With successful restaurants, such as and Marché Moderne to its name, South Coast Plaza has kept itself in the dining and lifestyle news. Further making splashes, this Orange County, California shopping mecca has recently unveiled a new ultra high-end wing dubbed "The Penthouse," providing a luxurious shopping and dining environment for consumers.

The sophisticated mix of luxury brands found in the new addition includes Christian Louboutin (the only boutique of the red-soled shoe brand in Orange County), Oscar de la Renta and Italian menswear label Canali. Located on Level 3 of the shopping center, next to Nordstrom, the 20,000-square-foot wing is also home to the recently launched SoCa boutique, the flagship store for St. John’s latest contemporary concept.

The Penthouse will appeal to "a clientele who wants a more private shopping experience," said Anton Segerstrom, partner, South Coast Plaza. In keeping with the private feel, Louis Vuitton plans to open a VIP suite in the new wing.
