Hello Friends,

After 10 wonderful years living and operating our business in Toronto we have made the decision to move our operations back to the West Coast.

As some of you may or may not know, Jackie O’Brien Jones first opened Jonathan+Olivia in Vancouver back in 2005 with the Toronto store opening in 2008, but now her heart is calling her home and the family is jumping into a new adventure in Whistler, BC.

The international playground that is Whistler, less than 1 1/2 hours north of Vancouver, is quickly becoming the globe's favourite year-round destination with a vibrant village, epic skiing and snowboarding, four championship golf courses, world class restaurants and bars, five-star accommodation, spas, arguably the best mountain bike park in the world and now high end shopping. Perhaps most importantly for Nic and Jackie, a pretty magical place to raise their young son.

The Jonathan+Olivia flagship store will be in the heart of the village and in addition to this main store, J+O are opening an adjacent luxury store showcasing ready-to-wear, handbags, footwear and lifestyle objects from the world’s finest - as imagined by Jackie. They have received an overwhelming positive response from the international design community. Their offering both in store and online will be more spectacular than ever.

Now, back to our second home - Toronto. We may not be here in bricks and mortar but we will always be here for you online and will continue to explore new ways to serve and support our east coast clientele through e-commerce and virtual shopping innovation so stay tuned for more details to come on that front.

We are officially making the move next month and before we go, have a very special offering. Both Nic and Jackie have been in this game for a very long and time and while on the ride they have amassed a personal collection of pieces that is rather special - and never for sale. Until now. Nic and Jackie are super excited to announce that in Toronto on July 3 and 4 we will be presenting the "Jonathan+Olivia Archives." During the days leading up to this fashion event the J+O instagram will reveal select pieces of the archive that will finally be for sale and some the personal anecdotes behind them. In addition to The Archives event, the entire store will be on sale until they close their doors and head West on July 5th.

The Whistler store will launch beginning of September with new Fall Collections and the J+O online shop fully stocked. We feel it’s important to point out that all Toronto credits will be honoured online and at Jonathan+Olivia Whistler locations.

Friends, from the bottom of our very full hearts Jonathan+Olivia, ie Jackie and Nic, would like to thank you for our decade long Toronto adventure and are grateful beyond measure for your amazing loyalty and support.

See you on the other side.
