The last couple months, we've kept our eyes firmly trained on the coming Bleecker Street store for Michael Kors, in the old Olive & Bette's space. Any moment now it'll open, meaning more tourist money love for MK and the ability to turn the construction focus on another new location: 5th Avenue.
Michael Kors is taking the corner location next to Armani Exchange at 5th Avenue and 20th Street, with a planned Spring 2011 debut of another Lifestyle store. Who wants to bet that'll be further defined as "around Fashion Week?" Once both Bleecker and Fifth bow, Kors will be able to count a full hand of Manhattan locations?a solid five.
