It’s always nice to be back in Mentreal. Ahem, Montreal. Style prevails no matter where you go. Boho chic on St. Denis to designer diva on Laurier to goth goddess on St. Laurent.
There are a few must-stops for fashionplates, when in la belle provence. The aforementioned Boulevard St. Laurent is home to a few fashion haunts including U&I – a mecca for interesting/avant-garde/edgy pieces.
On this visit, I got a chance to see Philip Lim’s zippy frock. Worth it’s weight.
While the zipper detail may be rock-starrish for some, Lim did a mellower version than Junya Watanabe did a few years back. I still think about that Watanabe skirt.
Lim also did a fringed tunic that I fell in love with. I would have photographed it, but then I’d have to see it on the blog on a regular basis. If we couldn’t be together, it was best to make a clean break.
Speaking of clean – Ms. Westwood did clean lines in a not-as-simple-as-you-think bias cut t-shirty dress. Made for curves, no?
C’est très chic – in any city.
