Must-Shop: WANT Apothecary Boutique
When we received the media invitation for WANT Apothecary store opening, we assumed that we’ll be visiting a beauty boutique. It was and then some. The charming shop nestled in Westmount, offers a neatly edited selection of fashion brands along with lux accessory lines and fine body-care products.
Created by the Peart brothers, Dexter and Byron have taken the timeless and chic essence of their own leather-goods line WANT Les Essentiels de la Vie, and conceptualized a design that is rich in heritage and refined style. (No surprise here, their dapper style was featured on The Sartorialist!)
Inspired by 19th-century European pharmacies- think Baldwin Barmacie meets luxes of Holt Renfrew- the look and feel is modern with a classic twist finished in herringbone flooring, marble detailing and custom-design furnishing.
Oh and can’t forget the fashion. We loved the selection of Acne, Nudie Jeans, Maison Kitsuné and Aesop beauty brand offerings.
