Both men’s and women’s will also feature a shop that houses new and exclusive brand offerings, rotating every two weeks.

Our primary objective is to bring the best of PacSun and showcase the best of our industry at one of the world’s most influential fashion and shopping destinations,” said Gary Schoenfeld, PacSun chief executive.

“At more than 10,000 square feet, the store is much larger than our typical footprint and includes expansive selling space and distinct merchandising assortments that will feature many of our key branded partners including: Nike, Hurley, Vans, Diamond Supply Co., Modern Amusement, Beats by Dr. Dre, Brandy Melville and our exclusive collaboration with Kendall & Kylie Jenner.”
