We are so fortunate at Park Royal to be the host to so many amazing retailers. Amongst those retailers is the largest Aritzia store in Canada, found right here at Park Royal.  We interviewed Tiyana Grulovic to tell us a bit more about the store.

Eyes or Lips? Lips.

A must have staple from Aritzia? Blanket scarf forever and ever.

What is one trend that is unique to the Aritzia brand or that you feel Aritzia started? Effortless dressing! It’s what we think about when looking at all of our product, across all of our lines. Ultimately, there needs to be an ease to it. What we’re great at making are the clothes you want to spend your life in, no matter where it takes you.


How long has your new store at Park Royal been open? We opened our Aritzia store in February of 2014. It’s our largest store in Canada!

How much do you love the street front façade at Park Royal along Marine Drive? We do. Park Royal is my favourite storefront we have!

Are there any unique design features about your Park Royal location? What are they? What inspired them? We invest in our boutiques to ensure that every detail – from quality of design and materials to the workmanship – lives up to our exceptionally high standards – and each store is unique with an environment that is well-designed, comfortable and personable.

Our Park Royal store is 7,000 square feet and showcases high, open ceilings, carefully curated artwork, including many local and female artists, technology installations and cabin themed fitting rooms.

Something shoppers might find exciting? Our retail staff are, hands down, the best in the business and share an unparalled personal shopping experience that is friendly, knowledgeable and tailored to the needs of each client.

Can you give us a hint about what to expect from the Spring line? Colors? Textiles? For Spring ’15, we’re embracing purity and lightness and taking things back to a natural starting point. From culottes and kimonos in earthy, sun-faded linens and washed-down indigos to effortless monochromatic ensembles and softer than soft suede accessories, our collections offer elevated designs and unparalleled quality. These are the clothes you’ll want to live in, every day, every night


Best thing about Vancouver? It’s close proximity to both mountain and beach

I’m dying to go to: Bao Bei, over and over again.

Someone I’d like to share a conversation with: Joan Didion and Taylor Swift in equal measure.

First word you think of when I say “Park Royal”: ARITZIA!
