CM was one of the first fashion chains to recognise the elegance of Japanese lines and simple, patternless colour. And its outstanding pricing made it an international star. Designs are wearable and affordable: buy a pair of jeans and a ribbed turtleneck and you'll have them for more than a season - and neither will you suffer embarrassing out-of-fashion stigma. Sale items are ubiquitous. This Bloor Street flagship, in a Greek Revival heritage building, has the best pedigree and selection.
