Holt Renfrew 100 Bloor Mens Store
Holt Renfrew’s debut stand-alone men’s concept, this 16,000-square-foot, space on Toronto’s fashionable Bloor Street represents a departure for the Canadian luxury retailer, its masculine design resembling a private club as much as a store. On the main level, internally lit shelving in gray-stained white oak and blackened stainless steel surrounds central columns. A custom mosaic-tile floor connects leather goods, jewelry and men’s furnishings, while a hand-knotted custom carpet and deep-blue leather-upholstered polished stainless-steel chairs define the footwear area. On the fashion-focused second level — which includes a personal-shopping suite and bespoke-tailoring shop —walnut shutters and herringbone flooring create a residential feel, and a patterned-wool runner marks a circulation path. A double-height structural screen extends through the escalator atrium, creating a strong visual connection between the two floors and providing additional visual merchandising space.
