Los Angeles-based Johnny Was will open its first Orange County boutique at Fashion Island in mid-November. Located adjacent to Nordstrom, the 1,329 square foot store will be defined by a juxtaposition of beautifully crafted, luxurious, flowing clothing and gorgeous accessories, shown against the rough edges of the store’s handcrafted industrial look.
The store will carry every line by the designer label, including the Johnny Was Collection, offering the ultimate boho chic, while JWLA represents the quintessential California surfer chic. The Biya Collection offers timeless, eclectic and stylish silhouettes that are bold and distinctive. Pete & Greta brings lifestyle basics with an edge, while 4 Love and Liberty caters to the fashion-forward sophisticate. 3J Workshop feminizes the traditional menswear shirt with fine workmanship and fit.
