Aritzia on Bloor
Aritzia on Bloor is the flagship location of this popular Vancouver-based women's fashion store.
Since its renovation, this Yorkville location has opened up into a sprawling 11,000-square-foot store carrying all of Aritzia's essential clothing lines, which you can try in a stunning fitting room.
On top of that, the flagship is the first location to have its own in-house coffee shop: A-OK Cafe.
Gone is the HMV that once sat on the second-floor walkway of the building: the only thing left of the former set up is an escalator leading down into the Holt Renfrew Centre.
That, and single tile from the old storefront—now a piece of decor among the other knick knacks lining the place.
Previously you could only shop clothing from Babaton and Wilfred, arguably Aritizia's most famous in-house brands, but here, you'll find the whole gamut.
Wilfred and Wilfred Free still play a big part in the store, running through the right side of the store with a summery new collection called La Boheme with looks like an airy cotton ankle-length dress ($148).
The more structured Babaton line is on the left side, with pant suits and trimmed-hem looks.
There's also The Group, a Babaton subset, with more approachable looks like cotton and cashmere sweaters ($88).
New additions include Denim Forum, a new line of jeans with different cuts and washes like The Yoko ($128), a popular high-rise slim fit pant. You'll also find denim from brands like Levi and Agolde.
1-01 is a limited edition Babton capsule using more uspcale looks like the Theodora frock ($248).
Sunday Best can be found near the back of the store on the left side, offering music festival-friendly looks, i.e. cropped tees and floral skirts.
Past that is the TNA section, where you can find an array of cozy sweat suits and neon athleisure wear.
Try all your finds in the fitting room (just past the giant David Hockney book), equipped with ridiculously lush velvet seating and floor to ceiling curtains.
It feels more like luxurious living room than a changeroom, especially with the collection of artifacts and books on the shelves.
Seeing as the Mink Mile is known for luxury, it makes sense that Aritizia's revamped flagship is the kind of place where you reward yourself with a croissants and coffee pre- or post-shopping spree.
