Hit Me Kenzo One More Time
Guess who is the new face of Kenzo’s La Collection Momento for Spring 2018? None other than the queen of pop, Britney Spears. The new line is inspired by nostalgia and revisits looks from the 80s, Kenzo’s old label and even Britney’s iconic head-to-toe denim getup she so confidently sported at the 2001 American Music Awards. The cover shot for the campaign, photographed by Peter Lindbergh, features Britney in a cropped denim jacket, denim underwear, and denim lace-up thigh high boots. Kenzo creative director Humberto Leon refers to Britney as “the queen of denim” and said in a statement, “When we were designing the collection, I was like, ‘If I can have a dream person, who would I want to be in denim? It has to be Britney’”. The 36-year-old mom of two proves she’s still got it in this new campaign, showing off her envy-worthy body in colourful outfits that will be available online and at select retailers on March 21st.


Plenty Warehouse Sale Begins Next Week
Are you ready to get your down and dirty shopping face on, Vancouver? Plenty is hosting another long-anticipated warehouse sale next Friday, March 30th to Monday, April 2nd at the Vancouver Convention Centre. If you’ve ever hit these sales before, you know how wild it can get! Expect large lineups, overwhelming amounts of product and witnessing catfights over that last cozy cardigan.

Shopper’s hint: it’s best to arrive early to ensure you get the first pick of the sizes as new stock will be arriving daily.


First Canadian Nordstrom Rack Opens
Off-price retail shoppers rejoice! Toronto has become home to the very first Nordstrom Rack location in Canada. Nordstrom entered Canada with a slew of full-line stores starting in September 2014 and has since expanded to six full-line stores in the country. The company is expected to continue its Canadian takeover with another 15 Rack stores. Six locations have recently been announced. Following their first opening, we can expect to see Rack stores popping up in Calgary, Toronto’s Bloor Street, Ottawa, Edmonton and Mississauga. Nordstrom Rack’s first Canadian location opened its doors at Vaughan Mills on Thursday morning and carried many of Nordstrom’s recognized brands at between 30-70% off.


Saint Laurent Unveils Toronto Boutique
Holt Renfrew on Bloor Street West’s “Mink Mile” has gotten a luxury boost with their recent opening of the Saint Laurent leased boutique. The opulent marble and metal decorated space is home to Saint Laurent’s menswear, women’s ready-to-wear, footwear and accessories collections. The street-level entrance has the sought after handbags facing out the front window and the boutique is accessible both from outside and from inside of Holt Renfrew. This is the newest development as Holt Renfrew continues to renovate and update in both Toronto and Vancouver.
