Ted Baker London Opens First Western Canada Location In Vancouver
As part of an ongoing expansion plan in Canada, irreverent British lifestyle brand, Ted Baker London, will launch its first Western Canada location at Pacific Centre in Vancouver, British Columbia, this coming June, 2015.
Inspired by Ted’s trip to the great Canadian outdoors, the 2,860 square foot store will pay tribute to the authentic culture and rustic heritage of Western Canada by drawing its design influence from an imagined 19th century luxury log cabin of a British explorer. Distressed antique oak, mirrors, stone and upholstered leather panels sit in framed brushed brass grids in traditional First Nation patterns, integrating the whimsical nature of the quintessentially British brand with Vancouver’s northern roots. A series of unconventional props will tell the story of an English gent’s discovery of and unconventional approach to surviving the Great White North: by re-imagining his treasured silver service teapots as plant pots, carving knives as saws, tennis rackets as fishing nets and telephones as hammers.
The store will launch with Ted’s Spring Summer and High Summer ’15 womenswear, menswear and accessories collections. Ted’s fanciful womenswear collection captures imagination with colour – combining classical romantic impressions, blooming prints and urban chic nuances. The menswear collection’s smart–yet–stylish look is a fantasy of relaxed layers, casual knitwear and smart, formal pieces; a paradise of striking colour blocks and bold hues.
Across opening weekend, shoppers will enjoy special gifts with purchase along with giveaways and complimentary treats tying back to the store’s unique design concept.
