Montreal-based women’s fashion brand Judith & Charles has opened a location at Toronto’s Yorkville Village, in the shopping centre formerly known as Hazelton Lanes. The beautiful new store features a bright, modern design with marble flooring and stone and wood accents. Judith Richardson and Charles Le Pierrès, founders of Judith & Charles, worked closely with architect firm Architem to develop the concept.
Judith & Charles currently operates 13 free-standing brick-and-mortar locations in Canada and the United States. In Canada, the brand has two locations in Montreal, two in Calgary, four in Toronto, three in Vancouver, and one in Ottawa, and in the United States, one location in New York City. The brand also recently re-launched its website, featuring expanded e-commerce and enhanced usability.
Judith & Charles is represented in Canada by brokerage Aurora Realty Consultants.
Founded in 1975 in Paris, the brand was originally named Teenflo. In 1990, Judith Richardson and Charles Le Pierrès bought the brand, moving its headquarters to Montreal. In 2008, Teenflo was renamed ‘Judith & Charles’. Priced as a ‘contemporary’ brand, it is best known for its Italian yarns, exceptional fit and minimalistic styling, and locally-based craftsmanship.
