Best Shopping in Vancouver

By Chris Boyle

As a stylish modern metropolis with plenty of luxury to offer, Vancouver has more than its fair share of chic designer shopping.

Sexy one-of-a-kind boutiques, swish upscale malls and glittering flagship stores promise the hottest global brands and cutting-edge couture from hip local designers. Read on for more on our favorite Vancouver style spots.

HOLT RENFREW

Holt Renfrew

Think designer apparel, beauty products and haute handbags for women, and made-tomeasure shirts and upscale collections for men.

This is Holt Renfrew, the preferred shopping destination for international VIPs and celebs such as Vanessa Hudgens, Katie Holmes and her four-year-old daughter Suri (who compared lipsticks on her hand). Holt’s beauty services include beauty workshops and facial and body treatments. In addition, a concierge can find you theater tickets and obtain restaurant reservations, and any of the store’s four personal shoppers will put your wardrobe together. A perfect blend of retail and pampering.

Stand out from the crowd at One of a Few, which is located on a cobbled road in historic Gastown.

Here you’ll find one-of-a-kind stylish clothing and accessories that defy the mass market. Clients include Zac Efron, Jessica Alba, Darryl Hannah and Rosario Dawson. Some of the limited edition clothing is made from natural fabrics and includes goodies such as balloon button-up dresses and Collina Strada leather purses.
