Oscar de la Renta Ltd. is seeing the sunny side of retail by opening a South Coast Plaza store in February.
The new 2,600-square-foot boutique will be the second the designer will have unveiled in Southern California within a 12-month span. When the South Coast Plaza space opens in mid-February on the shopping center's third level, it will be the designer's seventh freestanding store. Like the Melrose Place location, the new space will house the designer's ready-to-wear, accessories, shoes, handbags, jewelry and select items that are only offered in his freestanding stores. The interiors will be similar in that the South Coast Plaza store will have Dominican coral stone and high-gloss white anigre wood. There will also be a shoe catwalk and an even-ingwear area.
