TNT Hazelton Lanes

Posted by Robyn Urback / Posted on April 14, 2011

TNT Hazelton LanesTNT Hazelton Lanes demands you bring comfortable walking shoes (or your Isabel Marant boots...whatever) since the brand new store is 18,000 square feet. Another necessary bring-along is your wallet, preferably well-stocked, since it has all of the TNT favourite brands, including Alexander Wang, Comme des Garçons, Haute Hippie, Pink Tartan, FreeCity, and more.

TNT Hazelton LanesJust opened a week, I walked in to find it all geared up for spring. Though the store is mostly glass, white, and sleekly modern, a section to the left of the mall entrance has been beached-bummed out with wood paneling, lots of Levi's ($89.95), Citizens of Humanity jeans ($225), and Splendid racerback tanks ($55).

But beyond that section, all the items in the store are generously spaced, arranged somewhat by colour, somewhat by style, and occasionally by brand (yes, there's a whole section and wall of FreeCity).

TNT Hazelton LanesUp the illuminated, industrial stairs is where I found more of the dressier and unusual pieces, including a $3000 Jitrois leather dress and $995 Yrusha draped muslin piece. Across the hall is where you'll find the men's clothing, shoes, and accessories, spanning 4,000 square feet.

TNT Hazelton LanesTNT, which stands for The New Trend, was started in 1992 by Arie Assaraf and Carrie Richmond. It started on Eglinton West near Avenue Road, where it now occupies over 5,500 square feet, which, oddly, seems small compared to the new digs. TNT also has a store in Montreal on rue ST-Catherine Ouest, and has announced it will open a buying office in New York City.

TNT Hazelton LanesBut back at Hazelton, I'm finally narrowing my list of if-I-marry-rich desired items. Occupying the top spot is is a Smythe equestrian jacket with leather elbow patches and vintage inspired buttons ($595), closely followed by a Deepa Gurnani fuschia and gold sequined clutch ($295). Still, there's such an unbelievable amount of merchandise in this store, something else will always invariably catch your eye.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but hasn't TNT had a Hazelton Lanes store for quite some time now?

It took me a while to realize this wasn't TnT Supermarket's new branding expansion.

Yes they've had a store in Hazelton Lanes for a long time, but this relaunch involves redesigning the store and expanding the store into adjacent vacant spaces in the shopping centre. So it looks very different now and is much bigger.

Nothing beats seeing those nubile teenage girls in those tight TNA pants.

This is the same company, ya?

No, TNA is different and is basically the same as Lulu Lemon. This store is high end designer

Well then this store opening just got decidedly less interesting for most people i'd reckon.

Looks like an outlet store. I prefer the previous store designs by Johnson Chou.

Agreed

From what I know, the new store is Johnson Chou's design. He is TNT's go-to guy for all their design needs.

I do it out of love and because I know you're a good sport. Thanks. I keep going back and forth on wtehher it wants to be a black & white. I'm sort of finding the light and colour in the background, specifically between the buildings, a bit distracting. Not sure, really.
