Italian luxury brand Versace opened a flagship store in the shopping mall at Yorkville Avenue in Toronto, Canada.
It is the second Versace store in Toronto and the third in Canada. The retail space is two-level, approximately 280 square meters, between the newly opened flagship Brunello Cucinelli (the largest Cucinelli in North America) and the flagship Stone Island. Across the street are the stores of the French luxury brand Christian Louboutin and the Chinese luxury brand Sheng Tang Peony.
The peculiarity of the new Versace store is its bold and unusual design, which is characterized by a combination of light and mirrors, the use of different materials for areas with varying categories of product. The brass grid creates a special effect on the ceiling - its golden color dominates the space, contrasting with different metals and marble accents. Among the most noticeable features is a three-dimensional head of jellyfish on the ceiling of one of the dressing rooms on the first floor. The shop has been designed by the known designer of interiors Gwenael Nicolas (Gwenael Nicolas).
On the first floor, there are separate zones for men's and women's clothing, as well as different zones for accessories and shoes. The shoe salon, with its blue accents, resembles a jewelry box. The second level of the store includes Versace children's clothing, as well as Versace Home line.
The first Canadian boutique Versace, which covers an area of 260 square meters, was opened in the summer of 2014 in the shopping center Yorkdale in Toronto. The second Canadian store with 174 sqm opened in December 2015 in Vancouver, at the foot of the office tower on the outskirts of the city's luxurious Alberni Street zone.
