Suzi Roher and Samantha Day (the mother and daughter team behind the Suzi Roher Accessories Inc.) hosted the opening of their new retail store at 870 Queen St. W.
It is a stunning place, located by Trinity Bellwoods Park and it reflects the style that the brand is known for.
The store was designed by Mason Studio, a Toronto company known for their projects including Restaurant La Banane, iQ Food Co. Picnic, and Andaz Hotel. The 100-year-old building has been turned into a bright and airy space with three floors showcasing Suzi Roher‘s art and fashion lines. The store has so much to look at including their handmade scarves, belts, jewelry, clothing and shoes, all curated by Suzi herself. It feels like a combination of an art gallery with all of the fantastic original art on the walls (available for purchase) and a one-stop shopping fashion experience.
The main floor is the retail hub. The second floor has been designed to be more of an event space, and the third floor has a deck which looks out at the beauty of Trinity Bellwoods Park. The three stories flow so well together, and it indeed is a three-dimensional canvas.
The store features the F/W 2018-2019 Collection with a focus on their famous line of belts: some with buckles featuring alligators, lions, and tigers), some made from snake leather and all are fully adjustable in the back. The belts can work with everyone’s body shape and can be worn even over blazers. Their Italian made scarves, using a variety of materials including wool, cashmere, and silk are all wearable art. Each scarf has a special message. There is an homage to Hollywood glam (Hedy Lamar, Rock Hudson) philosophy like Lightness of Being, Perfection is Boring, Eggs Cannot Be Unscrambled and My Way; rock and roll (Break on Through) and love ( Love You 2X, J’ Adore). The colour patterns for Fall/Winter are a bit darker but still have a vibrancy to them.
Suzi Roher Accessories is a beautiful addition to Toronto’s Queen Street West and a must see.
