Hugo Boss AG will show off the latest vision for its global retail network with the opening of its first Canadian Boss flagship in Toronto this month.
The three-story, 12,000-square-foot unit at 83 Bloor Street West will be the first freestanding Boss store in Canada. The unit is also the first to reflect a new retail concept, which was developed by the Metzingen, Germany-based company’s in-house architecture team, and will roll out to all new Boss stores.
“The store…marks a milestone in the development of the Boss brand in the Canadian market,” said Philipp Wolff, senior vice president of communications for Hugo Boss AG, noting that the brand has had a wholesale presence in Canada since 1979.
Located on an upscale stretch of Bloor Street across from Harry Rosen, the store’s minimal facade of textured concrete evokes fabric. Inside, it’s all modernism and luxury: stone floors, contrasting wall colors, high gloss finishes and stained oak.
Slated to open Nov. 26, the unit will sell Boss Black men’s wear, Boss Black women’s wear, Boss Black accessories for men and women, as well as Boss Selection men’s wear.
Peter Kim's Los Angeles-based premium denim line has always had its finger on the pulse of youth. This season, novelty is back in a way reminiscent of early Aughts, with studs, lace-ups, racing waxed denim and more.

"I was driving back on Saturday afternoon from the beach, and I just saw this sign saying 'Skydiving for $95.' And I was like, I can't not sky dive for $95," says Tom Bateman about a moment in Hawaii while shooting "Snatched." #wwdeye (📷: @vsteves; Interview by @ktauer; Styled by @thealexbadia)
