I had the opportunity to attend the opening day of Topshop & Topman in the Bay yesterday. What an event! It’s so exciting to experience such a buzz in our city.
Although there were throngs of people the staff managed to provide amazing service. Kenneth was definitely on his game – he gave us a bit of a tour and lots of information that made me want to spend!
Seeing all the gorgeous merchandising, fabulous displays and amazing store design made wish I had enough hours in my day to still have that as part of my work day.
There was a definite influence of UK street style. A look I am sure Vancouver will embrace. There was a variety of Navy & Grey and menswear influenced fabrics in woman’s wear. We are really seeing this in home décor too. I couldn’t help but be inspired but some of the pieces and you probably will be seeing some similarities at Flüff.
One of the Fluffians, Miranda, writes a fashion & retail blog called Style by Fire (when she isn’t working for Flüff fulltime or going to school part time). She was invited to the media preview the day before the opening. Check it out to see her perception of the event.
