Since 2014, Olivine Gabbro has had a freestanding store on Greenwich Avenue in Greenwich, Conn., which closed in January. Starting this month, the collection will be available exclusively at Mitchells Stores, including Richards of Greenwich, Wilkes Bashford of San Francisco and by appointment at Mitchells. Gabbro’s collection will also be available at mitchellstores.com.
“We are always searching for new ways to excite our imaginative and forward thinking clients. The bespoke service that Grace [Kang, designer] has incorporated into her elegant collection speaks directly to our ladies. The relationship just makes sense,” said Bob Mitchell, co-chief executive officer of Mitchell Stores.
Known for its contemporary classic designs, Olivine Gabbro showed its collection during New York Fashion Week in September. The collection offers made-to-measure and bespoke services and was founded by Kang and her aunt, Sue Neumann, president, in 2009.
Mitchells is planning a launch event for Olivine Gabbro at Wilkes Bashford on March 10.
