man can do it all! Kors is the son of Joan Hamburger, a former model who gave her son his love for fashion, and husband Karl Anderson, who bequeathed to his son his own name. When Kors was just five years old, his mother remarried, and Michael was told if he wanted to, he could change his name. Already an illustrious, inquisitive child, then Karl Anderson selected a name for himself: Michael David Kors. Kors’ mother honored his request, and from there on out, Michael Kors was his name. It’s a good thing, too – because Karl Anderson simply doesn’t have the same ring to it! Kors grew up in Merrick, Long Island, a town that also housed Hollywood sensation Lindsay Lohan and a slew of other young celebrities. These days, Kors can be found in New York City, where he moved when he started school at the Fashion Institute of Technology.
At the ripe age of 19, Kors moved to New York to study at the Fashion Institute of Technology, New York’s version of the prestigious London fashion school, Central St. Martins. For those who want to work in fashion, FIT is a great first step – and clearly, the school served Kors well. By 1981, he’d launched his namesake line, Michael Kors womenswear, which was immediately scooped up by buyers at luxury retailer such as Bloomingdales, Bergdorf Goodman, Lord & Taylor, Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue. Kors spent almost fifteen years working on his own line, and in 1997, he was named the women’s ready to wear designer and creative director for beloved French fashion house Celine. During his time at Celine, Kors was credited with turning the fashion house around, thanks to incredible accessories ( a precursor to his amazing work with watches that was still to come) and a critically acclaimed ready to wear line that women couldn’t get enough of.
In October 2003, however, Kors left Celine behind in order to focus on his own brand, riding hot on the heels of his success at the house. Just a year before, he’d launched his menswear line, and a year later, he launched many a diffusion line, including the MICHAEL Michael Kors and KORS Michael Kors lines. These lines included women’s handbags, as well as footwear and jeans. From there, he expanded even further, which is where his stylish watches came in.
These days, Kors is a fashion icon in his own right, with his clothes worn by various celebrities including First Lady Michelle Obama, supermodel Heidi Klum (with whom he stars on the show Project Runway), and actresses Rachel McAdams, Jennifer Lopez and Catherine Zeta-Jones. He works on his lines, and also works as a judge on the Emmy-nominated reality TV show Project Runway, which aired on Bravo to high ratings for five seasons and recently moved to Lifetime.
Hence, Kors is a great choice for women who want to get trendy with their wristwear. A great pick for this season? Tortoise shell has been coming back into style on sunglasses, but why not don it on your wrists as well? This classic print doesn’t appear to be going anywhere, which is probably why Kors has targeted this trend and imprinted it on the bracelet of his Women’s Quartz Tortoise Resin Watch. This striking timepiece features a brown dial with three subdials and luminous hands, and boasts hour and minute markers that are adorned with Swarovski crystals for a little extra bit of sparkle. Meanwhile, the tortoise resin bracelet brings this watch a hint of hipster chic, giving it a look that’s at once timeless and totally trendy.
Looking for a trendy watch? Add Michael Kors to your list. A timeless, classic American fashion designer that crafts timelessly trendy watches, Kors is a must-see when it comes to the new watch shopping list.
