NEW YORK — The Saks Beauty Place limelight illuminated Michael Kors during a public appearance by the designer at Saks Fifth Avenue’s Manhattan flagship on Wednesday.
The main aisle and central display cases on the store’s beauty floor were all Kors Michael Kors, marking the launch week of the designer’s latest scent, which officially began selling at the store several weeks ago. In the midst of the buzz, Kors signed bottles and photos of himself for about 100 to 125 customers who braved the wake of the holiday weekend blizzard to trek to the store. Industry sources estimated that the one-hour appearance helped push sales of the designer fragrance brand to nearly $10,000 for the day.
