When big-name celebrities come to Toronto, most people expect to find them in Yorkville. Head a little farther north however, and you might catch a glimpse of the likes of Angela Bassett or Johnny Depp. Both actors have been known to show up at Act Two in search of hard-to-find, high-end clothing at reduced prices.
Couture and Casual
Since day one, Armani (for both men and women) has proven the most popular designer at Act Two. You’ll also find casual and elegant evening wear from Hugo Boss, Valentino, Oscar de la Renta, Chanel, Burberry and Commes des Garcons. The store stocks accessories and shoes to complement any outfit. Jimmy Choo heels are frequently available, as are hats, scarves and gloves from Fendi, Pucci and Yves St Laurent. Crocodile skin clutches come from Prada, Gucci, and Dolce & Gabbana.
Better Than the First Act
While the majority of clothing is in excellent vintage condition, Act Two often acquires brand new old stock. Be advised – these pieces go quickly. The boutique has a solid base of loyal customers who check in regularly, so you must be vigilant if you want to score the cream of the shop’s latest crop. Equally sought after? A selection of quality coats that mix vintage and new furs.
