The Premier Destination for a Shopping “Stay-cation”
There’s a rather extensive text chain on my phone right now containing the gleeful thoughts and plans of my group of mom-friends who could all use a girl’s weekend away, with a spring-full of options to save the date. Per usual, even though we typically opt for spa escapes, wining and dining on our little weekend get togethers, there is already chatter around shopping in the feed.
Spring has already sprung upon California’s premium shopping outlet destination, and located a mere 90-minute drive from South OC, Desert Hills made its way to the top of the list. There are only five of us, and over 180 outlets to choose from, which counts out to about 36 per person. More than enough to lose ourselves over a long weekend, while we all update our closets of outdated accessories, buy early birthday presents for the kiddos, and even bring home a thank you to a partner here or there for the delightful escape.
I’m particularly excited to explore a trio of the shopping destination’s latest luxe collections: Santoni, Isabel Marant and MACKAGE. A sought-after luxury shoe brand, Santoni is renowned for its excellent craftsmanship, using only the finest materials (leather, suede, exotic skins) to create wide range of shoes – from classic dress to more casual styles – are all handmade in Italy by skilled artisans.
A French fashion designer, Isabel Marant’s effortlessly chic and bohemian-inspired attire are characterized by a mix of masculine and feminine elements, incorporating a range of textures, patterns and fabrics. Think oversized silhouettes, unique prints and ruffled details resulting in high-end and streetwear that is at once luxurious and wearable.
Canadian luxury brand MACKAGE specializes in supremely stylish and functional outerwear for men and women – collections that combine only the finest of leather, down and wool materials with signature tailored silhouettes, dramatic styling and precision details for the ultimate outdoor experiences.
With shops from Banana Republic to Tag Heuer, athleisure staples like Alo Yoga and Athleta, and new storefronts like Buck Mason, it doesn’t matter your style: the destination is the draw. The Desert Hills Premium Outlets boast the best mix of renowned icons and revered retailers at up to 65% off every day. No matter where we end up, you can bet we’ll incorporate it into the plan.
