Upscale Toronto-based multi-brand leather goods and luggage retailer Betty Hemmings has rebranded and relocated its Yorkville operations to an impressive new store across from its former location on updated ‘Yorkville Lane’. Now called ‘B Hemmings & Co’, the retailer carries a range of exclusive brands with impressive histories of craftsmanship, some of which are only available at the store in Canada, in a retail space inspired by luxury train cars.
The central room of the new B Hemmings & Co features a vaulted ceiling, bronze trim, wood and leather that are reminiscent of the grand days of train travel on the Orient Express. Flowing arched ceilings are framed by riveted bronze trim plates.
