Balenciaga is proving its growing popularity with a new freestanding
store in Canada. The luxury label has opened its new flagship store at
Toronto’s Yorkdale Shopping Centre, according to Fashion Network.
The new 3,326-square-foot space officially opened its doors to customers
on Nov. 19. The overall environment of the store has an industrial feel,
maintaining the brand’s ethos and global aesthetic. This location will be
home to both men’s and women’s ready-to-wear collections, as well as shoes
and accessories that will be displayed on aluminum shelves.
Location-specific elements—such as seating inspired by Toronto’s public
transportation—sprinkle the store to give it a more localized touch. The
collections available will also be store-specific.
Balenciaga is one of many luxury brands that have opened a flagship in
Canada in Yorkdale. It joins other labels including Bottega Veneta, Van
Cleef & Arpels, and Valentino—who opened its first location in Canada
earlier this year.
