Valentino’s first Canadian boutique is the the latest addition to Yorkdale‘s fleet of luxury shops. The glossy new store opened in style with a private dinner whose guest list included Drake’s image director Mellany Sanchez and FASHION’s former cover star, actress Sarah Gadon.
Conceived by creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli and David Chipperfield Architects, the 4,600 square foot terrazzo covered store showcases the Valentino’s signature pieces like capes, feminine ruffles, square studs and a whole lot of black, ivory and Valentino red. With an assortment of men’s and women’s RTW and accessories there’s enough eye candy in to make our mouths water.
Fluffy carpet, white oak and velvet make the space one we would like to move into, or at least snag the contents for our dream closet. We skimmed the shoe department for the season’s best styles. From feathers to kitten heels we’ve made an edited wish list Marie Kondo would approve of.
