If you've got to go to a mall in Orange County, make it an Orange County mall. One with dogs in strollers and kids on leashes. One that's outdoors and boasts an ocean view. One at which high-priced apparel stores are outnumbered only by decorative, water-sucking fountains and koi ponds. One that's perched so prominently on the bourgeoisie cutting edge that it was an early adopter of Pinkberry, boasts a record-breakingly tall Christmas tree each year, and is in the midst of transforming its faux-Spanish décor (which is so old-new-Orange County) into faux-Italian décor. There's a kind of artistry to Fashion Island. As its name suggests, the center embraces the idea that, even in a county replete with chain retail, a visit to the mall can represent escape.
