Binky Felstead And Mic Co-star Rosie Fortescue Show You How To Match Your Make-up To Your Clothes This Season

Michael Kors Holdings Coverage Initiated at Barclays (KORS)

Follow Ticker Report on Facebook To read more from Binky, visit her blog here So I got straight on the phone to my MiC buddy Rosie Fortescue and arranged a girly get-together. Rosie is a real fashion expert, so I thought we could combine my make-up know-how and her style sense to come up with some gorgeous ideas and advice. Let's get started: Michael Kors Sporty Citrus Eau de Perfume Spray Binky: Talk about capturing the moment! This fresh citrus scent smells like spring sunshine in a bottle. It has orange and mandarin top notes that really zing, making it the perfect fresh, daytime fragrance. There's also a hint of orange-flower, as well as rich patchouli and musk, all of which add warmth and sensuality for evening. This is a great day-to-night perfume and would work with any look from sporty to sexy. King Kors: Binky thinks his make-up and perfume is just as fabulous, with fashion-forward colours, gorgeous scents and ultra-glam gold packaging Michael Kors - Glam Bronzing Powder in Beam Binky: Well, I don't need to tell you guys how much I love bronzer - and this is one of the best. Its luminous deep copper shade complements most skin tones, providing a rich and healthy-looking tan. Buff the smooth powder onto the cheekbones for a sculpted look, and blend across the forehead, bridge of the nose and decolletage for an all-over glow. Rosie: Even pale-skinned girls like me benefit from a touch of bronzer.

King Kors: Binky thinks his make-up and perfume is just as fabulous, with fashion-forward colours, gorgeous scents and ultra-glam gold packaging Its a tale of three diverging luxury designers as affordability and availability take precedence over exclusivity and high pricing that have long attracted rich, aspirational spenders and tourists. Barclays started coverage on Kate Spade at overweight, calling it the top pick in U.S. luxury. It started Michael Kors at underweight and maintained its equal weight rating on Coach. U.S. Luxury has demonstrated a need to balance affordability and availability with premium positioning in order to remain competitive in the marketplace, Barclays analyst Joan Payson said in a note. This is a divergence from the absolute luxury model of exclusivity through pricing and distribution channels. U.S. companies in general are starting to gain share against their long-reigning global rivals. While the global luxury space is on track to grow 3% to 5% from 2013 to 2016, Barclays expects U.S. companies to outperform with 8% to 10% growth.

On the International Securities Exchange (ISE), Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE), and NASDAQ OMX PHLX (PHLX), the equity's 10-day put/call volume ratio of 1.39 stands just 14 percentage points from an annual peak, pointing to a healthier-than-usual appetite for bearish bets over bullish of late. What's more, short-term speculators are picking up KORS options at a relative discount, as the stock's Schaeffer's Volatility Index (SVI) of 27% is just 6 percentage points from a 52-week low. Barclays downgraded CSCO to "equal weight" from "overweight," and trimmed its price target by $2 to $23. While most analysts are optimistic toward Cisco Systems, Inc. -- 18 out of 25 brokerage firms maintain "buy" or better opinions -- the options crowd has been picking up puts over calls at an accelerated clip. The equity's 10-day ISE/CBOE/PHLX put/call volume ratio of 0.78 stands higher than 84% of all other readings of the past year. As such, the stock's Schaeffer's put/call open interest ratio (SOIR) of 0.69 ranks in the 72nd percentile of its annual range, suggesting short-term options traders are more put-biased than usual right now.

Most of Wall Street is bullish when it comes to Citigroup Inc, which boasts 15 "buy" or better ratings, compared to four lukewarm "holds" and just one "sell" or worse suggestion. Plus, the average 12-month price target of $60.17 represents expected upside of 26% from C's closing price of $47.73 on Monday, and stands in territory not charted since early 2009.

In fact, we did a lot of the embroidery and all of the embellishment, we did it for the day rather than night time, because the reality is, why not enjoy all this beautiful luxury in the day instead of having to wait for a special occasion? His clothes looked luxurious, and since it was a fall collection, there was plenty of fur. Cashmere, mohair, alpaca, shearling ... materials that you want to touch and stroke. There were even cashmere sweatpants! Evening wear was transparent and ethereal with lots of semi-sheer pieces. Slip dresses worn with tailored coats, heavy knits with skirts ... this was the yin and yang that Kors spoke of, offering a balance between tailored aesthetics and flowing silhouettes, a juxtaposition of masculinity and femininity. Kors designs are the kind of pieces that transcend seasons, classic pieces which you can keep as wardrobe staples. They give the idea of luxury as being an every day kind of feel.

