Toronto-based women’s footwear and apparel brand TKEES has partnered with Holt Renfrew to open apparel pop-up stores and areas at Holts locations across the country. As of this month Holt Renfrew is the only store in the world to feature the brand’s cotton terry apparel collection in stores and online. 

The TKEES brand was founded in 2009 by husband-wife team Jesse and Carly Burnett — Carly was seeking a sandal that would “disappear” on one’s foot and developed a line of sandals in a range of nude colours. The brand has since expanded to more colours (including white and black) with prices from $68 to $100 on Holt Renfrew’s website. 

The privately-held company with a head office in Yorkville recently expanded into apparel with a range of hoodies and joggers for women. The line is made from a plush cotton terry cloth that will be attractive to those working from home in the fall.  Hoodies on Holt Renfrew’s website are priced at $175 and joggers are priced at $160 a pair. Colours include black, mocha, latte and nutmeg. 

The collections are available at all Holt Renfrew stores in Canada (excluding the standalone Toronto men’s store) in Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto (50 Bloor St. W. and Yorkdale), Mississauga and Montreal (Holt Renfrew Ogilvy).
