Love The *Space You’re In

 

L*Space designer Monica Wise graced us with her creative genius at our Newport Beach location this past Monday.  We were given a tour through the new items for Summer 2015, the stories behind the inspiration, and fits and construction of each carefully thought out piece.

 

 

But what does the “L” in L*Space stand for?

 

 

“The ‘L’ represents all of the things that I value and want.  Love, laughter, life.  So I wanted to create a space for those things,”  Wise said.

 

 

 

 

 

And that is exactly what she did! Inspirations for “The Water Is Waiting” include a honeymoon spent in Maldives, prints that reminisce past season colors, and functional fits for the easy beach to street look!

 

The collection features perfect pieces that we all love for lounging and living.  One thing that sets the L*Space brand apart is that all swimwear is solely made in Southern California.

 

 

 

 

Every piece from the summer collection feature a little something special.  Take the Kaella Bijoux top.  “Bijoux” means jewelry in French.  The piece shown in the middle of the bandeau top is removable and can be clasped virtually anywhere.  The top can also be worn without the piece as a hardware-free bandeau.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Another great piece is the Sunset Tunic.  Amazingly lightweight material with eyelets allover.  This is a great convertible piece, perfect over a bikini or with a camisole under and jeans.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thank you again Monica and her amazing team for visiting us in Newport Beach and creating more pieces to obsess over!

A Year of Highlights from Molly Brown’s

The New Year almost upon us! Right when you finally got used to writing 2014 on all of your date stamps, it’s time to forge that 4 to a 5.

 

For most of us, the New Year brings a feeling of a clean slate.  People say things like, “This is my year!” or “I’m so glad that year is over!”

In light of the New Year, it is also important to look back and see how much you have grown!

We took time to highlight our biggest moments in 2014:

 

-In February, famous blog duo, Natasha Oakley & Devin Brugman from A Bikini A Day, visited our Las Vegas store in the Cosmopolitan.  They checked out up and coming brand, Dolcessa with one of our fit specialists.

 

 

 

 

-Molly Brown’s General Manager, Rebecca, got married to her longtime sweetheart, Tony in May.  She is pictured on the left below with her husband.  Some of the Molly Brown’s team were able to attend and are pictured on the right.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

-In August Molly Brown’s Swimwear was featured in an OC spread in the magazine US Airways as the hottest retailer in Orange County in.

 

-We officially announced the opening of our LA store, located in the Sunset Plaza.
