Project Runway doesn’t always skyrocket its contestants to instant fashion fame, but it has definitely done wonders for judge Michael Kors. Kors’s celebrity has expanded tremendously since he became a fixture on the show, and this West Village opening marks his third store in Manhattan (with 29 more nationwide openings planned for the spring). The glossy boutique carries all of the classic Americana Michael Kors lines, including the super-luxe Collection ($300–$18,000), midrange Kors by Michael Kors ($200–$2,000) and more-accessible diffusion line Michael Michael Kors ($50–$800). We don’t recommend dropping by the sleek black-and-white–walled spot if you’re looking for clothing, since a single rack in the back makes up the entirety of the store’s apparel selection. There you’ll find sweaters with removable cowl-necks ($90) and sequined shorts ($60). Instead, the stock is mostly accessories, and includes highlights such as leather wedge booties ($275), studded beanies ($39) and bright leather bucket totes ($398).
