The History of Michael Kors Watches

History of Michael Kors Watches

Designer Michael Kors is one of the most recognizable and popular fashion designers in the world today. Kors fashion collections are among top-selling apparel lines for both women and men. In addition, the designer's handbags, fragrances, accessories, wristwatches and sunglasses are highly sought-after throughout the world.

Kors rose to prominence in the 1980s with the introduction of his elegant, understated women's collections. In 1997, Kors became the ready-to-wear designer for the French fashion house Celine, which was met with universal acclaim and widespread popularity. The designer's fashions have been worn by everyone from First Lady Michelle Obama to Jenifer Lopez, Catherine Zeta Jones, Gwyneth Paltrow and Alicia Keys.

Men's apparel, fine fragrance, handbags and accessories soon followed in the early 2000's. The designer signed a licensing agreement at this time with Fossil Watches, who have produced and distributed Michael Kors watches for close to 15 years.

Interestingly, the Michael Kors watch collections have eclipsed the designer's apparel lines in popularity in recent years. Kors' bold oversized wristwatches have captivated both men and women with their innovative use of materials and generous proportions, making them today's most popular designer watches around.

The Michael Kors Bradshaw, Runway, Lexington and Brinkley watches currently rank among the top-selling watches for men and women today in the United States and around the world.