Deborah Williams, aged 51, sole trader of Zebra clothes shop in Woodgate, Rothley, admitted selling counterfeit designer handbags at Leicester Magistrates Court. Ms Williams was fined 170, ordered to pay costs of 600 and pay a victim surcharge of 20. Following a complaint that counterfeit handbags were being sold from Zebra, Trading Standards Officers executed warrants at Ms Williams dress shop and home address. Officers seized counterfeit Gucci, Armani, Michael Kors, Hermes and Christian Dior designer handbags. Ms Williams shop was legitimately selling a range of ladies clothing but she had bought the fake handbags whilst on holiday in Turkey and was selling them in her shop. David Bull, head of Leicestershire County Council Trading Standards Service, said: Dealing in counterfeit goods is illegal and unacceptable. Trading Standards will take action against any traders who are found to be breaking the law, as legitimate retailers and the jobs of their employees need to be protected from unfair competition. Pam Posnett, County Council cabinet member for trading standards, said: Consumers need to have the confidence to buy designer goods from high street shops. Trading Standards officers are always reminding consumers to be wary when buying goods online or at markets and car boot sales. They should be able to trust local retailers. If you have information about someone selling counterfeit goods email telltradingstandards@leics.gov.uk or contact Citizens Advice Consumer Service on 08454 040506.

Michael Kors sues Costco for false advertising of his handbags

How could an already well-known brand from outlet centers be transformed into one that steals the show from the on-fire Michael Kors ( KORS ) at Macy's ( M ), while at the same time stomping on the face of Coach ( COH ) as it attempts to pick itself upoff the ground after years of stale assortments? Well, it's actually happening, as I detected in a fact finding mission at various upper tier department stores. For the record, Kate Spade is now its own publicly traded entity, has a stock price that is up 98% in the last year, and a forward price-to-earnings multiple (58x) that would make Ben Bernanke and Janet Yellen cringe. Here are a few of the things I like and don't like about the new Kate Spade. Likes It's taking floor space in department stores with more eye-catching shops (aka concessions in SEC filings) than Michael Kors and Coach. It's taking prime counter space in the watch section at department stores. The brand has begun to show consumers a full lifestyle collection in its new retail stores (housewares, stuff other than handbags and wallets). Dislikes Although at $1,265 in sales per share foot there is opportunity to reach michael kors bags Michael Kors ($1,431) and Coach ($1,831), this metric has not grown much in the past six months. On a 30% same-store sales gain for the holiday quarter, adjusted operating margins were flat as Kate Spade invested in its future growth.

Costco sued over 'misleading' ad for $99 Michael Kors handbags because it is 'not an authorized retailer and doesn't sell them in store'

Source of the problem: Upscale fashion brand Michael Kors is suing discount retailer Costco for allegedly falsely advertising its handbags at bargain prices without authorization In all likelihood, it's eating the lunches of its North American competitors such as Coach. Compared to popular European luxury brand names such as Gucci or Louis Vuitton, Michael Kors' merchandise is very competitively priced. Its luxury handbags, for instance, sell mostly in the $400 range; this isat a time when many European makers are sharply hiking their prices to combat slowing growth.Vuitton introduced $3,850 and $5,350 Capucine handbags last year in an attempt to go upmarket. Michael Kors' globally recognized brands that sell at affordable prices has made them very appealing especially to younger fashion-conscious buyers around the world. Young buyers in places such as China tend to prefer American brands which their bold designs and bright colors,as compared tothe big European luxury houses that usually tout their heritage to justify their exorbitant prices. Gucci saw its revenue from China fall in the last two quarters. Shopping America American brands such as Michael Kors and Coach have been slow to tap into the rapidly growing Chinese luxury brands due to their rather limited presence in Europe and Asia. The Chinese account for one out of every four dollars spent on luxury goods globally. Coach says that a fifth of its North American sales come from Chinese tourists, which is also the fastest growing group. Part of the allure that's commonly associated with luxury goods is their sense of exclusivity and exotic-ness, and many Chinese luxury goods buyers are falling in love with American brands.

