Alberta’s first Aesop store arrived at CF Chinook Centre in May. The Australian brand is more than 30 years old and is known for its upscale skin, body and hair products. The shop carries hand wash, travel kits, facial cleansers and oils, shampoo and conditioner, toothpaste, deodorant, room spray and more. No two Aesop stores look exactly the same, but they all share the same striking, minimalist aesthetic.

Bailey Nelson, an Australian eyewear brand that first launched in 2012, opened its third Calgary location in CF Market Mall in the fall.

You can’t go wrong with the price either, with glasses starting at $145 to $245 depending on the frame material. The Market Mall location, like all Bailey Nelson stores, offers eye exams with its in-store optometrist, which means you can go through your eyewear journey from start to finish in one place.
