RYU Apparel Inc., creators of urban athletic apparel, secured its second Californian location within Fashion Island, Newport Beach’s premier shopping destination. Fashion Island is Irvine Company’s jewel and is home to many of the top quality international brands that are all showcased in open-air elegance, making it a top draw for tourists and locals in Southern California. “Fashion Island sees itself as a peerless luxury shopping experience uniquely situated minutes from Newport Beach’s sandy shores.” (Los Angeles Times)

Newport Beach in Orange County is the epitome of sophisticated coastal style with chic luxury boutiques, cafés and restaurants on lushly landscaped piazzas accented by fountains and palm trees.

“We are incredibly lucky to have been awarded a storefront in this coveted location” said Marcello Leone, CEO. “Newport Beach and the Orange County area are world famous for embodying the vibrant, healthy and athletically-minded Southern California lifestyle. Fashion Island is the perfect combination with our Abbot Kinney location in Venice Beach, to enter the US west coast market to build our new category of urban athletic apparel.”

RYU Apparel Inc. earlier this week said it secured its first Californian location on iconic Abbot Kinney Boulevard, in Venice Beach.

The Vancouver-based company has two stores in Vancouver and one each in West Vancouver, Burnaby and Toronto, Canada.
