Toronto’s neighbourhood of Rosedale is one of the chicest areas in the city. From hip restaurants and upscale fitness studios, to beauty boutiques and designer-filled shops, Rosedale is a destination full of underrated places to spend your time.
Rich in history, beautiful buildings line the street of Yonge. And in one of the most beautiful heritage buildings that grace the stretch is the newly relocated CLEMENTINE’S.
The shop’s beginnings trace back to Christina, who previously worked with Holt Renfrew as an image consultant and national spokesperson. Five years ago, both Christina and Kelly, who was working in marketing at the time, decided to leave their jobs to embark on a new adventure. And CLEMENTINE’S was born.
Today the boutique, which previously offered luxury resale, focuses on contemporary collections, niche luxury labels, female-driven brands, and design-forward home accessories and apothecary from around the world.
With a keen eye and attention to detail, CLEMENTINE’S offerings are cohesive and edited to perfection.
But what makes CLEMENTINE’S so special is Christina and Kelly’s relationships with their designers and customers.
In their five years of business, the two have grown a loyal following of fans through personalized shopping experiences and sincere interactions.
Many of the pieces that you’ll find in-store are made in limited runs.
Collaborating with revered Canadian designers like UNTTLD and Narces, CLEMENTINE’S is able to offer truly unique pieces.
The store also has its own private label, which focuses on beautiful styles dreamt up by Christina and Kelly themselves.
Take, for instance, the beautiful line of CLEMENTINE’S x MEROTTO jackets, made in Toronto with suede sourced from Germany and dyed in Italy.
While you’ll find luxury designer pieces upwards of $2000 and hand-hammered pot pourri lava rocks for $225, Christina and Kelly also hand select more accessible contemporary labels like IRO, Vince, and Velvet by Graham and Spencer.
The store is ever-changing, with a constant stream of new pieces and styles flowing into the store.
Whether you’re looking for a personalized shopping experience or just strolling the neighbourhood, CLEMENTINE’S is worth a visit.
