If you haven’t noticed, the southwest corner of Burrard and West Georgia has been covered in orange wrapping paper for months. Orange wrapping paper with Hermés ribbons, to be exact. After months of waiting, the highly anticipated new Vancouver Hermés location has officially opened its doors. The massive space is stylish and elegant, just like you’d imagine.
Vancouver’s new Hermés retailer is located at 717 Burrard Street and opens from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday to Sunday and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sundays. And wow, you really need to see it for yourself.
“Nearly 25 years ago, we opened our first store in Vancouver, and today we're proud to unveil an enhanced retail experience that finds inspiration in the striking landscape, quality of living, and strength of spirit that defines Vancouver,” said Jennifer Carter, President and CEO of Hermès Canada in a media release.
The chic space was designed by Parisian architecture firm, RDAI, who focused on the store's surroundings in Vancouver for inspiration. According to the media release, the beautiful two-story building is meant to evoke feelings of both land and sea.
We are so excited about this new addition to Vancouver's downtown for a number of reasons. For one, it's facade is truly beautiful, adding a new charm to its corner. Furthermore, Hermés is an icon in the fashion and design space and they are using our city for inspiration in both this new location and some of their new designs. It's pretty special.
When you first enter, you will find jewelry, watches, the silk universe, and a perfume discovery area. Next, you will come across the leather universe, the equestrian collection, and the men’s universe.
Upstairs, customers will find Hermés’ home collections with homeware, tableware, and wallpaper. Next, the truly jaw-dropping women’s universe with shoes, accessories, and a private salon. Yes, we said a private salon!
On top of the expected Hermés staples, you’ll also find special products developed specifically for Vancouver. For example, roller skates to celebrate the playful activity of the city. There are also bags and other accessories inspired directly by Vancouver’s landscape. It’s so Hermés and so Vancouver all at once.
We are welcoming Vancouver's new Hermés location with open arms and we're telling you, you need to check it out. The orange paper is gone and in its place stands a fashion icon. Go see for yourself.
