Upscale boutiques and opulent galleries speckle the converging Lilac and Corydon strips. Originally Winnipeg’s Little Italy, this district has become diversified over recent years, and now boasts more sushi than manicotti. Begin on the south side of Corydon, near Daly, where Uomo has been suiting dapper men for 20 years. Here, slick Massani leather jackets are cashmere lined for cozy comfort. Cross the street and walk west just past Lilac to Room for Style Interiors, where classic and contemporary furnishings co-exist in a stunning showroom. Adjacent Radiance is Manitoba’s go-to for all things metaphysical, including fashionable jewellery that employs the beauty and power of crystals. Footwear fanatics kick up their heels at Soul Shoes, which carries chic shoes and boots from the likes of Steve Madden and Sam Edelman (pictured). Next door readers find the perfect retreat at Whodunit, a quaint book shop curated by avid mystery-loving owners.
