Prada-owned Miu Miu has opened its second Canadian store within Yorkdale Shopping Centre‘s Holt Renfrew. Canada’s first Miu Miu store opened in February of 2013 at Holt Renfrew’s Bloor Street flagship in Toronto. Both operate as leased concessions within Holt Renfrew.

Yorkdale’s new Miu Miu store is similar in size to the Bloor Street location, which is about 450 square feet. As with Bloor Street’s Miu Miu, Yorkdale’s carries only accessories and handbags, and no women’s clothing. 

The shop was designed and executed by Toronto-based dkstudio inc., which has designed some of Canada’s most prestigious stores including several Louis Vuitton stores, Prada at Yorkdale’s Holt Renfrew, and De Beers in Vancouver

There are currently 17 leased Miu Miu boutiques in the United States. Ten are free-standing shops that carry women’s ready-to-wear. The other seven are accessory boutiques like those in Canada, and six of those are within Saks Fifth Avenue stores while one is within Manhattan’s flagship Bloomingdale’s store. No word yet if Saks Fifth Avenue will attempt to secure Miu Miu leases when it opens in Canada.
