JACK SPADE, the stylish men’s brand known for its apparel, bags and small goods that are at once fashionable and practical, will open its first Orange County store next month at Fashion Island in Newport Beach.
JACK SPADE is the epitome of a relaxed, understated but fashionable lifestyle, featuring classic sportswear, accessories, small goods such as wallets, key chains and travel kits, and an array of bags including brief cases, messenger bags, computer cases and duffles.
“We are thrilled to open our first JACK SPADE store in Newport Beach at Fashion Island and look forward to introducing the customers to our brand… it also means more trips for our team to the West Coast which is never a bad thing,” said Cuan Hanly, Vice President and General Manager of JACK SPADE.
In 1996, the JACK SPADE brand was born from the idea that useful items could be both utilitarian and stylish. Building on its reputation for quality and function, the brand launched an apparel collection in fall 2009. Today JACK SPADE has a devoted following with five retail stores and distribution in top doors worldwide including Bloomingdale’s and Nordstrom.
“We are excited to bring the first JACK SPADE boutique to Orange County,” said Laura Davis, Senior Marketing Director of Fashion Island. “Fashion Island has a notable mix of exclusive merchants and JACK SPADE is a unique brand to add to our retail collection that will surely be embraced by our sophisticated customer.”
JACK SPADE will be located between the Iris Fountain and Macy’s.
About JACK SPADE:
JACK SPADE began in a warehouse on Warren Street in 1996 from the idea that useful items could be both utilitarian and stylish. We believe in offering men items with honest, thoughtful design and practical purpose. It all started with waxed cotton fabrics and heavy canvas used to make a few bags for friends. In 2009 we took our reputation for well-made, functional and stylish products and applied it to apparel. We returned to the aesthetic of simple, purposeful design and sourced the best materials that improve with age and gain character with use. Now 5 years later, JACK SPADE can be purchased online at www.jackspade.com, in any of our 5 free-standing stores in the U.S. and top wholesale partners including Barneys, Bloomingdale’s and Nordstrom amongst others.
