Including three retail openings across Canada.
The Marni Ssense Exclusive is wild and whimsical
Marni has just dropped an Ssense exclusive titled ‘Once Upon a Time at Marni,’ and it might just be the cure for the winter blues. Filled with whimsy, boasting personality and offering a hefty dose of dopamine, the 35-piece unisex capsule is made up of bright hues, luxe faux furs and funky patchwork prints.
Louis Vuitton arrives at the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver
Louis Vuitton has opened a new shopping hub that doubles as a ritzy travel destination. Set within the landmark Fairmont Hotel Vancouver, the store offers men’s and women’s ready-to-wear, shoes, accessories and timepieces, plus access to bespoke luxury through the personalization of leather goods and the engraving of fragrance vessels.
But the oohs and aahs don’t end there. Architecturally, the store is a masterpiece of carpentry and features a grand circular staircase linking the first and second floors. You’ll also find fine art curated from around the globe at every turn. *Checks flights to Vancouver.*
Mejuri launches member-exclusive lab-grown diamonds
Hot off the heels of its lab-grown sapphire launch, Mejuri is introducing lab-grown diamonds to its roster of wearable jewels. Available exclusively for Mejuri+ members, the collection is launching with a necklace, bracelet and studs, each offered in yellow or white gold with two different carat options.
Arc’teryx reopens its Yorkdale store
As the wise say, when one door closes another one opens. Such is true of outdoorsy brand Arc’teryx, whose new store in Toronto’s Yorkdale Shopping Centre is a grand step up from its original mall location. The space scales an impressive 2,043 square feet of retail space and brings the outside indoors with a digital display mimicking large-scale mountains — a nod to the brand’s Canadian roots.
The new shop features a wide assortment of high-performance products pertaining to running, climbing, hiking, snow sports (all tested in the harshest of environments, as Arc-teryx does), as well as lifestyle clothing, shoes and accessories.
Gucci opens a new Calgary location
Gucci is expanding its retail footprint in Canada with a new Calgary boutique. Another mammoth (this one sized at 2,700 square feet), the shop carries an expansive selection of men’s and women’s ready-to-wear, small leather goods and handbags, accessories, shoes, jewellery and travel items.
Located on 8th Avenue inside Holt Renfrew, this is the only Gucci store in all of Calgary. Be sure to check out if you ever find yourself in Alberta’s up-and-coming fashion mecca.
