Aritzia — the Canadian women’s fashion retailer known for its stylish basics, wardrobe staples, and popular items like the vegan leather Melina pants and The Cloud Puff jacket — has opened its new Somerset Collection location. The nearly 9,500-square-foot store carries goods from Levi’s, AGolde, and Citizens of Humanity as well as Artzia’s in-house brands Wilfred, Babaton, Tna, and Sunday Best. The shop also features the retailer’s second A-OK Cafe in the U.S.

Located on the second level on the Troy shopping center’s north side — next to Amazon 4-star and across from Hugo Boss — the recently opened Aritzia includes a mix of design elements. The shop, which has a 116-foot-long storefront and a 17-foot ceiling, features a cash desk made of Italian Deadlus marble, exposed brick walls and archways, custom-painted wall and ceiling murals, and halo-lit mirrors. Vintage furniture pieces from Brazil, Italy, Denmark, and France can also be found throughout the space.

Or, they can sign up for the store’s personalized styling and private shopping appointments. Those who work with Artizia’s style advisors will have access to a Private Shopping room.

The A-OK Cafe is a new coffee shop concept by the Canadian retailer. The shop features Irish green marble countertops, a coffee bar with custom brass accents, and banquette seating and tables.