Actress Blake Lively and Michael Kors backstage at the Michael Kors fashion show. There was plenty of Americana on display with suede fringes and gorgeous bulky knitwear. The fringed skirts and bags, and long knit scarves with tassels, were all great pieces to incorporate into a winter wardrobe. Kors makes amazing outerwear, and his trenchcoats and fabulous coats are all must-haves. Looking at the flowy dresses and peasant blouses, it was a collection that had movement, which was essentially what Kors wanted to achieve. We concentrated on the idea of yin and yang, romanticism, a lot of softer dresses and skirts, chiffon, things that catch the wind, mixed with something that looks like you borrowed from the boys.

According to a complaint filed in Manhattan federal court, Costco has never been an authorized retailer of Michael Kors handbags, yet it has recently run advertisements nationwide falsely suggesting that the handbags are available "starting at $99." In one example cited, Costco in April sent an email ad touting a selection of handbags for Mother's Day "starting at $99.99," several of which were Michael Kors handbags featuring the company's trademarks. But Michael Kors, which also makes shoes, watches and jewelry, said that its representatives visited Costco's website and 19 retail stores, and found none carried its handbags. On the Michael Kors website on Friday, most full-size women's handbags were priced between $298 and $1,195.

Coach, Kors Poised to Lose Ground to Kate Spade

Kate Spade We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company is trading at a premium valuation based on our review of its current price compared to such things as earnings and book value. Highlights from the ratings report include: KORS's very impressive revenue growth greatly exceeded the industry average of 16.1%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues leaped by 59.0%. Growth in the company's revenue appears to have helped boost the earnings per share. KORS has no debt to speak of therefore resulting in a debt-to-equity ratio of zero, which we consider to be a relatively favorable sign. Along with this, the company maintains a quick ratio of 4.07, which clearly demonstrates the ability to cover short-term cash needs. The return on equity has improved slightly when compared to the same quarter one year prior. This can be construed as a modest strength in the organization. Compared to other companies in the Textiles, Apparel & Luxury Goods industry and the overall market, MICHAEL KORS HOLDINGS LTD's return on equity significantly exceeds that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.

The "affordable luxury" brand has had very few missteps as a publicly traded company, as demand remains strong for its high-end clothing, handbags and other accessories. Group peer Coach ( COH ) has turned into a laggard as Kors continues to take market share. In early February, Kors reported another strong quarter as earnings and sales came in well above expectations. It also gave bullish guidance. Fiscal Q3 profit surged 73% from a year ago. Sales rose 59% to just over $1 billion. Same-store sales in North America rose 24%. In Europe, same-store sales soared 73%. Growth accelerated from the second quarter. Kors boasts a five-year annualized earnings growth rate of 113% and sales growth rate of 56%.

Coach is the oldest company of the four, and its growth has been slowing down considerably in the recent quarters. During the last quarter, Coach saw its revenue plunge 6% to $1.42 billion, with sales in its all-important North American market dropping 9%, which raised concerns that the brand was losing its American appeal.

Michael Kors Holdings Ltd (kors): This Insider Made 32% The Last Time She Bought

Michael Kors Ladies' Lexington Glitz Watch

This isn't the first time Ms. Gibbons opened the purse strings to buy the consumer goods company's shares. In September 2013, she bought 2,125 shares at $74.68 for a total investment of $158,695. Today, the September investment is worth almost $210,000 again of 32% in six months. Perhaps, the director is trying to profit, again, from a phenomenon known as post-earnings announcement drift (PEAD). PEAD is the tendency for a stock to produce above average and abnormal returns following positive earnings announcements. Last quarter, KORS topped Wall Street's consensus estimate by $0.25, which worked out to 29.1% more than expected. [Related - Michael Kors Holdings Ltd (KORS) Q3 Earnings Preview: Another Bullish Surprise in the Bag? ] Maybe, valuation is another angle?

Trade-Ideas: Michael Kors Holdings (KORS) Is Today's Post-Market Leader Stock

Quite simply, consumers currently view Coach as a stale brand, while they view Michael Kors as a brand in extremely high demand. The social media test I typically like to perform on retailers confirms as much. For instance, on Facebook, Coach has only 5 million fans while Michael Kors has 12.4 million. Twittershows largely the same results, as Coach has 536,000 followers versus Michael Kors' 1.8 million. Source: Company Facebook The turnaround? Although Coach currently faces a very serious brand image problem, I have to give credit to management for trying inventive ways to turn the company around. Instead of simply trying to shape a new image for itself in the minds of target consumers, which management is trying to do via the addition of new high-priced products, the company has also focused on entirely new areas of growth. The new areas of growth primarily include men's product lines and the international segment, which makes up approximately one-third of Coach's total revenue. The Men's product line stood out for Coach, even in the company's struggling North American markets.

