Luxury Retailer Vince Opening First OC Store At Fashion Island

Fashion Island has announced that the luxury retailer Vince will open its first Orange County location at the center in late spring, 2011. The Los Angeles-based contemporary lifestyle brand will offer its men and women’s collections, including wardrobe staples of high quality basics and modern styles for which the brand is known.

The Fashion Island store will include the brand’s famous cashmere, leatherwear, trousers, detailed tops and outerwear. In the coming year, Vince will license handbags and footwear, which will be available at the new store in late Fall 2011.

Vince was launched in 2002 by Rea Laccone and Christopher LaPolice and has grown to 16 stores throughout the country. The brand will soon expand with international locations, including opening a boutique in London in 2011.
As Orange County’s premier coastal shopping and dining experience, Fashion Island features specialty boutiques, world-class department stores and a wide assortment of restaurants and cafes. Visited by more than 13 million people annually, Fashion Island offers a sophisticated yet relaxed atmosphere that is distinctively Southern California.

Owned by Irvine Company, Fashion Island is home to Orange County’s only Neiman Marcus, as well as Nordstrom, Bloomingdale’s, Bloomingdale’s Home Store and Macy’s. For more information, please visit
