Unique Spanish fashion jewelry and accessories brand, UNOde50, will enter the Canadian market with two boutiques, both scheduled to open in the fall of 2015.
Founded in Madrid in 1996, UNOde50 was created by a group of designers looking to produce previously unavailable jewellery styles. Its aim was to break away from trends and with its own philosophy and personality and according to the company, it merges "tradition and modernity" with a "handcrafted spirit that reflects exclusivity through design and quality".
The brand began with the philosophy of creating 50 units of each design, hence its name. Over time and due to rising sales, the brand increased production but still retained the name to reflect the quality and exclusivity of each design. Today, the company continues to produce some 50-piece limited edition collections.
UNOde50 will open its first two Canadian boutiques in Toronto. One will be at Toronto Eaton Centre, and the other at Sherway Gardens. Both will open within newly-built mall expansions. The brand is represented in Canada by Jessica Hughes of brokerage Oberfeld Snowcap.
UNOde50 currently operates over 60 locations globally, with 22 boutiques in the United States.
