Native New Yorker Michael Kors fell prey to the charms of L.A. long ago. “I’ve been smitten ever since first visiting my grandparents,” says the designer, who now comes to the city at least four times a year. “The weather! The mix of ease and glamour!” With the opening of this new boutique, Kors will have even more reason to head west. “I just think the Grove is such an iconic shopping experience,” says the designer. The corner shop will house all three accessories lines and MICHAEL Michael Kors ready-to wear while catering to SoCal’s casual chic trademark. “‘Can you wear it with jeans?’ is a big L.A. question,” Kors notes.
Kors’ L.A. Haunts
Hotel: “The Beverly Hills Hotel. I immediately head to a cabana. I love the idea of taking a dip in the same pool where Liz Taylor swam.”
Restaurants: “Dan Tana’s. Love the mix of Hollywood and hipsters. And the Apple Pan [for burgers] is divine—so old school and delish.”
Shopping: “I always stop in at The Way We Wore for its fab vintage fashion from every era.”
Weeked Destination: “I can’t get enough of Big Sur. Nature + Luxury = Heaven.”
