After years of virtual shopping, Montrealers can now look forward to visiting one of our cities proudest fashion sources live in living color. SSENSE (pronounced Essence) will open doors to their first retail space days before the city rings in the New Year. Yes Montreal, this means that all of the luxury we've been drooling over online can now be physically touched, stroked, pet, tried on, and most importantly..purchased without the click of your mouse. The online boutique has long been known to carry a heavy duty line up of avant garde designers and ready to wear apparel. Maison Martin Margiela, Sass&Bide, Alexander Wang, Helmut Lang, McQueen, Givenchy, DVF, and Christopher Kane are just a few that top the retailers heart throbbing roster. For those familiar with Montreal shopping, picture this: Holt's 2nd and 3rd floor, meet TNT blu, meet a blown up version of Reborn, all piled into two levels of modern lofty goodness in the heart of our beautiful Old Port. Your result? SSENSE Boutique. To better understand our excitement, browse the online shop at www.ssense.com. Bon magazinage Montreal!
