The Active team is excited to report that Lorna Jane — one of Australia’s most successful activewear lines — is slated to open its first store stateside. It only seems natural that the 21 year old brand chose the West Coast for its home. After all, LA is one of the most active cities in the country, with incredible weather and unlimited access to the ocean and the mountains. The first store will be located in Malibu and will quickly be followed by a second and third store in Santa Monica and Marina del Rey.
Currently, Lorna Jane has 120 stores across Australia, 2 stores in South Africa, and a global wholesale and online business. That is pretty impressive considering the founder, Lorna Jane Clarkson, started the business from her dining room floor. The design-driven pieces definitely speak to the girl that isn’t willing to sacrifice style for function, as evidenced with its optimistic color combos and sleek styling. We also love the on-trend details and accents like ruched panels, heathered knits, and contrast zippers. We will keep you posted on events that lead up to the opening…Welcome to LA Lorna Jane! – Jeanine Pesce
