Zane is located in Toronto’s Queen West neighborhood just west of Queen Street West and Bathurst. After having worked in high-end retail, such as Holt Renfrew, for years owner Zane noticed a gap in availability for high quality mid-ranged goods. With it’s clean white walls and flood of natural light the space feels more like a contemporary art gallery than a hip and stylish destination for accessories.

Known for their large selection of Rebecca Minkoff handbags, Karen Walker sunglasses, Mackage, and many others, Zane curates collections from designers from around that world that are well made, yet stand out subtly. The Zane customer prizes structure and design over trends and labels.

In addition to global designers, Zane also carries a wide selection of collections from popular local Toronto brands such as Hoi Bo handbags, Jenny Bird Jewelry, and Opelle. A definite draw in Toronto, especially in the Queen West neighborhood, where locally made and unique goods are highly prized. It once again speaks to the aesthetic and beliefs of Zane though, offering items that are slightly more exclusive and incredibly well made.

Soon to be released is Zane’s own private label collection of handbags and accessories. Made from leather and produced locally in Toronto the new line is subtle yet chic. Like everything else in the shop it hits a mid-range price point at around $165 CDN for tote, almost a steal for a bag made entirely of Italian leather that feels like butter to the touch.

Zane aims to be more than just an accessory shop though. An art installation by local Toronto artist Josh Ingleby, hangs in the window to bring a hip and interesting vibe to the storefront display. Unlike most shops the window displays here do not rotate as frequently, with aim of not only showcasing local talent but also as a way to draw the community in and to start conversations. It’s exactly what Toronto, especially the Queen West neighborhood is all about, and Zane is exactly the place to find it.
