Toronto’s retail pop-up scene is gaining momentum, with new shopping opportunities emerging (and then disappearing) all the time. We’re keeping a lookout for the temporary shops you don’t want to miss.
Holt Renfrew’s Yorkdale location is currently hosting a pop-up shop for the chic Parisian label Maison Kitsuné. The temporary boutique is selling a selection of the brand’s traditional pieces, like crisp polos and classic white tennis shoes, alongside edgier graphic tees and black baseball caps with “Parisien” embroidered across the front. (Everything is priced between $90 and $290.) Kitsuné is also an indie record label (it’s signed bands like Two Door Cinema Club), so shoppers will find cool red-white-and-blue headphones and even a Kitsuné mixtape. The shop was supposed to close at the end of this week, but its stay at Holt Renfrew was recently extended until August. After that, you’ll have to travel to Paris, Tokyo or New York to get your hands on the label’s effortlessly stylish stuff.
Until August 8. Holt Renfrew Yorkdale, 2401 Dufferin St., kitsune.fr
