Jarbo, a “lifestyle clothing collection with European designer sensibility,” according to the company’s website, is bringing its edgy and modern sophisticated fashions to Wellesley in the former Optical Designs location at 72 Central St. (Optical Designs is still in town, located just a couple doors down at 68 Central St.).
The silhouette generally has a casual, flowing feel, achieved using plenty of linen, cotton, and suede, and cut so that a real woman can actually wear and look good in the clothes. Look for off-beat bags and other high-end accessories made in Seattle, where the company originated.
Jarbo has 10 other stores — the closest in Newton Highlands — mostly on the west coast.
