Michael Kors is very much a leading lady type of label. Glamorous, sophisticated and expensive, it is favoured by Hollywood’s A-list and even the First Lady herself. Since the Obama’s entered the White House, Michelle Obama has often been snapped wearing Kors to black tie events, which has helped the label enjoy a massive surge in popularity amongst everyday women.
Kors began designing from an early age and set up his own company ‘Michael Kors’ in 1981. Whilst steering his label to success he also found time to take on the role of Creative Director at French design house, Celine. He oversaw proceedings at Celine for 6 years between 1997 and 2003, during which time he established a critically acclaimed ready-to-wear womenswear line and put Celine firmly on the fashion landscape.
When he left in 2003 it was to concentrate his efforts on his own expanding label. Among the Kors firmament is his very successful watches and accessories line. Which Shade Station will naturally concentrate on here!
We know we bang on about designer watches being a great substitute for a ‘way-beyond our price tag’ designer frock, but it really is true. Michael Kors dresses can cost in their thousands where as a Michael Kors watch will you set back between £55 and wait for it….. £500! For a really special dress watch it’s worth splashing out on a little designer bling. There’s nothing worse than seeing a beautiful outfit teamed with a below par watch. Michael Kors watches are elegant, shiny and the perfect accompaniment to a posh dinner date.
There are many different styles of Michael Kors watches and most of them have pretty highly polished bracelet straps or linked straps. There’s an abundance of silver and gold plate and there’s rose gold, tortoiseshell and even some bright colours thrown in too. All the dials feature the Michael Kors logo for a little extra designer prominence.
As with some of our other designer watch brands, Michael Kors watches fit the bill perfectly for party season glamour. So if you’re looking for an extra little sparkle this Christmas, make sure you consider Kors for stylish wrist embellishment!

Michael Kors is an American power house. Not only is he a lux designer of great note, he has a starring role in TV’s Project Runway and is the recipient of this year’s Lifetime Achievement Award from the prestigious Council of Fashion Designers of America (that’s the fashion Oscars to you and me!) Where does a man who is juggling some serious balls have time to breathe, let alone embark on new projects? His latest is a fabulous new make-up line in collaboration with Estee Lauder, aptly named ‘Very Hollywood’.
Michael Kors counts some of Hollywood’s leading ladies among his loyal fans. Packing a punch at the Oscar parties this year was Jennifer Hudson in a midnight blue Michael Kors gown and comedian of the moment, Tina Fey, in a dazzling one-shouldered Kors number. These ladies made the headlines and created quite a buzz for the Michael Kors brand…
Michael describes the type of women he creates clothes and watches for as “… a woman of any age, any nationality and who is fashion conscious without being a fashion victim”. Sounds like anyone of us, if only we could afford some of his beautiful designer lux clothing! Thankfully his watches, sunglasses and accessories are a little more affordable.
Michael Kors watches are very elegant and stylish, in keeping with the beautiful clothes he produces. We especially love all the tortoiseshell watches in his collection. Tortoiseshell continues to have a strong fashion presence this year and Kors ensures there’s plenty of the wonderful print to go around. There’s no shortage of vintage gold and white Michael Kors watches either, which all makes for a classically decadent collection.

Michael Kors is a designer who represents all things chic and sophisticated with a wearable and casual edge. A huge array of celebrities favour the Michael Kors style because it allows them to look fantastic and polished, yet also be comfortable.
Michael Kors watches are one of the most divine and luxurious accessories you could own yet are still versatile and wearable with a variety of looks. One of the main noticeable design elements of Michael Kors watches are the colours used. Something a little alternative from black, gold and silver or eye popping colours that many other brands have homed in on in recent seasons, Michael Kors watches feature beautiful tones such as brown, golden, fawn, beige and cream as well of course as the traditional staple colours.
Using examples within the collection, the MK5139 for example has a contemporary design with a bracelet strap and sleek circular dial but the stunning brown and cream horn effect colouring and gold detailing definitely injects something exquisite to the watch. The MK4200 is a little more of a dressed up and glamorous style and the tortoiseshell effect and central polished gold section, again adds something extremely refined and chic to the aesthetic of the watch.
Michael Kors is also renowned for retaining his own unique style but applying them to current trends. The MK5197, MK5198 and MK5195 are all perfect examples of this. With bang on trend polycarbonate outer links in contemporary and cool colours such as baby pink, white, and silver, added diamante embellishments either on the dial or at the centre of the links, this definitely adds a glam edge to a current style. Michael Kors is perfect at balancing casual with striking and ensures that the watches remain chic and simple with the focal point either being on the design or the sumptuous and luxurious colour.
In terms of unique design, Michael Kors certainly likes to experiment with innovative styles – the MK2118 is a great example of this with its sliding cover that when placed over the dial completely conceals it and makes the watch look more like an edgy and urban style bracelet. The MK3094 is also striking in terms of design with its super wide bangle style strap which has a textured finish and diamantes positioned around the outer and inner edges. The round dial positioned in the centre is kept small and simple so that the attention is drawn to the main body of the watch.
Michael Kors watches achieve the balance between chic, refined and sophisticated and trendy and cool. With an array of designs to suit a number of style preferences, versatility, beautiful colouring and unique and exquisite design are all common features within the range. The perfect accessory to add something wonderfully special to your look!

The festive season in now upon us and whilst ‘tis the season to be jolly’ the thought of Christmas shopping and enduring hours of pondering what to get your loved ones, can be a little difficult and even quite stressful!
A watch can make the perfect gift and as it is the season to sparkle in style, a Michael Kors watch is the ideal brand to go for as the various designs ooze sophistication and have that luxurious feel that would make every lady feel special.
Michael Kors watches maintain a unique style of their own and are timelessly classic but inject core trend elements. Most of the collection is for women and if you look at the wide range of choices there really is a Michael Kors watch to suit every age range. These watches have become very much sought after and are a must have on every fasionista’s wish list (having been noted on many fashion blogs and in the fashion glossies), who love the exquisite style that creates a highly polished and sophisticated look.
For a slightly younger lady who is more trend orientated and wants a watch that can be worn from day to night, the new MK5198 watch is ideal and retains the Michael Kors sleek finish with its stainless steel strap. The baby pink face keeps the look cute and girly. For a lady who wants something statement and on trend but typical of the Michael Kors style, the new MK4217 with a dual band strap captures the chunky and wide strap trend but the gold exterior and brown tortoiseshell links make the watch instantly recognisable to the Michael Kors brand. The MK5146 with its white acetate bracelet strap with a gold centre section, very much on trend and looks glamorous but is a little more casual in style. For something incredibly elegant the MK4199 watch with a unique horn effect bracelet strap, gold detailing and petite rectangular dial is stunning and will instantly add a striking finish to your look.
Michael Kors is ultimately a brand that creates a polished and elegant finish to your outfit but the designer recognises that to reach out to as wide an audience as possible, the watches must incorporate key trends and be relevant to the current fashion scene. With chunky and wide straps, beautiful colours and fine detailing, he has definitely achieved this and whilst Michael Kors watches appeal to a specific and refined style taste, there is certainly a wide variety to choose from. One thing that all these watches have in common however is that they make every lady feel glamorous, chic and special. The perfect Christmas present for every fashion loving lady!
