20130708-214840.jpg I love shoes- but I think I love good retail design even more. And such is the case with the new Aldo flagship at Yorkdale Mall in Toronto. It’s a beautiful graphic space, with smart design features like LED lighting sleekly incorporated into shelving and subtly nods to their branding in graphic prints and patterns throughout (even the floor was designed with the “A” motif in mind). Designed by Montreal based Raphael Sottolichio in collaboration with the UK branding firm Dry.

You’ll have to come to the event to see which ones I choose. Regardless, I’ll be back for another visit of this smartly designed location very soon!
