American footwear retailer Vince Camuto will open store locations across Canada. The company has teamed up with a real estate firm to spearhead its Canadian expansion, focussing on major enclosed shopping malls. Construction has already begun on its first boutique at Toronto’s Yorkdale Shopping Centre, scheduled to open this summer.

Vince Camuto is a fashion designer who co-founded popular women’s shoe retailer, Nine West. In 2005, he launched his namesake footwear line. The brand has since expanded into accessories as well as women’s and men’s clothing.

In the fall of 2013, Vince Camuto teamed up with real estate firm Oberfeld Snowcap in its search for Canadian real estate. According to Oberfeld, the Vince Camuto collection fills a void in the Canadian market, positioned between lower-priced ‘fast-fashion’ labels and more expensive designer and contemporary brands.

Vince Camuto’s Yorkdale store will replace another retailer, Icon Shoes. According to Yorkdale’s lease plan, Icon Shoes occupies about 1,365 square feet. The shop will be designed and executed by Toronto-based dkstudio inc., which has created some of Canada’s most prestigious stores including Prada at Yorkdale’s Holt RenfrewDe Beers in Vancouver, and several Louis Vuitton locations.

A Vince Camuto outlet store is also located at the Toronto Premium Outlets, its only retail outlet location in Canada.
