Canada Goose Vancouver

Canada Goose, known for its weightless warmth, premium knitwear and cold-weather gear, has just opened a 3,900 square-foot Vancouver flagship store at CF Pacific Centre. The sparkly new space features a large assortment of Canada Goose products (with over 200 styles and colourways) and premium accessories for adults, youth, kids and babies.

The product assortment also includes rainwear, knitwear and lightweight down jackets, perfect for Vancouver’s wet coast weather. Limited-edition collab pieces and retail-only exclusives also feature as part of their extensive inventory.

I had the chance to attend their media preview ahead of opening day as well, giving me the chance to check out the clothing line, interior design and Canadian artwork.

The Vancouver flagship includes a curated selection of works by artists who share the brand’s origins and ethos, rooted in the Canadian North.

Many of the prints, drawings and sculptures showcased throughout the store are from artists native to Cape Dorset, known as the Capital of Inuit Art. Their work is a tribute to Canada’s Northern communities, whose long history of quality craftsmanship has both informed and inspired Canada Goose’s own parka designs.

All artwork featured in the Vancouver store is sourced in partnership with art curator Natalie MacNamara of NAMARA. Accent pieces such as polar bear sculptures crafted from serpentinite (a stone from the Cape Dorset area) are a nod to the brand’s longstanding relationship with Polar Bears International.

The cash desk is carved from a single piece of marble sourced from a quarry on Vancouver Island. Weighing more than 2,700 pounds, the rock has been left raw, with minimal polish to evoke the natural wear of glaciers and icebergs.

This flagship is Canada Goose’s third store in Canada (ninth store globally) joining locations in Toronto, New York, Chicago, Tokyo, London and Boston. This year the brand has already opened stores in New Jersey and Hong Kong.

Look for future Canada Goose store openings in both Montreal and Beijing in late 2018.
