Stuart Weitzman

Stuart Weitzman’s New Bloor Street Store Satisfies Shoe Fetishists

Stuart Weitzman's new Bloor Street store

Stuart Weitzman’s new Bloor Street store

Footwear impresario Stuart Weitzman is set this month to open an eponymous flagship boutique on the Mink Mile. This eighth Canadian outpost—locally there are two others at the Toronto Eaton Centre and Sherway Gardens—joins such lofty Bloor Street West neighbours as Prada, Michael Kors, Cartier and Chanel. Designed by Italian architect Fabio Novembre, the 1,800-square-foot shoe haven boasts a mosaic tile accent wall, Alphano stone floors and serpentine shelving accenting a steely palette of white and grey, which is all the better to display Weitzman’s collection of stilettos, boots and handbags favoured by the likes of the Duchess of Cambridge, Beyonce and Angelina Jolie.  —Linda Luong
