It's the end of an era for Juicy Couture and its rhinestone-encrusted terry cloth tracksuits. As mentioned previously, the ill-fated Cali brand is shutting down all of its U.S. stores by the end of June. That's not all: despite the news that the label—which was sold by parent company Kate Spade & Co. last fall to Authentic Brands Group (a previous version of this story incorrectly referred to the company as American Brands Group)—recently inked a deal with trendy shoemaker Steve Madden and a non-exclusive licensing agreement with Kohl's, staff at several LA locations tells us the merch will only be available internationally after the brick-and-mortar shutterings.
We can confirm that Juicy's Pasadena and Malibu locations are now closed, and their remaining shops (excluding Camarillo Outlets, which is dunzo next Tuesday) are offering deep discounts on remaining inventory. The Americana at Brand store is unloading its merch for 50% off before they shutter this Saturday, as is Westfield Century City (which closes Tuesday, June 24) and Rodeo Drive, which closes at the end of this month. Staff at the Santa Monica Place location tells us they're offering 60% off before their doors close on Saturday, while everything at the Citadel Outlets location is slashed at 70% off (they tell us they're closing "sometime next week").
