Building New Roots with Flagship Boutique

Roots Canada Flagship store.

Rustic meets contemporary at the new Roots flagship.

What better way for a brand to celebrate its birthday than by opening a new store? That’s how iconic Canadian retailer Roots is ushering in its 41st year—with a new flagship boutique on the Mink Mile. Design director Diane Bald and senior director of planning and development Pauline Landriault have created a seamless two-storey space that marries the company’s signature rustic appeal with contemporary touches that honour its updated address’s original Miesian influence. Knotted oak, natural travertine stone, brushed brass and Tribe leather foster a subtle and serene setting in which to peruse Roots’s active apparel, footwear and supple leather goods. Open daily. —Linda Luong
