Montreal

Montreal is one of the trendiest cities in Canada. Upscale boutiques are located throughout the city, each recognized for carrying distinguished international and designer labels exclusive to their boutiques. We’ve rounded up some of the most unique stores for your new season shopping.

Maison Ogilvy – Holt Renfrew

1307 Sainte-Catherine

In 2019, two of Montreal’s high-end shopping institutions will join forces, to the delight of in-the-know fashionistas. For almost 200 years, the two iconic boutiques have been the perfect places to find elegant luxury brands such as Louis Vuitton, Chanel and renowned local designers. Our favorite: the Hr2 boutique, where you’ll find exclusive items offered nowhere else in the country. A little bonus: it’s literally steps away from the hotel, directly across the street. There is no reason to not go and seek out the perfect piece for fall.

Harricana

416 McGill

@harricanaparmariouche

Harricana is the place to go to discover eco-friendly local designer, Mariouche Gagné, who launched her first recycled fur collection in 1994. She has always had a deep respect for nature, so all the items, from the fur coats to the accessories, are made with recycled materials only.

Local Designers

Montreal is full of extremely talented local designers. Here are just a few must-visit fashion destinations:

Marie St-Pierre

2081 de la Montagne

@blus_calgary

Marie St-Pierre is a pillar of Montreal’s fashion. She is the first fashion designer to be inducted into the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts. Her style embraces graphic and linear effects, combining luxurious fabrics and state-of-the-art workmanship.

Henri Henri

189 Sainte-Catherine East

@melissamayafalkenberg

Henri Henri is a family business founded in 1932. It is the most renowned hattery in Canada. Fun fact: Between 1950 and 1970, when there were six NHL teams, Henri Henri rewarded players who had scored three goals or more in one game at the Montreal Forum with a free hat — thus bringing the expression “Hat Trick” into the world of hockey.

Arthur Bespoke

2165 Crescent

@arthurmontreal

Arthur Bespoke is the place to go for a totally tailor-made outfit. From knitwear to shirts and suits, it’s easy to find the perfect fit and style, with an exceptional amount of care paid to quality and detail. The owner insists that, “No detail is too small. We give the same attention to detail for an order of one shirt as we do to an order of 10 shirts. It makes us happy to do such good work.” If you need any more convincing to visit Arthur Bespoke, know this — they offer custom-made shoes, with your choice of linings, soles, heels and laces.
