December 20, 2011 – A newcomer to Montréal’s upscale shopping scene, Une île en Amérique brings together leading Québecois and Canadian designers under one roof. Showcased by immense display windows and minimalist décor, the creations of more than 30 women’s clothing and accessory designers grace one of Montréal’s most prestigious fashion avenues, Laurier Avenue West.
Elegant and welcoming, the boutique features items that have been handpicked by the extremely passionate owner, Isabelle Brais. Not only must each piece be designed and made here, it must be of the highest quality and an exceptional design in order to make the cut. Only the best of the best is available at Une île en Amérique.
That said, it isn’t surprising to find the sublime designs of the renowned Marie Saint Pierre, Nadya Toto and Denis Gagnon here. Furthermore, exquisite leather handbags from Annick Lévesque and Fullum & Holt nestle beside the captivating architectural jewellery of Montréal designer, Nadia Petrova Topuzanov in the display case.
And it’s not just high-end fashion on display in this boutique; in fact, a marvellous mix of different genres from talented Québecois and Canadian artists is featured, too. On the wall, the powerful photography of Pierre Drouin combines with the excessively urban furniture designs of Janie Belcourt, all crowned by a striking overhead light fixture from none other than Molo Design; what’s more, customers can recreate this outstanding décor at home, with all the stunning artwork and decorative objects that accentuate this chic space.
A genuine tribute to local creative genius, Une île en Amérique has become the place for upscale women’s fashion – and more! – in Montréal.
