French luxury fashion brand Saint Laurent has opened its first Canadian location in downtown Vancouver. At 746 Thurlow Street, the store is located in the city’s burgeoning ‘Luxury Zone’, and spans over two levels.
The boutique is situated between Moncler and Prada, in The Carlyle retail complex. CBRE has been involved with leasing spaces in the Carlyle, which also includes upscale tenants De Beers and Tory Burch. Hoarding for the new Saint Laurent store went up over the weekend.
The city’s Saint Laurent store features the brand’s women’s and men’s ready-to-wear collections, as well as accessories and footwear. Women’s fashions will be on the main floor, menswear will be located on the second level, and a basement space will be dedicated to offices and storage.
Saint Laurent women’s ready-to-wear and accessory boutiques opened within Vancouver’s flagship Nordstrom in September of 2015, and a limited selection of men’s Saint Laurent fashions are carried at Leone and Holt Renfrew in downtown Vancouver.
Vancouver’s 5,000 square-foot Saint Laurent store will be one of the biggest in North America. Only its New York City and Beverly Hills units are larger.
