Luxury handbags from around the world are becoming more accessible to Toronto shoppers, as new Taschen! boutiques emerge around the city.
The retail chain, which carries high end handbags, briefcases, personal leather goods and luggage, recently opened a new Yorkville location. Taschen! now has two Yorkville locations, as well as one right downtown at King and Yonge, along with locations in Montreal and Calgary.
I didn’t recognize all of the chain’s brands when I stopped by to check out the boutique earlier this week, but I was immediately impressed at the high quality of its merchandise. Most of the labels come from abroad, such as Bree, Rimowa and Porsche Design from Germany, Bric’s from Italy, and Le Sportsac and Kipling from the U.S.
I particularly like the Bree label leather handbags and wallets, which are both stylish and high quality.
More Taschen! stores could be on the way, as the company is looking to expand into other high-end Toronto neighbourhoods.
