With the recent reopening of the Chanel flagship store in Yorkville, Toronto, Hermes just proved it doesn't fall behind in luxury interior design.
Now situated at 100 Bloor West, the celebrated French brand's new T-dot store consists a total of about 12,000 square feet (both first and second floor) with 5,800 reserved for retail space. The previous location had a minuscule size of around 4,000 square feet.
The interior screams total modern Parisian vibe, designed by the French architecture firm RDAI. The first floor which showcases scarves, jewellery, fragrances, and menswear, has a distinct marble and wood oval staircase with leather handrails. The second floor houses women' ready-to-wear and a Hermes home department, which is the country's first. It also contains a private shopping area.
The simplistic yet pleasant exterior is made of beige-rose bricks and combined with large floor-to-ceiling windows.
