Referred to as the “King of Cashmere”, Italian luxury fashion brand Brunello Cucinelli has opened its first Canadian location in Vancouver. It joins a number of other premium brands in Vancouver’s ‘Luxury Zone’. Sources say that Cucinelli also continues to seek retail space in Toronto’s Yorkville area, ideally on or close to Bloor Street West.

The 2,700 square foot Vancouver boutique opened last week at the retail base of the 745 Thurlow Street office building at the southwest corner of Thurlow and Alberni Streets. Cucinelli has a municipal address of 765 Thurlow Street, and it will soon be joined by Versace and Swiss menswear brand Strellson in the same complex.
