There are some benefits to playing host to some of the biggest designer names out there. Even the most seasoned shoppers would be hard pressed to find a spot where high-end labels like Gucci, Brunello Cuchinelli, and Baccarat rub shoulders with their contemporary counterparts Coach, Stuart Weitzman, and Tadashi Shoji. Toss in some fast-fashion stalwarts and it’s a true gem. Thanks to its special relationship with designers, South Coast Plaza enlisted some of the best to create special items to celebrate the center’s golden 50th anniversary.

The roster reads like a who’s-who of the fashion world. Standbys like Gucci, Valentino, and Versace all created limited-edition bags that will only be available to South Coast Plaza’s shoppers. Picking up some ready-to-wear from Tadashi and Roberto Cavalli will ensure that nobody else has the same dress, especially when some items are truly one-of-a-kind or have a limited run of just three or five items worldwide. Bottega Veneta and Kate Spade created totes for the occasion, taking their most popular silhouettes and giving them a makeover via new shades and patterns.

Jewelry labels got in on the action, too. Mikimoto created a two-strand pearl choker and Dior crafted a special 36 mm Dior VIII Grand Bal Plisse Ruban. For those who want to get in on the festivities without a major purchase, Starbucks is giving customers the chance to get limited-edition beans and a special Golden Carousel Frappuccino at the Crate & Barrel/Macy’s Home Store wing location. Godiva Chocolate is also dressing up its signature gold box with a special commemorative 50th anniversary sleeve. All of the items, from the luxe bags and shoes to the coffee, won’t be around forever. Anyone wanting to flaunt their SCP pride or get something that’ll stand out from the rest needs to act fast. See you at South Coast Plaza!
