In the fall of 2012, Holt Renfrew set off a $300-million expansion plan to revamp every Canadian location. Earlier this month, we finally got to see the project in fruition at Yorkdale (3401 Dufferin St). The store is now a whopping 120,000 square feet (twice its original size) complete with a 10,000 square foot women's shoe section, an area for pop-up shops, a luxury private shopping lounge, and a space on the ground floor dedicated to contemporary brands like Acne and Phillip Lim. Plus, shoppers can get pampered at the men's on-site barbershop with a hot shave or at the women's "primp and polish" beauty bar with a blowout, manicure, and facial wax.

This Week in Fashion: New menswear boutiques in Yorkville, Dutil Fade February Contest, Art of Fashion
Suitsupply - a menswear brand founded in Amsterdam - is opening its first Canadian location in Yorkville (9-11 Hazelton Avenue) tomorrow (February 20). Expect to find the label's dapper made-in-Italy suits and signature bold colours in the 4,800 square foot space. If it were up to me, I'd upgrade your outerwear with a double-breasted coat or jazz your feet up with calf leather Chelsea boots.
