Shopping Diary: May 2009

CANALI A new Canali stand-alone boutique opens in early May at Harry Rosen in Pacific Centre. The 1,500-square-foot space will feature polished cream marble floors, mahogany wood finishes, leather-clad fitting rooms (how risqué), and black-glass dividing walls with floating shelves to showcase the exquisitely tailored Italian goods.

700 W. Georgia St., 604-683-6861.
