Michael Kors, London

Michael Kors here in London oozes the typical American aesthetic. The interior space of this store with its white glossy surfaces and and pure white figures is a world away from the hustle and bustle of central London. Within this interior space we can see the use of designated spaces with the change in floor surfaces and low level lighting in conjunction with clearly identified focal and pause points. Lighting has been used to highlight certain areas within the space, particularly the figures wearing the merchandise which draws us toward them. Kors seems to veer towards the use of headless figures which I feel looks a little odd for this type of brand, particularly in the previous scheme further below, however perhaps this is an attempt to appeal to a wider audience, who knows. The current window scheme uses multiple chains as the backdrop, which seems to be popular currently amongst some of the designer stores here in London.
