Bernstein & Gold boasts some of the most desirable designer labels for women available in Victoria. The boutique is the only place in the city you can find Vivienne Westwood, Yumi Kim, Milly, Lauren Moffatt and Mike and Chris. The boutique also sells casual pieces by London’s Ted Baker and premium denim by Paige and 7 For All Mankind. Complete an outfit by picking up a pair of French-style shoes by Pour La Victoire or dance-inspired flats by Bloch. Add a clutch or wallet by Hobo International or a purse by Italian Linea Pelle. And for those who like to accessorize, there’s an excellent selection of sought-after semi-precious and precious jewelry by the likes of San Francisco’s Jeanine Payer (who hand-engraves poetry on her pieces), Sex and the City designer Alexis Battar and organics-inspired River Song from Seattle.
Seductive Spa Services
Bernstein & Gold successfully combines two of women’s favourite pastimes: shopping and visiting the spa. In the back of the boutique, there’s a luxurious sanctuary where you can indulge in a tantalizing treatment. Manicures, pedicures, facials, waxings and eyelash treatments are all available. There are also treatments tailored to men — what better way to get your guy to patiently wait while you’re shopping? The spa uses and sells bath and beauty products exclusively by French companies Fresh, Côté Bastide and Talika. To recreate the spa vibe at home, you can also purchase hand-sewn Turkish cotton towels, bathrobes and pajamas by Talesma.
Bernstein & Gold makes its home in a luxurious, but simple setting. It’s clean and beautiful — the perfect backdrop for beautiful things. The boutique boasts high ceilings, white walls and attractive white shelving and cabinetry that looks like it was borrowed from a Hamptons summer home. With modern home accessories also for sale, it’s easy to create your very own haven!
