Malls are the Place for Luxury Brands?

A recent post from CCP Luxury noted that luxury brands are more likely to launch in malls than on “high streets” here in Canada.  But it wasn’t always this way.  Usually, people expect that such stores go to, say, Bloor Street in Toronto or Robson Street in Vancouver.  However, over the past few years, many […]

Nordstrom’s Canadian Arrival is in 2014…

…but will land in Calgary first.  The first Toronto store, at least according to Thursday’s announcement, won’t open until 2016.  The Toronto location will open at Sherway Gardens.  I’m a little disappointed to hear that the wait is going to be this long.  I was hoping that all of the stores would open by late […]

Thoughs on Nordstrom Possibly Coming to Toronto

While the rumour about Nordstrom opening in Ottawa, Vancouver and Calgary have been around for months, the Sherway rumour is newer – and a pleasant surprise, as Torontonians were wondering why their city was not on the list.  The mall itself, however, is a surprise, as these days, everything seems to be opening at Yorkdale.  […]

Premium Outlets Opening in Halton Hills, Ontario in 2013

The floor plan that was originally posted in this article was not supposed to be public and has since been removed.  However, the Ann Taylor/Kate Spade speculation is still on my books, especially after Kate Spade sponsored a TIFF […]

J.Crew has Opened at Yorkdale Shopping Centre!

The sophisticated prep doesn’t need to shop online anymore!  Toronto welcomed the first Canadian J.Crew store at Yorkdale Shopping Centre yesterday.  Though this location sells women’s clothing only, it offers a good selection, including a wide range of sizes.  For those of us who’re tiny, select pieces are available in 00 and most t-shirts are […]

Kate Middleton and ‘Mall Brands’

So even though Kate Middleton wore Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen at her wedding (let’s hope this means sleeves are coming back – you know how hard it was for me to find a dress that covered my shoulders?), the newly minted Duchess of Cambridge has been seen wearing not couture, but clothes from stores […]
