The British just keep on coming to San Diego. Now that gloriously gothy brand AllSaints has invaded Tommy Bahama's former space, Topshop is also making their way down Cali's coast with a massive new store in Fashion Valley, expected to open this fall.
Located over on level one near JCPenney, the fast fashion retailer's 17,500-square-foot space will also house their stylish men's counterpart, Topman. It's all part of the London-based chain's major West Coast expansion, which brought the Brit brand to a handful of Nordstrom stores a few years back and to LA's The Grove just last year.
Per Fashion Valley director of marketing Chris Lane, the London-based retailer will "up the fashion game in San Diego." We concur. If LA's insane grand opening block party is any indication, we expect SD's bash to be just as wild.
