The 100,000-square-foot shop got the star design treatment€”here’s your first look.

Simons opened its latest store in North Vancouver last week to much fashionista fanfare (check out our party pics here), but what we’re most pumped for with the arrival of the Quebec-based store is the thoughtful retail design—inviting, boutique-like departments; plenty of awesome light fixtures; and even art installations from some Vancouver greats. Take a peek inside the 100,000-square-foot Park Royal shop with the gallery below.

Douglas Coupland’s oversized “Bow Tie” artwork is a subtle nod to the North Shore€”two peaks, representing the area’s mountains, face each other to create the sculpture’s shape.

Simons Vancouver’s 50-seat cafe, Eve, features work from 15 Arts Umbrella students. The store has made a three-year commitment to the non-profit youth arts program to showcase pieces.

A sandblasted granite design by Coast Salish artist Jody Broomfield adorns the south entrance of the store.

The creative minds behind Rollout’s wallpaper designs bring a stylized mix of foliage and floral motifs to the Indoor Garden patterns ($10 per square foot).

The 100,000-square-foot store features accessories alongside clothing and homewares.

Each of the departments in the store were designed to create a “boutique-like shopping experience.”

A variety of bold carpets help distinguish one department from the next.

The Porada Bignè table with an Emperador Dark marble top ($3,600) is the deepest brown laced with amber veining€”or a little bit of black magic.

A stunning brass light fixture lights up a selection of on-trend outerwear.

A helpful diagram of how to tie a tie acts as both decor and good life advice.

The robust bath section of Maison Simons is decked out in classic white subway tile.

Miiyu, the lingerie department, showcases both cloud-like light fixtures and a dreamy wall mural.

Gold posts hang down from the ceiling in the budget-friendly Twik section.

Black and green are the key colours in the Icone department.
