We love Paris: the food, the romance, the quintessential Parisian fashion that can be found in boutiques throughout the city.
When Canon Blanc arrived in Uptown Yonge in 2014, it brought fashion from designers in Paris, London, and Copenhagen to the neighbourhood—without requiring an 8 hour flight. Women’s and children’s designs are luxury basics: limited edition pieces that last for years and transition from office to evening wear. Iconic brand Petit Bateau is easily recognized by their trademark stripes, and smaller designers including Elsa Esturgie and Stine Goya are chic without commanding haute couture prices.
Racks of clothing are found throughout the shop, while displays hold a carefully chosen selection of footwear and jewellery. There are a lot of single pieces here, and return visits net new fashion discoveries. A complete look can be suggested by staff who know Parisian trends well, and have a passion for the city that inspires this decadent boutique.
