Luxury labels Versace and Jimmy Choo to launch first stand-alone shops in Canada

TORONTO - Two renowned luxury brands are entering the increasingly crowded retail market with the launch of their first stand-alone boutiques in Canada.

Italian fashion house Versace and famed footwear and accessories label Jimmy Choo are slated to open at Yorkdale Shopping Centre in Toronto.

Nine West co-founder Vince Camuto will also open his first eponymous stand-alone shop in Canada at Yorkdale.

The three locations will open later this year.

Several high-profile retailers and brands have opened bricks-and-mortar locations in Canada over the past several years. Discount retailer Target is continuing its northern expansion, with Microsoft, Ann Taylor, Loft and J. Crew among the other companies that have also opened for business north of the border.

High-end U.S. retailer Nordstrom will be following suit this fall with the opening of its first store in Calgary.