Shopping America American brands such as Michael Kors and Coach have been slow to tap into the rapidly growing Chinese luxury brands due to their rather limited presence in Europe and Asia. The Chinese account for one out of every four dollars spent on luxury goods globally. Coach says that a fifth of its North American sales come from Chinese tourists, which is also the fastest growing group. Part of the allure that's commonly associated with luxury goods is their sense of exclusivity and exotic-ness, and many Chinese luxury goods buyers are falling in love with American brands. By the year 2022, more than three-quarters of China's urban consumers will be earning between 60,000 yuan and 229,000 yuan (approximately $9,800 to $37,000) per year, up from 68% in 2012 and just 4% in 2000. The huge Chinese middle class with money to spend represents a prime growth opportunity for American luxury brands. The Euro's 5% gain against the dollar last year made it cheaper for Chinese nationals to shop in Miami than in Paris or Milan. The U.S. has also been easing visa restrictions for Chinese people.

Photo of Andy Rush Ouch. The increase reflects an overall market shift in luxury goods due to a few connected factors. Lets break them down: First off, theres more competition than there was five years ago. With brands like Tory Burch and Michael Kors killing it as of late, top-notch retailers like Chanel are forced to become even more elite and hence, expensive. Next, production costs are on the up. Quality leather doesnt cut it anymore brands like Gucci and Louis Vuitton need the best leather to remain on top of MK and the rest, who as we pointed out above, are already giving them a run for their money. High-end brands are also being forced to shell out more dough for quality manufactures. Lastly, they think that increasing cost of products is good for business. In a twisted fashion (literally), customers want to pay more for fancy Nancy products.

Costco Sued Over 'misleading' Ad For $99 Michael Kors Handbags Because It Is 'not An Authorized Retailer And Doesn't Sell Them In Store'

Michael Kors sues Costco for false advertising of his handbags

cheap michael kors handbags /> According to WWD , the wholesale giant sent out a nationwide Mother's Day email on April 16 promoting a variety of 'designer handbags starting at $99.99'. Included in the send-out was apparently an image showing bags with Michael Kors' signature gold MK logo. However, the complaint highlights that Costco has never been an authorized retailer of the label. Source of the problem: Upscale fashion brand Michael Kors is suing discount retailer Costco for allegedly falsely advertising its handbags at bargain prices without authorization As a result Michael Kors, who launched his eponymous fashion house in 2002, and his board of directors filed a lawsuit in a New York court last Thursday. I'm NOT the runaway bride: Monaco's Princess Charlene finally breaks her silence to brand rumours she tried to flee before wedding 'categorical lies' The point of Costco's ads is to 'lure unsuspecting consumers away from bona fide Michael Kors retailers and into Costco stores,' the complaint noted. 'When a consumer "takes the bait" and seeks to purchase Michael Kors handbags at a Costco store or on Costco's website, no such handbags are available.' Bargain basement: Costco does stock designer handbags from brands including Prada and Ralph Lauren Mr Kors, 53, who has sold off much of his company, also reportedly sent representatives into 19 different Costco branches and asked them to search the website, but was unable to find proof that his bags were on sale. Full-price designs usually range from $298 to $1,195. Michael Kors is seeking a court order to stop Costco from advertising its products, and to recoup profits plus punitive damages stemming from the alleged false ads. Arm candy: Full-price Michael Kors designs usually range from $298 to $1,195 A spokesman for Costco, based in Issaquah, Washington, was not immediately available for comment. The lawsuit resembles one that Tiffany & Co brought against Costco in February. In that case, the jeweler accused Costco of using Tiffany's michael kors handbags outlet trademarks online and on at least one in-store ring display case.

