Making the move from the United Sates to this side of the border, designer Tory Burch has launched a stand alone boutique in Yorkdale Mall. No longer confined to small shops inside department stores, the new luxury space offers plenty of leg room for customers to shop. We were invited to check out the new store before it opened to the public on May 4th and we were impressed with the high end details put into the décor. The first Canadian store offers a total luxury shopping expierence, with special seating nooks fitted with iPads where customers can relax and browse the designer’s collection.
The store was separated into three separate and unique spaces. We spoke with one of the sales associates who told us the store was actually modeled after rooms in Tory Burch’s own house. The open and inviting accessory room has bright lacquered doors with moss green flooring and a hard wood ceiling. The ready-to-wear room matches the beauty of the clothes with walls that are upholstered in navy snow leopard and fresh flowers on the tables. The back shoe room has seafoam silk taffeta drapes, comfy teal velvet sofas and green lacquer tables.
The new store, which is located in the same row as the Burberry and J.Crew stores, will carry the entire Tory Burch collection including ready-to-wear, shoes, handbags, eyewear, jewelry and small leather goods.
