Fashion brand Ralph Lauren has opened a dedicated digital commerce platform and its first luxury store in Canada.
Located on the ground floor of Toronto’s Yorkdale Shopping Centre, the store is the first in a planned expansion in Canada, complementing the brand’s existing wholesale and outlet footprint in Toronto.
The new store houses a mix of Men’s Purple Label and Women’s Collection, as well as a curated selection of Polo Ralph Lauren Men’s and Women’s collections.
Besides product offerings, the store provides dedicated client services, including private styling appointments, alterations and repairs and Made-to-Measure tailoring.
The new site, RalphLauren.ca, will offer the company’s full portfolio of brands, including Purple Label, Ralph Lauren Collection, Polo Ralph Lauren, Double RL and Lauren.
Ralph Lauren will launch the English version of its Canadian digital commerce site on 11 October, with plans to launch in Quebec with a French-language version.
