Vancouver's Leisure Center Highlights the Intersection of Fashion and Art

Redefining luxury.

By //Fashion

Looking to redefine luxury, Vancouver’s Leisure Center recently opened its doors to offer a new take on the intersection of fashion and art. Designed by Casper Mueller Kneer Architects, the 22,000 square foot concept store — housed inside a 1930’s heritage building serves as both a retail space and a cultural hub.

Complete with a tonic bar, the minimalist top floor of the Leisure Center utilizes L-shaped walls to create a museum-esque open labyrinth. Aluminium panels section the garments, books, music, furniture and cosmetics offerings from Vetements, Comme des Garçons, Balenciaga, MA+, Guidi, Rick Owens, Loewe, Yohji Yamamoto and Yang Li found on the retail-focused floor. The lower level builds a lifestyle feel around the garments found above, with black glass and felt forming multifunctional units that act as changing rooms, personal-shopping spaces, seminar rooms and art galleries.

Take a look inside Vancouver’s Leisure Center above and let us know what you think about the new retail space. For more contemporary fashion news, make sure to check out our look at why Seoul, South Korea is the hottest fashion city in Asia.
