As Michael Kors celebrates his 30th year in fashion, and Steve Jobs steps down as CEO from a company he co-founded 35 years ago, it’s a good time to acknowledge that these two men have a few things in common:
Both are leaders in their fields. Steve Jobs is known for creating slick, minimalist gadget designs and Michael Kors is known for designing chic American sportswear.
Both are the faces of their respected companies. Each personality has become synonymous with each brand.
Both have a penchant for classic black clothing, but definitely started out on the other end of the spectrum. In the 70s and 80s, Steve Jobs wore bare feet around the Apple campus and three-piece suits to speaking engagements. In more recent years, Jobs found one style and stuck to it.
And though he tried many fads during his younger years, Michael Kors admits that he now always wears the same thing. “I always pack two black jackets, loads of black T-shirts, loads of white jeans. I feel a little fresh and glamorous and graphic”.
While these two men may not have been too daring with color in their wardrobes lately, they’re both true American icons and their little black numbers have only helped elevate them to cult icon status. Their legacies will live on for years to come.
