fashion label flagship
A collaboration with Tommy Smythe, this retail shop in midtown Toronto is the first to bring Ashley Botten’s distinctive sensibilities to the world of fashion. Its primary scheme derives from a shared love for wood and is expanded on with a curated selection of natural materials that have been oxidized, smoked, or blackened. An unexpected beauty is found in the terracotta brick flooring that infuses an old-world classic with a contemporary vibe. Wall-size feature boxes in the foyer, each with a single hook for displaying a solitary garment or styled outfit, create stop-and-look moments that are visible from the street.
