Her­itage fash­ion re­tailer Si­mons has opened its first-ever Van­cou­ver store at Park Royal Shop­ping Cen­tre. Lo­cated in West Van­cou­ver, the 100,000 square-foot space of­fers the lat­est men’s and women’s fash­ions, but is also home to three per­ma­nent large-scale art in­stal­la­tions. With art be­ing an im­por­tant part of ev­ery Si­mons store, it’s no sur­prise that west coast-based artists Jody Broom­field, Bob­bie Burg­ers, and Dou­glas Cou­p­land (whose colour­ful in­stal­la­tion, Bow Tie, hangs be­tween the two floors), have works on dis­play for shop­pers to en­joy. Over 900 guests from the art, de­sign, and fash­ion in­dus­tries wel­comed the 175-year-old, Que­bec City-based brand to the west with an in-store launch party.
