Just when you convinced yourself four pairs of leggings is more than enough leggings, Bandier comes to town. The American activewear retailer is partnering with Holt Renfrew for a four-month pop-up shop in their Bloor Street store. The pop-up, which opens today and runs through January 30th, will offer wellness events and fitness classes similar to those offered at Studio B, the concept studio in Bandier’s Flatiron, NYC location. (Details regarding the types of classes have yet to be announced).
“A growing portion of our e-commerce business is coming from Canada, so the opportunity to interact with customers in person, and to provide the full store experience, is invaluable to us,” said founder Jennifer Bandier in a statement. The store will feature a curated selection of items from Alala, Aviator Nation, Body Language, Cotton Citizen, Heroine Sport, Koral, LNDR, and SAM, in additional to Canadian brands like Michi.
The lightning-bolt patterned Summer Storm collection, the third collaboration between Bandier and Ultracor, will arrive in store next week. Our recommendation? Act fast. The two previous collabs resulted in 1,000-person deep waiting lists before the products launched.
