Remember when you couldn’t get enough of those masculine Micheal Kors designer time pieces? Michael Kors continues to be one of the most sought-after watch brands in the world; in North America alone, the company saw a 24% increase in sales and is still the time piece of choice for many.
I remember buying my first one, and then like a true addiction, I marched down to Macy’s Herald Square for my second and then the flagship store for my third watch. Wrist wear has evolved since then, with many opting for smartwatches and fitness trackers instead. But now, Michael Kors is making a big entrance into the wearables space with two sleek and beautiful Android Wear smartwatches: a beautiful gold-plated design for women and a sporty black one for men.
The smart timepieces run Android Wear, Google’s smartwatch platform, which means they can pair with both iPhones and Android phones. Like most smartwatches, they can display app notifications, fitness-tracking data, text alerts, email and social media updates, as well as other Google services, including voice-recognition software, available on the Android Wear platform.
The starting price for both is $395 and they’ll debut in department stores (and Michael Kors stores) in fall 2016. What do you think about these new designer smart watches? Would you buy a Michael Kors smart watch for yourself as a gift? Share your thoughts below!

Walk into any run-of-the-mill electronics store to outfit your DSLR camera or laptop with a bag and you’ll be met with a whole lot of drab nylon options. Put down the bulky cases covered with inexplicable plastic clips and opt for one of these chic finds that can easily double as your everyday bag. From perfect-for-Fall leather crossovers to timeless quilted purses, these camera bags will keep equipment safe and require no sartorial excuses.
The Michael Kors MK Monogram Horizontal Tote blends fashion and function, providing a great stylish way to carry around your MacBook Pro or MacBook Air. This tote-style case in Michael Kors signature monogram print delivers a separate inner pocket to house your MacBook, as well as additional pockets for your iPad and iPhone.
With its quilted faux leather exterior and detachable crossbody gold chain strap, the Bossi Bag may be your traveling staple. The customizable padded inserts snugly fit a camera body, two-four lenses, flash attachment, battery, and your everyday basics.
The classic structure of a doctor bag meets our modern needs with the handcrafted leather camera bag by Etsy seller Lee Loong. This bag won’t hold too many camera accessories, but the design is great enough to use even when the DSLR is left at home.
Don’t let that fashion-forward structure fool you, theClaremont Crossover Bag is photography-focused. The nappa leather exterior and gunmetal hardware disguise a body big enough for standard Canon and Nikon DSLRs, a lens or flash, and clever memory card inserts.
Fashion has finally met functionality with this Kate Spade bag. You really can’t beat the on-trend violet-blue hue of the tote, but even better, the bag works as a cross-body — perfect for a hands-free commute or roaming the city after work without hassle. It’ll fit your 15” laptop and a folder or two, and it has a front zip pocket for odds and ends, but it won’t be able to lug around much more. It’s a Kate Spade so you can expect the finest materials (your bag won’t rip apart after a few months), but that quality comes at a high cost: $498.00.
Michael Kors announced the launch of “Living The Kors Life,” an ongoing, interactive, shoppable digital video and content series that will showcase
the rich mix of personalities—all with diverse lifestyles, fashion sensibilities, passions and life perspectives—who work at and wear Michael Kors. Available online now, the newly redesigned Destination Kors, the company’s digital content site, the first iteration of this large-scale global
initiative will star three women from the New York headquarters of Michael Kors, all working in different areas of the company and all reflections of the designer’s belief in the Michael Kors woman as an intriguing mix of casual and chic, sexy and glamorous, smart and funny.
As “Living the Kors Life” rolls out each season, a new cast of women from within the company will be introduced, with the goal of scaling the series globally to include Michael Kors employees from the company’s worldwide offices and shops. Content will also be translated across international markets eventually.
The first installment of “Living the Kors Life” features a video of Michael Kors introducing the project, and a teaser video of the three women in the summer-season series, which will run through August 31. A click-through shoppable sidebar called “Get Her Look” will feature the pieces (or similar items) worn in each video. Each woman will then post weekly, recounting what she’s obsessed with across a range of interests; how she wore a piece of Michael Kors that week; and because women’s lives are multi-textured, what she did recently to make the world just a little bit better. Merchandise featured in weekly blog posts will be shoppable via a link to michaelkors.com

Wow these designers really love their wallet / case hybrids don’t they! But, we’re certainly not complaining, especially with this product from Michael Kors which is probably the roomiest and most secure we’ve come across.
The faux-croc exterior might not be for everyone though, so check out the other colours and effects, like pain black and red patent.
We love the colour of this Kate Spade wristlet specially designed for the iPhone 4. It’s got plenty of slots and pockets for cards and important things, so leave your bag
at home and feel liberated!
The Ted Baker Flip Case is a durable faux-leather iPhone case that looks sleek too. Yes, it’s bright pink. But a little bit of pink never hurt anyone. The great thing about flip cases is that you’re protecting the iPhone’s screen too, so ditch that blurry screen protector and wrap your mobile up in Ted Baker goodness instead.
The flip compartment also has plenty of room for a few cards and pennies too, so while you’re at it you can ditch the over-sized bag too.
A luxurious iPhone case from Aspinal of London with a gold, leather exterior and a stone suede lining for high-end protection and lots of style.
You can get the case in a range of colours and you can also choose between a plain exterior or this faux-croc effect.