Pleads guilty to selling counterfeit handbags

Photo of Andy Rush Source: Michael Kors 10-Q Form ended on Dec 28 2013. Michael Kors' Uprising and Economic Trend Two years ago, I discovered that Michael Kors was a great company to invest in when I noticed that more consumers were buying Michael Kors accessories and handbags. I asked my female colleagues for their opinions on Michael Kors compared to Coach. Surprisingly, almost all of them confirmed that they preferred Michael Kors' handbags and accessories even though Coach was well-established and was very popular in the consumer market. Another aspect that indicates Michael Kors to be a more popular brand is its retail traffic. In the area where I live, I noticed that Michael Kors stores are getting more traffic while Coach stores are getting less. Coach's management also confirmed this trend in its latest earnings release : "We continued to be disappointed by our performance in North America, which was affected by substantially lower traffic in our stores and by our decision to limit access to our e-factory flash sales site." The third thing that makes Michael Kors a better company to invest indespite its high valuationis its Chief Creative Officer, Michael Kors, who is one of the best fashion designers in the world. His collections (bearing his name), Michael Kors and MICHAEL Michael Kors, are very popular in the luxury brand market. On the other hand, Coach's new Executive Creative Director, Stuart Vevers' creativity and designs are yet to be seen. He will be launching his first collection in September, which might help Coach revive its sales growth in North America if it becomes a huge success.

MICHAEL KORS HOLDINGS LTD

Upscale fashion accessories maker Michael Kors Holdings Ltd (KORS.N) sued Costco Wholesale Corp (COST.O) on Friday, accusing the largest U.S. warehouse club retailer of running a "bait-and-switch" false advertising scheme. According to a complaint filed in Manhattan federal court, Costco has never been an authorized retailer of Michael Kors handbags, yet it has recently run advertisements nationwide falsely suggesting that the handbags are available "starting at $99." In one example cited, Costco in April sent an email ad touting a selection of handbags for Mother's Day "starting at $99.99," several of which were Michael Kors handbags featuring the company's trademarks. But Michael Kors, which also makes shoes, watches and jewelry, said that its representatives visited Costco's website and 19 retail stores, and found none carried its handbags. On the Michael Kors website on Friday, most full-size women's handbags were priced between $298 and $1,195. The point of Costco's ads is to "lure unsuspecting consumers away from bona fide Michael Kors retailers and into Costco stores," the complaint said.

Coach is the oldest company of the four, and its growth has been slowing down considerably in the recent quarters. During the last quarter, Coach saw its revenue plunge 6% to $1.42 billion, with sales in its all-important North American market dropping 9%, which raised concerns that the brand was losing its American appeal. In sharp contrast, Michael Kors saw its North American sales leap a huge 51% and also experienced a massive 144% jump in Europe. The brand is rapidly gaining global recognition and appeal. In all likelihood, it's eating the lunches of its North American competitors such as Coach.

Disney Comparable-store sales in Europe rose 58 percent in the third quarter, the company said. "Their fashion angle is quite attractive and I feel Europeans respond to the fashion credibility that Michael Kors has," Chen said. Chief Executive Idol said he expected Europe to be a $500 million market in which the company would open 100 stores. Kors raised its full-year earnings-per-share estimate to a range of $1.80 to $1.82 from its previous range of $1.48 to $1.50. It also raised its full-year revenue forecast to about $2.1 billion from a range of $1.86 billion to $1.96 billion. Analysts had estimated full-year earnings of $1.57 per share on revenue of $2.01 billion, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S. The largest shareholder in Michael Kors, with a stake of about 16 percent, is Hong Kong-based Sportswear Holdings Ltd, led by Silas Chou and Lawrence Stroll, who have had a hand in developing fashion brands including Tommy Hilfiger and Pepe Jeans.

