Known for its traditionally tailored shirts, high quality knitwear, classic polo shirts, Italian leather shoes, bespoke leather luggage and stylish accessories, Rodd & Gunn is committed to sourcing the finest yarns and fabrics from around the world. The result is a collection made from premium Italian fabrics, plus luxe linens, denims, cottons, wools and leathers.
“Rodd & Gunn’s impressive attention to detail with its menswear – from its exceptional fabrication to 100-percent Italian cotton shirting and expertly crafted luggage – makes it a terrific addition to our collection of top-tier retailers at Fashion Island,” said Easther Liu, chief marketing officer for Irvine Company Retail Properties.
The fall line, inspired by the rugged coastline of southern New Zealand, yields luxuriously soft knits and functional fabrics with weather and wind resistant coatings, as well as outerwear with urban design, updated patterns, reversible jackets and re-imagined classics.
“We jumped at the chance to open a store at Fashion Island here in Newport Beach – we feel the Newport Beach community embodies the ideal Rodd & Gunn customer,” said Mike Beagley, managing director for Rodd & Gunn.
Rodd & Gunn will be at 401 Newport Center Dr., Newport Beach, next to ‘Lette Macarons, near Nordstrom.
