Jaeger-LeCoultre opens boutiques in Vancouver and Toronto
While all the talking heads are busy describing the gloomy landscape of the Canadian economy, Jaeger-LeCoultre took a more bullish stance by opening, not one, but two monobrand boutiques in the Great White North: one in Vancouver and the other one in Toronto.
The Vancouver boutique, in the hearth of the glitzy Alberni Street will offer 82 square meters (more than 880 square feet) area devoted to the Manufacture’s timepieces, displayed in a revamped interior design, in an atmosphere of discreet luxury, serene intimacy and modern refinement.
Infinitely more than just a boutique, the new Jaeger-LeCoultre Boutique in Toronto located in Canada’s premier shopping destination, Yorkdale, will also highlight the horological icons and latest collections of the Brand, such as the Reverso, the Rendez-Vous, the Master, the Geophysic, the Duomètre, and the Deep Sea lines in a 60-square-meter area.
Both Vancouver and Toronto boutiques will turn the spotlight on the creativity and inventive spirit of the Manufacture, two themes that have been part of the Brand since 1833. A true place of hospitality, of encounters and of discoveries thanks to its lounge intended for collectors, Brand devotees and for all connoisseurs who want to experience a true authentic horological experience, with refinement and quietness.
With these two new boutiques, Jaeger-LeCoultre has 11 monobrand boutiques in North America: Beverly Hills, Boca Raton, Encore at the Wynn Las Vegas, Costa Mesa, Palm Beach, Aventura, New York, Miami Design District, The Forum Shops Las Vegas, Vancouver and Toronto.
Jaeger-LeCoultre North America President Philippe Bonay says:
Jaeger-LeCoultre has experienced rapid growth in the United States over the last few years, this is now the right time for us to bring the Manufacture to Canada by opening our first two Boutiques and complete our network of distribution. Vancouver represents a real opportunity for the Brand to radiate on the Pacific Rim and being exposed to a cosmopolitan clientele that aspires to discover and own beautiful objects. This international and cultural diversity is very prominent in Toronto as well and we believe in the growth potential for the luxury industry and for our business in particular”
