Paris-based luxury jeweller Van Cleef & Arpels will open its first freestanding Toronto store this spring at Toronto’s Yorkdale Shopping Centre, according to new construction hoarding signage. The Toronto boutique will join a downtown Vancouver unit opening later this year, which is also currently under construction.
Toronto’s Van Cleef & Arpels will measure about 1,560 square feet on one level, replacing two smaller retailers — Swarovski on the corner, as well as an adjacent Crabtree & Evelyn store. Van Cleef & Arpels is the fifth Richemont Group-owned luxury brand confirmed to be opening at Yorkdale in 2017 in the mall’s expanding ‘luxury wing’. Across the hall, in retail space formerly occupied by Williams Sonoma, four Richemont brands will open boutiques including Piaget, IWC Schaffhausen, Officine Panerai, and Vacheron Constantine.
