Hello out there as always I would like to take this time out to welcome you to my latest blog post : The Designer Spotlight, Michael Kors x Versace. But before I get started , for those not to familiar with me I AM JMADDD STYLES, you’re Fashion Stylist , Image Consultant , Personal Fashion Shopper and now Fashion/Style Blogger. When it comes to fashion , my interest dosen’t just stop at the creative side of the game . For that matter to truly be well rounded in this field, you have to be knowledgeable of more than just the clothes but the big business behind the clothes. Now I know I often say there is nothing I like better than a good Fashionable collabo , but this is that times two. It seems that Michael Kors
has just recently acquired or brought major fashion house Versace
for approximately 2.1 BILLION. I told you this was major on the Fashionable collabo side. It seems that as of late aside from just putting out great clothing and accessories, Michael Kors has been expanding his empire by acquiring other brands , such as the recent purchase of Jimmy Choo shoes for 1.2 BILLION.
Donatello Versace , will still be on board as creative director, which will be very important to the brand maintaining it’s true look and feel.
Which is one of the reasons why this merger was such a surprise to me , because the brands are so opposite on the style spectrum.
The Michael Kors brand albeit one of my favorites, focuses on Classic American Tailoring & Style with a more calm look , don’t want to call it conservative but definitely not as flashy as Versace which I also like.
See what I mean, two completely opposite looks , but then that’s what will make this partnership so great especially as long as the mind of Donatello Versace is still behind the brand and calling the shots. Well there it is , we have come to the end of yet another blog post. This has been The Designer Spotlight : Michael Kors & Versace. I AM JMADDD STYLES, that’s it for now , so until the next time IM GONE…..
