Alice + Olivia, AG Opening at Fashion Island

A 2,000-square-foot boutique for Alice + Olivia by Stacey Bendet opened its doors for business Nov. 18 at the Fashion Island retail center in Newport Beach, Calif.

The Alice + Olivia shop will offer exclusive vintage pieces and artwork as well as its contemporary looks. The Fashion Island store will be the brand’s 35th U.S. boutique. The store will close briefly after the holiday and reopen in 2017. During the hiatus, the store will add permanent design features to the space, said a Fashion Island representative.

It was also announced that high-end denim brand AG will open a new shop in Fashion Island in early Spring 2017, said Sid Dey, AG’s director of retail.

“We have a loyal and fashionable customer base in Orange County, and we are incredibly excited that Fashion Island will be home to our new flagship store within the area,” Dey said. “The space will have the same look and feel as our Beverly Hills flagship store, with custom millwork and fixtures created and manufactured by our in-house store design team at AG.”

Fashion Island is owned by the Irvine Company. The retail center’s anchors include Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Bloomingdale’s and Macy’s. It also is the address for specialty shops Trina Turk, Vince, Joie and Halston Heritage.
