A new roster of shops and restaurants drop anchor in Newport Beach.
Set on the Newport Harbor, Lido Marina Village’s makeover is a fresh cocktail of distinctive tenants: Quintessential SoCal designer Jenni Kayne (jennikayne.com) bows with a boutique filled with staples from her Fall 2016 collection (sheer lace silhouettes, striped blouses) and earthy home essentials. Next door, high-end Japanese standard-bearer Nobu (noburestaurants.com) opens its two-story, indoor-outdoor venue this winter, complete with an elliptical skylight and a dramatic cruise-ship-inspired grand staircase. Lifestyle brand Serena & Lily (serenaandlily.com) unveils its fifth location and Design Shop experience with on-site advisers, 300-plus fabric swatches, and everything from bedding to wallpaper. Inside stylist Tera Stephens’ modern retreat, Tress Apothecary + Salon (tressapothecaryandsalon.com), OC denizens can indulge in a color, cut or mani/pedi. New York perfumery Le Labo (lelabofragrances.com) devotes an entire boutique to its multi-sensory, bespoke scents. And luxe contemporary label Velvet by Graham & Spencer (velvet-tees.com) opens this fall with its Holiday 2016 collection (classic LBDs and high-collared separates). • DANIELLE DiMEGLIO
