Toronto Boutiques: WANT Apothecary
WANT Les Essentiels, the Montreal-based brand known for their no-fuss, travel-friendly accessories, recently brought its Apothecary concept north of downtown to Toronto’s Lawrence Park neighbourhood. And if that doesn’t sound like the most obvious choice for a 19th century-pharmacy-inspired boutique, that’s on purpose, says co-founder Dexter Peart. “We want to be early stewards to neighbourhoods and we try to anticipate the next thing. We thought Lawrence Park was the next opportunity. The clientele are appreciative of the fact that there’s something different from everything else that’s around.” Like all Apothecary stores, this location stocks hand-picked designs by Jil Sander, Acne Studios and up-and-coming labels like Xu Zhi along with cult-fave beauty items and candles in addition to the brand's own wares.