Top Fashion Tips To Have You Looking Your Best


Everyone wants to michael kors outlet look fashionable, but it is difficult to understand where to begin. If you are like a lot of people and don't have a subscription to a fancy fashion magazine, there is still hope for you! This article provides fashion tricks and tips so you can be a more fashionable you; read on.
Belts are a valuable accessory to improve your overall look. There are so many different styles of belts to choose from, offering endless color and design combinations to choose from. Add bright belts to simple jeans for a trendy look or wear a black one to look sophisticated.
Wearing white and black is classic and that is popular this season. Just check out the major fashion runways and you can see this combination used often. This look can be easily incorporated into your look. For example, you could wear black pants with a white shirt or you could wear a dress that's black and white. Black and white separates offer endless possibilities.
If you own a beauty kit, do not store a ton of makeup in it. Pick products in some seasonally appropriate colors that you like. Think about what you will need from the time you get up until you go to bed. Makeup can go bad if it's opened, just like other products. Makeup products can harbor bacteria, which can be transfered to your eyes and skin when applied.
If your hair is frizzy, you need to use shampoo and conditioner with moisturizing properties. It will offer protection to the cuticle and balance the level of moisture in your hair. Keep away from products that say 'volumizing,' which includes ingredients such as rice and wheat.
If you have a larger body size and wish to take the emphasis off this by appearing smaller, stay away from attention-getting patterns such as large flowers. Larger shapes can hurt your image of trying to look thin. Instead, choose a floral pattern with smaller flowers to take the emphasis away from the large parts of your body.
Every woman must have a couple of basics. You should have two pairs of dark dress pants, jeans hemmed for use with sneakers and jeans hemmed for use with heels. Let's not forget the mainstay for every woman, the little black dress.
You can get fuller lips by lining them first with a lip pencil and then blending the michael kors handbags outlet edges using a sponge applicator. Afterwords, apply some gloss. Follow up by accentuating your top lip with a bit more gloss in the center for a pouty look. You can also use eye shadow to highlight your lips. Place a tiny dot of eye shadow at the center of your lips.
Be honest when you look at yourself in the mirror and learn what needs to be highlighted as well as hidden. If you are petite, look for soft fabrics and fitted styles that help give your body length. Choose some brightly-colors pants or skirts if you want to draw attention away from your chest. Those who are pear-shaped want light colors on top and darks on the bottom.
Reading fashion magazines is not a requirement for fashionability. Applying the ideas and advice in this article should enable you to be just as stylish as someone passionate about fashion.

Coach's Brand and Current Economic Trend First of all, the luxury handbag and accessories industry is highly competitive, since barriers to entry are fairly low. Companies compete with each other in terms of brand, pricing, as well as functions and designs of handbags and accessories,talent, material, locations, and customer service. Coach became one of the top luxury handbag makers in North America because it focused on making great handbags and accessories that were affordable for middle-to-upper class consumers. While its brand is not as prestigious as other top European brands such as Louis Vuitton, Gucci and Prada, consumers are attracted to Coach because of its product designs, quality, brand and affordability. However, Coach's business model and brand are not without flaws. If a companysuch as Michael Korscan become a more popular brandthan Coach and adopts a similar business model that focuses on making great handbags, apparel and accessories for mass consumers, Coach will likely experience declining sales, disappointing growth and loss in market share. This is already the case, as shown in Coach's latest quarterly report ended on Dec. 28 2013. Coach's total North American sales decreased 9% while its total international sales increased 2%.

[ Fashionista ] Robin Givhan, the first fashion critic to win a Pulitzer, has been hired by New York magazine's The Cut to cover the spring shows this September.

Source of the problem: Upscale fashion brand Michael Kors is suing discount retailer Costco for allegedly falsely advertising its handbags at bargain prices without authorization As a result Michael Kors, who launched his eponymous fashion house in 2002, and his board of directors filed a lawsuit in a New York court last Thursday.

Bargain basement: Costco does stock designer handbags from brands including Prada and Ralph Lauren Mr Kors, 53, who has sold off much of his company, also reportedly sent representatives into 19 different Costco branches and asked them to search the website, but was unable to find proof that his bags were on sale.

COH Chart Comparable-store sales rose 41 percent in North America in the October-December holiday quarter, while larger rival Coach said last month same-store sales fell 2 percent in North America, only its third decrease in 11 years. "They (Michael Kors) are gaining market share from Coach, but it's not only Coach - it's also the little guys that are getting squeezed in a highly competitive market," Morningstar analyst Paul Swinand said. POPULAR ACCESSORIES Chen, the Citi analyst, said that Michael Kors' popularity as a brand allowed the company to be more flexible in pricing than its rivals. He said its focus on smaller handbags and accessories also presented a particular challenge to Coach. Michael Kors Chief Executive John Idol said there was strong demand for luxury items in the third quarter from Europe and North America. He said he expected the global luxury market to keep growing at the same pace, without specifying a timeframe. The Luxury Goods Worldwide Market Study of 2012 estimated that the global luxury goods market would grow to between $314 billion and $327 billion in 2015 from $251 billion in 2011.

Michael Kors sues Costco for false advertising of his handbags

"Once upon a time, Coach was the go-to brand in accessible luxury, a superlative KORS now holds," Randal Konik, analyst at brokerage Jefferies & Co, wrote in a note. Michael Kors' bag collection ranges from clutches and wristlets with a price tag of around $100 to snakeskin handbags costing around $3,000. The company also sells watches and accessories. With a market capitalization of $18.3 billion at Tuesday's close, the company has already grown bigger than Coach, which is valued at about $12.8 billion.

