Michael Stars

As the founder of the “original tee”, Los Angeles-based Michael Stars has pioneered casual chic tees since its founding more than two decades ago, when a chance meeting with a beachside artist inspired South Africa-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 12 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, Courteney Cox, Angelina Jolie and Jessica Biel among its fans.
