It seems Michael Kors’ fashion career was already written in the stars. At the tender age of five, he helped design his mother’s wedding dress. Both his mother and grandmother were a huge influence when he launched his namesake label in 1981 after designing outfits for friends to wear to Studio 54, New York’s legendary nightclub. That jet-set aesthetic has appealed to everyone from models Lauren Hutton and Lily Aldridge to Oprah Winfrey and Michelle Obama. The combination of stylish elegance and a sporty attitude comes to sunglasses. A lover of the aviator himself, its reworked with gradient lenses in feminine colours and signature details like the chain-link or the logo charm. Whether it’s Kors’ go-to shape, or cat eyes and oversized silhouettes crafted from one-of-a-kind acetate, Michael Kors sunglasses are adored by the modern woman.
