Founded in Vancouver, this well-known Canadian brand has made a name for itself at home and in the U.S. Aritzia is known for its cozy knits, gorgeous silks and luxurious accessories. They do have a mid-to-high price point, so invest in more classic pieces (think sweaters, pants, blazers). My favourite purchase from here has been an Aritzia x Mackage leather jacket that just gets softer with age.
This innovative downtown women’s fashion boutique carries on-trend and high quality jeans from exclusive brand names. They also offer a complimentary personal denim appointment for advice on fits and fades. The Robson Street Aritzia store, while sophisticated and welcoming, also has a casual lounge-like atmosphere for a relaxing shopping experience.
