Since its birth as a small pop-up shop in 2010, Zane has been peddling coveted accessories from cool new designers out of its Queen West flagship. (Known for its selection of mid-range handbags, it was one of the first places in Toronto to stock Rebecca Minkoff‘s collection back in 2011.) Now, the boutique has opened a second location on Cumberland Street, bringing its collection of designer bags, hats and jewellery to Yorkville. Residents of the posh ‘hood can stock up on chic totes from Sophie Hulme, patterned clutches from Clare Vivier and large boho bags from Hoi Bo. Other accessories, including sunglasses from Karen Walker and watches from Daniel Wellington, are well-stocked, and delicate jewellery from brands like Grace Lee Designs rounds out the selection. Prices for most items clock in at a few hundred dollars and up, but the shop’s range of on-trend designers gives some cool-kid cred to Cumberland—and another alternative to Holt Renfrew‘s first floor.
