A new clothing store in the city’s West End will open this week, and it is being billed as the “world’s first women-only apparel store”.
The outlet, called F.I.E.O., will be located in the former Laundromat space of the Diner, at 888 West Hastings St. It will sell a range of items, including jeans, shirts and coats, plus accessories like hoodies and scarves.
The store will also have a full bar and a barista, which will be open during lunch hours.
I toe in hand?
No, but it’s the kind of thing we’re really interested in in the future.
The brand is currently offering a range from their collection of men’s, women’s and children’s clothing and will be launching a range in the spring.
O. co-owner and founder of The Next World, Shashank Ganesan, told CBC News that the store is a “no-frills, affordable option for men”.
He added that he was interested in finding a space that would cater to “people who want a more feminine look, but who want to wear a shirt and tie for everyday wear”.
Ganesans, who owns several stores, including one in Toronto, told The Globe and Mail that he has already had interest from other brands.
“We are looking at many options to try to figure out the perfect fit for our customers, and to keep our focus on the brand,” he said.
“We want to make sure that we don’t forget our customers or the brand.”
The outlet will offer an array of brands, including Gucci, Adidas, Levi’s, Louis Vuitton, Ralph Lauren, Ralph Burch, Reebok and more.
According to the brand’s website, the store will “provide affordable and affordable quality men’s apparel, tailored for men and women.
We have a great range of men-only clothing, from top-of-the-line to casual and from casual to casual, for men, women and kids.
We also have men’s and women’s apparel that is suitable for different age groups.
We offer a range for kids, men’s shoes, men clothing and men’s boots, for all ages.”
The shop will also carry a range that includes a range featuring a selection of items for men’s footwear, including a Men’s Shoe Shop.
In addition, Ganesen said that the outlet will also offer a selection “for men’s grooming products, from body oils and hand soaps to haircare products and haircare wipes”.
“As a company, we’re committed to finding a way to bring our customers to us, whether that’s in the fashion world or in the retail world, so that they can find the right fit for themselves,” Ganesesan said.
He added that the F. E.O. outlet will be “the first in the world” to have a women-specific line.
Ganesans said that he will be opening up his own clothing store “later this year”.
