Harry Rosen

Canada's Finest Menswear Since 1954

“My father’s philosophy was to carry menswear that dresses leaders, visionaries and creatives who drive our communities—this vision still informs Harry Rosen today.” Larry Rosen, CEO

Starting with a $500 loan in 1954, Harry and his brother Lou opened a small made-to-measure menswear store in East Toronto’s Cabbagetown. From day one, Harry’s vision was to become a prestigious men’s boutique that exemplifies service, craftsmanship, and individualization in clothing and accessories.

With a curation of the world’s top menswear labels, decades of accumulated product and style expertise, and an understanding of what the modern man wants in his wardrobe, Harry Rosen is here to help men be their best in their personal and professional lives.

FASHION

Smythe

Friends first, now co-founders and designers, Andrea Lenczner and Christie Smythe launched SMYTHE in 2004. Coming from two different business backgrounds and design styles, they were on a unified mission to perfect one thing: the women’s blazer. Advanced styling, methodical tailoring, impeccable construction and designed to embolden the women who wear it; SMYTHE is the perfect, perfectly fitted blazer. After 15 years, they've expanded beyond blazers to a full ready-to-wear collection. The passion and methodology remains, as does the friendship.

ba&sh

Ba&sh is a French fashion brand founded by best friends Barbara & Sharon who wanted to bring to life their dream wardrobe for all occasions.  Each collection is designed in Paris to exude spontaneous, carefree femininity—with a distinctly Parisian point of view.    

A truly global brand, ba&sh  is backed by  LVMH  and grew first explosively in France and broader Europe, and most recently, has expanded to North America and Asia.  The brand is represented in over 70 countries with more than 320 stores contributing to its continued success. In 2015, L Catterton and Groupe Arnault acquired an entity interest. This resulted in a record level of international expansion supported by multi-directional and digital deployment managed by the executive team, founders Barbara Boccara, Sharon Krief, Dan Arrouas and Pierre-Arnaud Grenade, the brand’s CEO who joined the team during the L Catterton investment. In May 2022, ba&sh attracted investment from French firm HLD alongside existing shareholders and the executive team, to pursue their ambitious growth plans. 

Ba&sh continues to be a brand that empowers their audience by providing beautiful wardrobe that meet all their life moments.
