If Boho-chic is your style, then Johnny Was is your store. The brand launched in 1987 and was named from a line in a Bob Marley song, “Johnny was a good man”.  The idea was to share luxurious vintage and bohemian clothing that was universal and timeless. Many of the pieces feature effortless silhouettes and exquisite fabrics. Johnny was is definitely for the lady that loves both comfort and style.
