Luxury French fashion brand ba&sh, founded by best friends Barbara Boccara and Sharon Krief, has opened its first store in Vancouver. The bold brand’s distinct Parisian style aims to encourage confidence through high-end, ready-to wear fashion pieces, shoes and accessories. The new 660-square-foot retail space is the first in North America to feature ba&sh’s global design concept: think organic materials, rounded shapes and natural silhouettes.

Le Creuset


Calgary’s home cookware scene is levelling up. Beloved French brand (and Julia Child fave) Le Creuset has reopened its boutique store in Chinook Centre, and it’s the first new concept store of its kind to open in Canada. The layout is inspired by a modern kitchen (complete with open shelving and large island-like surfaces)to give professional and amateur chefs a chance to peruse the latest collections in their natural habitat.
