Just opened: Burberry quietly unveils its Yorkdale store today

Yorkdale's newly opened Burberry 

Rumours have been circulating this summer about the opening of two Burberry stores in Toronto, and while we managed confirm this, the company wasn’t forthcoming with details about where or when these locations would open.

So trench-coat adoring, plaid-loving Anglophiles can rejoice today as Toronto’s first Burberry boutique quietly opened its doors in Yorkdale mall. (We hear the second will come to Yorkville in October.) Along with Crate and Barrel and Michael Kors, the launch is another victory for the North York shopping centre. 

Both women’s and men’s apparel are on offer, with a large selection of fall outerwear (women’s trench, $1,195), though the more exclusive Prorsum collection is absent. A small children’s section in the back is stocked with adorable miniature versions of the adult line (a boy’s polo is $85).

The front of the space is devoted to accessories: handbags, watches, scarves (an oversized checked cashmere version is $350) and shoes, including wellies in the company’s signature Haymarket check. The rain in the forecast this weekend might be the perfect excuse to try on a pair.
