TORONTO, ON (July 26, 2018) – Building on the success of Cadillac Fairview’s pop-up shop concept, CF Collective, CF Toronto Eaton Centre is proud to host the popular limited-run retail experience in Centre Court from Thursday August 2 to Sunday August 5, 2018. Designed as a pilot program to incubate local retailers not normally found in traditional shopping centre settings, the third installment of CF Collective will feature three up-and-coming Toronto-based retailers: Sonic Bloom, Blackhare, and CUT Designs.
Helmed by Toronto-based artist, Judyth Zorbok, Sonic Bloom specializes in whimsical botanicals and succulents in cleverly upcycled dinosaur toy planters and highly-stylized hand-poured concrete planter pots. Designed with a modern aesthetic along with a touch of humor, Sonic Bloom features a unique line of planters with prices ranging from $15 to $60.
Founded by husband and wife team, Nick Chase and Monica Resendes, Blackhare is committed to creating high quality, hand-crafted tops and tees fit for the entire family. Blackhare uses only the softest TriBlend materials and 100% cotton in their exclusive collection of hand-printed t-shirts for babies, kids, women and men. Featuring unique designs ranging from Toronto-centric pieces to abstract art, t-shirts start at $24.
CUT design, founded by Toronto-native Rebecca Thorpe, specializes in city cartography. Each map is hand-drawn and hand-cut out of paper with precision and patience. Unlike laser-cut maps, CUT Designs’ maps are a true labour of love with each taking anywhere from three to 24-hours to complete. The collection currently features more than 60 different areas from around the world and range in size from 3x5” to 11x17” with prices starting at $55.
“As a proud member of the Toronto community, CF Toronto Eaton Centre is delighted to welcome three local entrepreneurs to the centre as part our CF Collective program,” says Sheila Jennings, General Manager, CF Toronto Eaton Centre. “At CF Toronto Eaton Centre, we aim to deliver a compelling mix of retail offerings while providing uniquely curated in-mall experiences that resonates with our guests, and we believe CF Collective seamlessly marries both of these objectives.”
