Cole Haan Brings New Design Concept Store to the West Coast

Costa Mesa, CA – October 13, 2016 – Cole Haan, the storied American lifestyle brand and retailer, announces the opening of its newest flagship at South Coast Plaza, in Costa Mesa, California. Located at the unparalleled luxury shopping center, the store is influenced by a residential concept of a home and highlights the full range of merchandise, including footwear, apparel, handbags and accessories. South Coast Plaza marks the first West Coast location to open with the new store design concept.

“We are delighted to bring the Cole Haan retail experience to one of California’s most acclaimed shopping locations,” says Cole Haan CEO, Jack Boys. “As shopping continues to evolve, we’re excited to be at the forefront of redefining the consumer experience.”

Showcasing an all metal and glass storefront with backlit frosted transom, Cole Haan at South Coast Plaza is the first of its kind and the perfect juxtaposition to the natural elegance and warm interior within the store. Custom lighting and flexible millwork create distinct product presentations for both female and male customers. By highlighting the full expression of merchandise in a series of well-appointed rooms, Cole Haan has created a shopping experience to exemplify the comforts of an elegant home. Additionally, neutral color palettes throughout the store seamlessly blend traditional and modern design aesthetic, through the use of large scale marble mosaic patterns in the front foyer.

To coincide with the opening, Cole Haan South Coast Plaza will be partnering with the United Cerebral Palsy charity for a VIP event, with 10% of the proceeds from the event benefitting the cause.

“South Coast Plaza is the ideal place to showcase our innovative footwear and accessories as we expand our presence for our West Coast customers,” said David Maddocks, Chief Marketing Officer and General Manager of Business Development at Cole Haan. “We are thrilled to bring the Cole Haan brand to life in such a beautiful setting.”
