Holt’s: What’s in Store this Spring?

When Holt Renfrew opened the doors of its Dunsmuir Street location back in 2007, it started the tidal wave of luxury retail in Vancouver’s downtown core. Its glitzy interior and incredible collections drew in Vancouver’s most fashion forward.

Spring Campaign | Holt Renfrew

Almost 10 years on and Holt’s has maintained its core following and as the center figure of the luxury fashion market in Vancouver is looking to quite literally build on its success by expanding to a 190,000 square foot shopping destination that will feature coveted and luxury designer as well as Ready-to-Wear brands for men and women and an array of new posh experiences.

Whilst Holt Renfrew is not ready to divulge on all the details of their upcoming expansion, BLUSH was invited to catch a glimpse of what is in store.

Holt’s prides itself on its extensive array of luxury brands and the stand-alone shops they house, and with the renovation they are expanding on their current designers in conjunction the new Chanel flagship store currently under construction.

This will be the first of many luxury houses to open in Summer 2016, including relocated and expanded shops for Louis Vuitton, Tiffany, David Yurman, Gucci, Prada, Dior, and Tom Ford.  Also within the new expanded space, Holt Renfrew Men will open in Summer 2016 – a distinct menswear experience with over 15 new menswear brands to be added.

Last, but certainly not least, Holts is adding a café designed by Yabu Pushelberg. The 80 seat restaurant will be a fine dining experience, including bar and private dining room. Surely this will be Vancouver’s newest destination for a sophisticated and stylish lunch, dinner or post-shopping cocktails.
