(English) Holt Renfrew’s brand new hr2

If Holts is the grande dame of retail in Montreal, then hr2 is her style-savvy little sister on the South Shore.

Not much about Quartier DIX30 in Brossard had me too excited until last week, when Holt Renfrew opened its new concept store, hr2. Along with a few other fashionistas, I was treated to a sneak-peak shopping spree the night before the official opening. Not entirely sure what to expect, we were delighted to discover a bright, spacious and well-organized store with rows of covetable designer shoes, dresses, handbags and other accessories, all at very affordable prices.

It was difficult to decide which of our favourite brands we were going to take home, because there was just so much to love. To-die-for dresses by DVF, Alice + Olivia, Elie Tahari and more were priced around $200–$300. We tried on shoes and handbags galore, including styles from Dior, Kate Spade and a pair of nude patent Louboutins (at an astounding $199) that had everyone’s jaw dropping.

It’s now officially okay to head over the bridge for head-over-heels designer deals!
