Upscale Montreal-based fashion brand Mackage has opened its first freestanding Canadian location at CF Carrefour Laval in suburban Montreal. The 2,133 square foot store features Burdefilek-designed interiors “reminiscent of a ski chalet with wood beamed ceilings and wood floors. The mix of materials used for fixtures includes bronzed black metal, cerused oak paneling and black honed marble,” according to Mackage co-founder Elisa Dahan.  

Next week we’ll be interviewing Mackage’s co-founders to gain insight into plans to open more freestanding Canadian locations. Below are photos of the Laval store, provided by Mackage. 

Founded in Montreal in 1999 by Eran Elfassy and Elisa Dahan, Mackage is known for its detailed, tailored outerwear in leather, down and wool for men and women. It also boasts a successful accessories business, including a line of handbags featuring a signature arrow embellishment.

The company is part of fashion conglomerate APP Group, which also includes upscale clothing brand SOIA & KYO. The company’s only other freestanding store is in New York City’s Soho area.

In Canada, Mackage sells its products in a number of retailers including Holt Renfrew, Harry Rosen, Aritzia, La Maison Simons and Mendocino, among others. It is also available in the United States at upscale retailers including Bloomingdale’s, Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus.
