Holt Renfrew Ogilvy opens, and beauty is just the beginning
For almost 200 years, Holt Renfrew has been at the forefront of fashion and beauty in Canada. Both Holt Renfrew and Ogilvy have achieved iconic department store status in Montréal with each storied brand offering the very best the world of luxury has to offer. Now these 2 icons have come together, merging as one to take fashion and beauty in Montréal to the next level.
A gem in the Golden Square Mile
Holt Renfrew Ogilvy, the new downtown department store located in the Golden Square Mile, will feature over 250,000 square feet of space filled with the finest clothing, accessories, beauty products and more from coveted brands the world over. Located in the prestigious original Ogilvy location, the new store will also be connected to long-awaited Four Seasons Hotel Montréal, which is set to open this year.
In late March of 2019, Holt Renfrew Ogilvy unveiled its luminous, spacious Beauty department as well as its Menswear Hall. Its 25,000 square feet of space play host to an exciting assortment of beauty, fragrance and skincare in a sleek new environment on the store’s concourse level. The new 40,000 square foot Menswear destination is also suited up and ready to wow fashion-savvy shoppers. Both these new departments are the first phase of a renovation rollout planned for completion in 2020.
Objects of desire: luxury brands aplenty
The most sought-after beauty brands from around the world such as Sisley, Tom Ford, Christian Louboutin, Givenchy, Maison Christian Dior, CHANEL and so many more are featured in the new beauty department, while world-class fragrance shops such as Hermès, Diptyque, Guerlain, Chopard, Creed and many others offer an array of pleasing scents for every occasion.
Taking luxury beauty to the next level, Holt Renfrew Ogilvy’s Beauty Hall will also feature a dedicated Clean Beauty area, a sunglasses shop for women and pop up event spaces throughout the floor. Many of the brands available are exclusive to Holt Renfrew in Canada, making this a truly unique shopping destination.
Gentlemen have a space of their own
For the guys, Holt Renfrew’s new Menswear Hall will continue to offer the same dedicated service that we have all come to expect over the years. The new men’s department features over 25 new vendor shops including Balenciaga, Brioni, Burberry, Dior, Givenchy, Moncler, Saint Laurent Paris and more. The department will also feature footwear by Christian Louboutin and Gucci, a dedicated personal shopping area, a grooming area including shops by Creed, Tom Ford, Hermès and Acqua di Parma, a suit shop presenting a plethora of trusted brand names as well as a chic menswear designer area featuring brands such as Balmain, Givenchy, Comme des garçons, Saint Laurent, Acne and many more.
From humble beginnings as a hat shop in Québec City to the powerhouse fashion and beauty retailer whose name has become synonymous with luxury, Holt Renfrew’s renewed dedication to luxury in Canada has cemented its place in the world’s fashion and beauty industry. As the leader of luxury specialty retail across the country, Holt Renfrew Ogilvy will set the stage for what is expected to be an exciting new chapter in this Canadian company’s colourful history.
