Splendid Southport closing March 24, Johnny Was moving in

Splendid LA is leaving Chicago’s Southport Corridor on March 24, and retailer Johnny Was, is moving in.

According to their website:

“Just like the universal and timeless appeal of a great song, Johnny Was designs clothes that cross cultures and defy trends. With a bohemian spirit and a true sense of authenticity, we take our inspiration from anything that is beautiful, genuine and special—a striking piece of artwork, the luxurious hand-stitching on a vintage dress or the natural simplicity of a vibrant bougainvillea.

 Our signature embroideries and effortless silhouettes are unparalleled. After more than 30 years of our artisan-inspired stitch work and luxe fabrications, the undying allure speaks for itself. For the woman looking to showcase her personal style, while appreciating the thoughtful details of timeless techniques. An aesthetic that embraces our California-based lifestyle but always with a global vision.

 It’s the gorgeous details in life that make it beautiful, and that’s what we strive to create with Johnny Was. Embrace the beauty, look beyond and enjoy the journey.\”

Johnny Was has stores all over the country and is expanding rapidly. It is also sold at high-end department stores such as Neiman Marcus.
