Upscale Montreal-based fashion brand Mackage has opened its first freestanding Canadian location at CF Carrefour Laval in suburban Montreal. The 2,133 square foot store features Burdefilek-designed interiors “reminiscent of a ski chalet with wood beamed ceilings and wood floors. The mix of materials used for fixtures includes bronzed black metal, cerused oak paneling and black honed marble,” according to Mackage co-founder Elisa Dahan.  

Next week we'll be interviewing Mackage's co-founders to gain insight into plans to open more freestanding Canadian locations. Below are photos of the Laval store, provided by Mackage.
