J. Crew Launches First Store in Toronto, Canada

Earlier this week, Toronto's fashion and media elite made their way to the launch of the first ever Canadian J. Crew retail location in Yorkdale mall. I'm a huge fan of J. Crew and I was excited and eager to see what the American retailer had in-store for its Canadian female shoppers.

The sales floor was cleverly merchandised with a range of products from beautifully tailored suits, colourful dresses, cozy jackets, sexy boots, chic wedges, stylish hats, a range of luxe bags, belts, beauty accessories and so, so, so... much more. The primary colour scheme for the fall collection consisted primarily of neutral tones with a variety of brilliant reds and smoldering oranges.

My favourite items were definitely the leopard print pumps (see above) and the luxurious leather bags - GORGE! The great thing about these pieces, and J. Crew collections in general, is the versatility of the pieces which can easily be dressed up or down for simple, but sophisticated day or evening looks. The only drawback about this new location is that it only carries womenswear, but I did overhear that a menswear location is definitely in the works and coming to Toronto soon - YAY!!!
