The opening of Van Cleef & Arpels‘ flagship on Toronto’s prestigious Bloor Street in September 2023 is a significant event for the renowned French Maison. This 2,500-square-foot boutique marks a major milestone in the brand’s relationship with Canada, being the first flagship store in the country. With design inspiration coming from a Parisian apartment, the boutique features a private salon, a unique special events room, and a selection of collections on display, including High Jewellery and watches. The design elements include hand-crafted, French-made glass chandeliers, intricately paneled walls, and an Art Deco-inspired black and golden facade. Initially designed for a 1937 Van Cleef & Arpels Minaudière, the facade’s geometric and pyramidal pattern draws inspiration from Egyptian history reminiscent of Claire-voie. “We look forward to further showcasing our iconic creations and rich heritage with Toronto’s sophisticated clientele,” says Helen King, President & CEO of Van Cleef & Arpels, Americas.
The boutique is now open at 100 Bloor Street West, Toronto, Ontario.
