As the founder of the "original tee", Los Angeles-based Michael Stars has pioneered casual chic since its founding more than two decades ago, when a chance meeting with a beachside artist inspired South African-native Michael Cohen to launch a unisex T-shirt line. After meeting his future wife, Suzanne, the pair created the Michael Stars known today for its wide selection of perfectly fitted tees, signature "shine" fabric, ultra-soft layering pieces and plush cashmere sweaters. Michael Stars opened its first store in Manhattan Beach in 2001. Nine years later, the brand has grown to 10 retail stores and distribution throughout all 50 states and internationally. Michael Stars styles have been featured on the pages of top-selling magazines such as Vogue, Lucky, Elle and InStyle, and the brand counts such celebrities as Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox, Halle Berry and Jessica Beal among its fans.
The Michael Stars Eyewear Collection is designed for young-at-heart, fun-loving, conscientious customers who love color. Styles are fresh, wearable and lightweight. Accents are minimal, with square rivets and discreet logo applications. The sunwear and eyewear play off of the Michael Stars seasonal color palettes and are an extension of this casual lifestyle look.
