Michael Kors and longtime partner/boyfriend Lance LePere are finally tying the knot!
Life & Style reprots that the famous fashion couple were spotted going in into New York, Manhattan City Hall early this week in order to “seal the deal” by obtaining their marriage license. A bystander revealed to the the Marquis of Fashion that: “They were both very casually dressed. (Michael Kors) was really nice and let the girls at the office take his picture.”
A rep for noted designer and “Project Runway” host Kors confirmed the good news to Women’s Wear Dailyand Page Six, releasing the following statement on the designer’s behalf: “Lance and I are very excited to finally be able to have the opportunity to marry in our home state after many years together. “We have no plans for a major party, but we will be getting married privately.”
Kors spoke on his relationship with Lance LePere to New York Magazine. From the article that ran last year (summer): “It was in Paris that he and LePere fell in love. They’d known each other since 1990, when LePere joined the company as an intern, but there was something about being together abroad that solidified things. “We share a certain level of taste,” LePere says, “an American point of view, and I think we like to play with Americana. Over the years and the day-to-day process of dreaming together, things just naturally fell into place.” They started taking their meals together at the Parisian outpost of Joe Allen. “We could have quesadillas, they had cranberry juice,” Kors says. “I don’t know that either of us was really accepting the French lifestyle.”
Michael Kors and his partner, Lance Le Pere, share a sophisticated apartment in the iconic West Village neighborhood of Manhattan. Along with architect Glenn Gissler, the couple transformed their modern, minimalist apartment into a home. “We wanted to be surrounded by elements of sleek, classic interiors by George Nelson, Mies van der Rohe and Knoll, and give a little wink to the seventies because that’s when I think New York was so much fun,”
All the best to the newly weds! from the Marquis of Fashion, Fashion Collections Team, CONGRATULATIONS!!!! We are very happy for You!
