It is with great excitement and enthusiasm that Jackie O’Brien and her husband Nic Jones, announce the official opening of Whistler’s first multi-brand fashion lifestyle boutique.

Originally launched in Vancouver back in 2005, the store relocated to Toronto for a highly successful ten year run, firmly establishing Jonathan+Olivia as one of North America’s premium independent fashion retailers.

“We saw what the rest of the world already knows. Whistler has quickly become the globe's favorite year-round destination with a vibrant village, epic skiing and snowboarding, world class restaurants and bars, five-star accommodation, and arguably the best mountain bike park in the world. It also is the ideal location for a specialty retailer like Jonathan+Olivia as all it was missing was a little bit of high end shopping. These are all great reasons to open a business here and raise a family,” commented Jackie. “We could not be happier to be a part of the community.”

The new Whistler location will differ from it’s East coast predecessor in that it will offer a softer selection of global brands for men and women from the runway to contemporary mixed with high end streetwear and the most sought after sneakers and desirable lifestyle objects. Curated by Jackie’s discerning eye, the assortment of ‘luxury casual’ items will appeal to the appetites of international travellers, vacationing families, Vancouverites and locals alike. All of whom can shop during store hours or book a private shopping experience with the owners both in store or virtually.

Brands carried include: Marni to Nike, Maison Margiela to Adidas, Vetements to Reebok, Yohji Yamamoto to Hunter and backed by great brands Acne Studios, James Perse, Arc’teryx Veilance, Ulla Johnson, Isabel Marant Etoile, John Elliot, Sacai and denim from APC, R13, Re/Done, Current Elliott and Frame Denim.

Jonathan+Olivia will kick off their new Whistler boutique with an in-store trunk show featuring Sean Pettit’s Super Proof Brand over the Labour Day weekend and a launch party at the Firerock hosted by Gibbons Whistler on Saturday, September the 1st.

The Jonathan+Olivia flagship store is located in the heart of the village at Mountain Square, in the lower ground Gallery Row attached to the Hilton Hotel. In addition to the store, collections are readily available at the J+O online shop with worldwide shipping. Store hours and additional details can be found online at www.jonathanandolivia.com.
