Boutique George & Jane

I was back in Montreal this weekend for the first time since I graduated (I forgot how cold it is in March) and I stumbled across a store I liked, called Boutique George & Jane. A nice boutique in a small, industrial-ish space, stocked with both men’s and women’s wear. Brands include Acne, Gant, Helmut Lang, Amanda Uprichard, American Retro, Bailey 44, and the Australian swimsuit line One Teaspoon which seemed to be all over Montreal. It’s pretty far north on St. Laurent, near Mile End, but definitely worth a visit. My only complaint? No mirror in the dressing rooms. I never understand that.

If you make it up there, its worth popping across the street to a cute boutique called Unicorn, which seems to be primarily focused on Quebecois designers such as: Mojito (knits), Eve Gravel, Nea (jewelry), and Valerie Dumaine. Also: Seychelles, RVCA, and Sessun.

I also went for a shopping trip in Westmount, which was pretty disappointing. All the stores seemed to be carrying the same brands and identical, tired silhouettes, like sack-y dresses with unnecessary belts. Nothing to recommend there.
