The Italian luxury brand has opened its third standalone Canadian location at the West Edmonton Mall in Edmonton.
Occupying an area of 5,040sq ft on one level, the store carries a standard selection of Gucci bags, footwear, accessories, jewellery, silks, watches, fragrances and eyewear. Given the huge space that the store occupies, a number of sections have been created including a special footwear boutique for men’s and women’s shoes.
The store’s interior is similar to other Gucci stores in Canada. Velvet armchairs make up the space and contrast against hard surfaces and industrial elements such as rivets. Artisan painted floors were handcrafted in Italy and are finished with optical patterns integrated with herringbone wood flooring. Other design elements included in the store are sage green velvet upholstery and vintage oriental rugs.
The newly-opened West Edmonton mall store was designed by Toronto-based dkstudio Architects Inc.
