Leone is widely recognized as one of the top independent and high fashion stores in North America…and it’s easy to see why. Housed downtown in the beautiful and historic Sinclair Centre, Leone invites visitors to explore its 25,000 square feet of exquisite retail space. Leone carries men’s and women’s fashions by top designers such as Yves Saint Laurent, Versace, Prada, Dior, Paul Smith, Burberry, Dolce & Gabbana and many more.
Free valet parking & cappuccino!
The unique layout of the store (separate rooms dedicated to each designer creates the impression of individual boutiques) is reminiscent of charming Italian streets. There’s even a cappuccino bar, for that much needed caffeine kick to fuel more shopping.
Leone is the choice shop of visiting and local celebrities. A series of framed photos documents all the stars that have stopped by for some retail therapy. Big names include Ozzy and Kelly Osbourne, Sarah Michelle Gellar and Kirstie Alley. Classic Canadian crooners Céline Dion and Brian Adams have also posed for snapshots.
Personal shoppers are available and private after-hours perusing can be done by appointment. International shoppers are made to feel at home, with multilingual staff (languages spoken include Japanese, Mandarin, Cantonese, German, French, Tagalog, Italian, Spanish, Russian and Korean), and expedited alterations to ensure purchases are the perfect fit before jetsetters leave the city. Valet parking, purchase delivery and complimentary gift-wrapping make your shopping experience seamless.
Note: Try the children’s Burberry section of the store; cute high fashion.
