LOS ANGELES — Calypso St. Barth is in a California state of mind.
Over the last two months the brand has expanded in Northern California by opening stores at the Stanford Shopping Center in Palo Alto and Santana Row in San Jose, and now it is heading to Southern California, where stores are due to open at Westfield Century City in Los Angeles in July and later this summer in Malibu and Montecito. The retail expansion in California is part of a larger domestic store push that will take Calypso from 39 units now to 45 by the end of the year.
