I love suit shopping (bathing suits, that is) and this season men’s swimwear is making a splash in Montreal. Finally, the St-Tropez brand Vilebrequin (vilebrequin.com) has opened its first Canadian shop at Ogilvy (1307 Ste-Catherine St. W., 514-842-7711, ogilvycanada.com). Known for its bright and quirky prints, this label’s fans include Prince William and Hollywood royals like Leonardo DiCaprio, Jack Nicholson and Tom Cruise. Now, if only Vilebrequin would design swimwear for women.
