Montreal shop notes: 3 new addresses
Despite being a Canadian fashion veteran, Montreal designer Simon Chang (800-465-9203, simonchang.com) only began opening his own boutiques within the past couple of years. Locals can now head uptown to Centre Rockland (2305 Rockland Rd., 514-342-2872, centrerockland.com) to check out his ruffled and embellished pieces.
Owned by the same man behind Boutique Europa and Prfkt in Montreal’s World Trade Centre, Vault Par Europa (701 St-Pierre St., 514-849-2424) has unlocked its doors in the Quartier International. Shoppers can invest in high-end accessories by the likes of Roberto Cavalli, Tom Ford, Gucci and Marc Jacobs.
Deeper into the Old City, Cahier d’exercices (369 St-Paul St. W., 514-439-5169, cahierdexercices.com) is good news for those who mourned the closing of footwear emporium Mona Moore.
