Gucci just opened its first store in Edmonton

Apr 7 2021, 6:49 pm

The first Gucci store to come to YEG just opened at West Edmonton Mall, bringing shoppers over 6,500 square feet of designer Italian fashion.

The boutique opened its doors at the end of March to display a wide collection of Gucci’s finest pieces. Offerings include jewelry, watches, handbags, fragrance, eyewear, and shoes.

Edmonton’s new Gucci store was designed to appear both modern and traditional, with contrasting elements that create curiosity while leaving shoppers feeling as if they’re constantly discovering new aspects of the store.

Gucci says that the boutique’s styling invites customers to feel welcome and relaxed, and the company aims to create a space that feels personal to every customer that enters the doors.

“The mood within the store is one of discretion, where understated drama is created by the surprising and unexpected combination of materials,” reads a media release from Gucci. “Soft elements like velvet armchairs offset harder surfaces and industrial elements, such as rivets.”

Gucci stays true to its roots in the new Edmonton space, with artisan painted floors that were handcrafted in Italy. Vintage oriental rugs, velvet armchairs, and iron wall finishes completing the look.

A determinedly spare use of space throughout the store allows Gucci’s elegant and contemporary designs to stand out. Present in every piece are the quality, attention to detail, and eclecticism that characterize the collections.

Edmonton’s first Gucci brings the luxurious shopping experience that fans of the brand are used to, with new elements that are sure to delight.
