Michael Stars Opens First O.C. Boutique at Fashion Island

Michael Stars, pioneer of the Luxury tee shirt, has opened its first Orange County boutique at Fashion Island.

Michael Stars is best known for embracing the potential of the humble “T-shirt” and has been a continual pioneer in creating “casual couture” since its founding in 1986. The Los Angeles based, family-run company remains a leader in the women’s contemporary market, distinguished by its large selection of styles, exuberant colors and comfortable fabrics.

The new store occupies 1,911 square feet and incorporates a new design concept which introduces natural elements to the décor such as distressed floors and woodgrain fixtures. Clean architectural lines and white colored walls showcase the strong color palettes and style assortment the Michaels Stars collection embodies. The store also has a new storefront which includes natural wood louvers and LED lights which illuminate the logo from below.

The new store features Michael Stars renowned collections, including basic tees and tanks as well as outerwear, dress and cashmere collections. In addition, the store also carries the recently launched accessories division including belts, hats scarves and eyewear.
