Pop-up Pick: Holt Renfrew celebrates India with a colourful new shop-within-a-shop
Toronto’s retail pop-up scene is gaining momentum, with new shopping opportunities emerging (and then disappearing) all the time. We’re keeping a lookout for the temporary shops you don’t want to miss.
Holt Renfrew’s new pop-up shop is as colourful and fun as a Bollywood dance party. Uncrate India is the first in a series of cultural pop-ups at Holts’s store-within-a-store, H Project. The products were all sourced from Indian artisans encountered by Alexandra Weston and designer Waris Ahluwalia (founder of House of Waris) on their weeks-long journey across the subcontinent, with stops in New Delhi, Udaipur, Jaipur and Mandawa. The curated collection includes a mix of clothing, accessories and home-decor items, like woven rugs, hand-printed summer throws and intricately patterned lampshades. Our favourite pieces? The silky batik scarves and funky statement necklaces, both good choices for livening up a basic spring outfit.

I agree, this is a great idea. But I went to the Holt store on Bloor West and all I saw was a small table of bits from India, not as much as I’d hope to see. And no one on site to man the table and answer some of my questions.
