Beautifully weaving innovative fashion with the vibrant styles of bohemian beach culture, Planet Blue adds to the community’s 45 confirmed restaurants and shops.
“At Buckhead Atlanta, we are striving to strike a balance of first-to-market, best-in-class and international fashion icons,” said Jeff Zeigler, senior managing director of retail services at Oliver McMillan. “Planet Blue’s creative, colorful and casual style aligns with our distinct approach to curate an unrivaled shopping experience for our guests.”
Beginning 20 years ago in Malibu as a tiny shop of organic cotton clothing, Planet Blue has grown into an international omni-channel specialty designer and retailer. With shops from California to Japan, Planet Blue is loved as the original purveyor of the bohemian beach chic aesthetic. Its laid back, welcoming atmosphere has remained an enclave for celebrities and in-the-know locals. Planet Blue will open a 3,200 square-foot boutique on Buckhead Avenue.
“We're proud to bring our first store in the Southeast to a true fashion destination among the celebrated luxury brands of the world at Buckhead Atlanta,” said Planet Blue vice president of retail David Lindell. “The immense online growth and overwhelming excitement we’ve experienced from our customers throughout this region inspired us to bring our signature boutique experience and sun-kissed lifestyle home to Buckhead. We aspire to provide more than just fashionable product; we want every customer to embrace her personal style and make her own waves.”
Buckhead Atlanta opened to the community in September 2014. There are currently 31 retailers and restaurants already open, with another 11 tenants scheduled to open their doors between now and the end of summer.
