Michael Kors is taking over The Shops at Columbus Circle, one shop at a time. The Shophound noticed some serious signage on the shopping center's ground floor, where the American label is set to take over spaces previously occupied by Tourneau and J.W. Cooper.
Based on size alone, The Shophound speculated that this space could be another "lifestyle" store, like the one that's slated to open in Soho. However, there's no confirmation on what merchandise will be available.
But what is apparent is that the designer is trying to take over Manhattan—along with these Columbus Circle and Soho openings, Michael Kors has also inked a lease at the high-end Brookfield Place.
