SHINE BRIGHT at Manulife Centre this Season


The sun is finally shining in Toronto and just as we are taking off our winter coats, our new, sparkling glass façade is coming out from under its hoarding. As our redevelopment comes to a close, over the coming months we’re shining a light on all of our incredible retailers – new and old – and sharing how you too can SHINE BRIGHT in this, the sunniest of seasons.

ULTRA VIOLET

It may have been Pantone’s Colour of the Year for 2018, but we’re still reaping the benefits of this bold hue this year. You’ll find this invigorating shade everywhere from Ron White to Petra Karthaus and in between. Whether you’re looking for the perfect gift for Mom or a statement look for an upcoming summer wedding, Manulife Centre has got you covered.

SO FRESH AND SO GREEN

If we had to assign a colour to this season, it would be green. If you take the time to notice, you’ll see that throughout Spring and Summer we’re surrounded by it, even in the city. This season, be sure to get outside to enjoy this iconic colour, rain or shine. Whether you’re out for a stroll or tending to your garden, a protective pair of sunglasses from Toronto Eye Care will be key.

ROSÉ ALL DAY

There’s nothing better than enjoying some leisurely outdoor time on a balcony or backyard, with some bright and cheerful tunes playing in the background and a glass of rosé – or an equally pink cocktail! – in hand. To make this warm weather vision a reality, a Sonos speaker from Bay Bloor Radio will set the tone, while Bloor Street Market and the LCBO will help you make the perfect at-home cocktail for your sipping pleasure. Not the DIY type? Head up to the 51st floor for cocktail hour at The One Eighty.

FEELIN’ BLUE

While we love the warmer weather, sometimes a retreating indoors to the AC is just what we need. Take a quiet moment away from the heat and sunshine by enjoying a cold can of crisp craft beer from the LCBO and set the mood with cool-toned interior accessories from Nirvana Home Collection. This me-time moment is the perfect time to pick up a good book or start a passion project, fuelled by a cool work light by Koncept Lighting, also from Nirvana.

 

DON’T FORGET…

We have a number of exciting new retailers coming your way this season! Over the Rainbow, Toronto’s iconic denim retailer, is opening their new Manulife Centre location on May 16th! Plus Pilot Coffee Roasters and Shopper’s Drug Mart are on their way as well. For more info about what new and exciting retailers you can expect, check out our previous blog post.
