Chanel has opened its second-largest Canadian store, its fifth store location in Canada, at Holt Renfrew’s expanded store at Yorkdale Shopping Centre in Toronto. The store is about 3,000 square feet, according to Holt Renfrew.
According to Holt Renfrew: “A chic new CHANEL boutique opened at Holt Renfrew Yorkdale Shopping Centre on Thursday November 28. Designed by famed architect and long-time Chanel collaborator Peter Marino, the sparkling new 3000 square foot boutique was inspired by Mademoiselle Chanel’s apartment on rue Cambon in Paris.
The salon houses Chanel’s coveted ready-to-wear fashion, plus handbags, footwear, accessories, watches and both costume and fine jewellery. We couldn’t resist slipping into the luxurious fitting rooms, featuring custom artwork by Peter Dayton, to try on a few pieces from the standout 2013/14 Cruise collection, first shown at Loewen Cluster in Singapore. #HoltsYorkdale”
Chanel’s five Canadian stores include a 7,900 square foot free-standing flagship at 131 Bloor St. W, in Toronto, as well as boutiques within Holt Renfrew stores in Vancouver (1,880 sq ft), Calgary (~1,600 sq ft), Montreal (~1,700 sq ft) and Toronto (50 Bloor St. W. – 1,815 sq ft).
We’re expecting to make at least one major announcement on a Canadian Chanel store in the next couple of months. Stay tuned for updates.