On the Michael Kors website on Friday, most full-size women's handbags were priced between $298 and $1,195. The point of Costco's ads is to "lure unsuspecting consumers away from bona fide Michael Kors retailers and into Costco stores," the complaint said.

Michael Kors Sues Costco Over Handbag Ad After its latest earnings call, shares traded at about $70. So analysts were very excited, too. When it comes to selling affordable luxury, Michael Kors seems to have edged out Coach ( COH ), at least for now. Its his time, says Pam Danziger, the head of Unity Marketing. Michael Kors has that buzz factor. Kors, of course, has been a judge on Project Runway since it first aired in 2004 and, after sitting out last season, has returned as a guest judge. The exposure has been important for him, says Danziger: Hes got authority as the designer of the day. When Project Runway started,11 percent of Americans knew the Kors name. Now 71 percent do, the company told Bloomberg News in March 2012. It could have been a coincidence, but just as Kors joined Project Runway, his private equity backers (which included Idol) encouraged him to start a lower-priced line, the MICHAEL Michael Kors Collection. And whileKors continues to produce runway collections and offer ultra-luxe items (this $18,000 houndstooth mink wrap is available for pre-order now), its the other line of accessories and clothesand accessories in particularthats really selling. As Idol said: Small leather goods and handbags are most important to us. For some customers, the appeal of brand-name accessories, especially ones that seem affordable (and $300, relative to $3,000, does qualify), is enduring.

Costco sued over 'misleading' ad for $99 Michael Kors handbags because it is 'not an authorized retailer and doesn't sell them in store'

Source of the problem: Upscale fashion brand Michael Kors is suing discount retailer Costco for allegedly falsely advertising its handbags at bargain prices without authorization 28, 2013. My Foolish conclusion The success of Michael Kors speaks to how well the brand knows its customer. Kors has been able to provide a line of products of high quality that represent affordable luxury. While the market has punished Coach, the company should be able to compete effectively with Kors once it transitions into more of a luxury lifestyle brand. As the U.S. economy and the job sector continue to improve, these companies and their brands should do well along the way. Do luxury retailers make the Fool's list of great growth stocks?

Fashion Tips: Always Look Your Best


It's not always easy to make your wardrobe work for you. Trying to mix or match, pair pieces and find accessories can take some time and a little know how. The advice below will help you solve your fashion woes.
Casual up-dos are a good way to pick up the hair from your shoulders. Long hair is a real pain during busy times. When you're out of time, put your hair up in a bun!
Opting to wear sheer clothes can give off that sexy look, but you need to be mindful of just how see through this clothing is. If your pants, skirt or shirt are too sheer in private areas, the result can be a cheap or trashy look that will not make you feel classy.
Try a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner if you struggle with frizz. A layer of moisturizer will protect the cuticle and prevent it from absorbing the dampness in the air. Products that claim to 'volumize' should also be avoided. Also, beware of anything that contains wheat or rice in the ingredients.
Don't seek perfection, as far as fashion goes. For starters, there is no one who is perfect. Also, when you seek perfection, you are trying to hard. Some fantastic looks can be found on the runways that include a simple 'flaw' and an otherwise fashionable outfit.
Clean out your closet periodically. You may think that multiple options are better; however, this is seldom the case. If your clothes are cramped inside your closet space, you might never find the outfit you're looking for. Rummage through your wardrobe, eliminating anything that you don't wear or that doesn't fit. Having a few staple pieces in your wardrobe is much more useful than having outdated clothing hanging in your closet.
If you want to add some pizzazz during those warm-weather months, try dying your hair a brighter, bolder color. You have to maintain healthy hair for the color not to fade. Dyes are harsh and can damage hair, so use a quality conditioner on a regular basis to counteract this.
Know your figure's strong points and its weaker ones. If you are petite, look for soft fabrics and fitted styles that help give your body length. Use conspicuous details such as brighter colors or patterns in another area to draw attention away from areas which you want to minimize, such as a large bust or waistline. If you have a pear shape then you should try to wear light tops with darker bottoms.
Don't let negative commentary about your manner of dress get you down. Not everyone has to look like they belong in Hollywood. All you really need to do is be confident and comfortable in how you appear. Sooner or later, you'll attract the people that like your style.
As you know, it can be difficult to get cheap michael kors handbags the most from your wardrobe. There are a million ways you can pair fashionable items together and still create an inspired look. This article can provide you great fashion advice.
