inspired by retail design...

Sometimes I think I have a problem.

Do you ever go shopping and spend more time looking at the store display's and fixtures than the products?

One of my favourite spots to shop is Aritzia.

For those of you south of the border, you may not shop there - yet.
But I bet you will!!

Aritzia is a Canadian-based clothing store
 that mainly stocks in-house labels like A Moveable Feast, TNA and Wilfred.
 But they also cater to the high end-denim market, 
and extras include hipster essentials like Sorels, Toms shoes, 
TNA iPhone covers, Dylan's Candy Bar buckets, etc..

Whatever is of the moment.

Their aesthetic is clean and organic, yet urban.

Packaging and labels are based around specific artists each month,
and DJ's create their playlists (sometimes playing in-store),
which are available for listening on the blog.
Quite often one of these is going in the 10 Rooms "headquarters", lol.

It's polished, luxury, street style.

Their new Wilfred store in TO is no exception.

I was there recently, but my pics aren't quite a snazzy as the ones provided on the blog..

I'll take some of those windows, and the pendant, thank you.
Thinking it's a painted Restoration Hardware Polyhedron, right?

Warm white walls, filled with gorgeous mouldings,
 the raw wood floors, and graphic black metal make for a perfect backdrop.

Here it allows the product to be the star, 
but in a home this would frame out a furniture and art collection to perfection.

Loving the peacock tufted leather, overdyed orientals, art display, and panelled dressing rooms.

The cash counter, with it's inlaid marble top, before the madness.. and after!

If you know who the talent behind this is, please share.

And please, puh-lease, tell me you are out shopping and takings pics of store fixtures as well!!
