Global lifestyle brand, Michael Kors Holdings Limited (KORS), has opened its biggest flagship store in the world at 520 Broadway in New York's SoHo.
Spanning 22,000 square feet and occupying three stories, this SoHo outlet marks numerous milestones for the company.

Moreover, the store comprises a floor fully dedicated to Michael Kors and MICHAEL Michael Kors accessories and the largest assortment of MICHAEL Michael Kors ready-to-wear and footwear worldwide, including a shoe salon, the first of its kind in the U.S.
