Newport Beach is officially Cali's next big shopping destination. Thanks to Lido Marina Village's upcoming revamp filled with rad retailers—including Elyse Walker's massive second shop—we've never wanted to plan an OC shopping trip more. Soon, we'll have one more reason to hit the road.
The folks at the oceanfront lifestyle center tell us that Australian apothecary Aesop is set to open it's first-ever Orange County shop this spring. "As with all Aesop locations, the Lido Marina Village signature store will present a unique and individual design," an LMV rep add. "The store will carry skin, hair, and body care products of the highest quality plant-based and laboratory formulated ingredients, particularly those with the greatest anti-oxidant properties, to provide the most effective and enjoyable experience."
YES. Check out Aesop's sleek DTLA shop design for a taste of what to expect at it's Newport bow, and stay tuned for official opening details.
