The Bay at Pacific Centre was the landing spot for Kiehl's first ever Canadian shop-in-shop. Shelly Rosenwald, Senior Vice President of The Bay's cosmetics department, Kristin Armstrong, Kiehl's Canada's Vice President General Manager, Donna Paty, Kiehl's National Education Manager, and local designer, Jason Matlo, joined shoppers and media to celebrate the special opening event.
The shop-in-shop was designed to emulate the atmosphere of their New York flagship store, and will bring the full Kiehl's experience to shoppers.
I took the opportunity to sniff their new Aromatic Blends collection!! If you are a fan of fruity sweet scents you should definitely check it out!
Kiehl's teamed up with local designer Jason Matlo to create a special edition T-shirt featuring a fantastically blinged out Mr. Bones. All proceeds from the sale of the T-shirt will go to Camp Goodtimes, a charity which organises Summer camp for children with cancer.
Jason and his team spent over 50 hours bedazzling Mr. Bones with
over 30,000 Swarovski crystals. This dapper Mr. Bones will be a
permanent feature at the shop-in-shop.
The artist with his work. Funny story, I later found out that Jason and I have mutual friends. Talk about 6 degrees of separation.
There is a plan to introduce the shop-in-shop concept to Bay stores across Canada, but in the meantime you visit them the next time you are in downtown Vancouver. Ask one of their awesome technicians for a skin analysis and pick up some great skincare!
p.s what would a post on Kiehl's be without the famous Kiehl's dog? Fresh from a bath with Kiehl's Cuddly Coat <3>3>
