A few years ago, I couldn’t help but notice that some of the city’s coolest club kids were all dressed in these edgy, innovative outfits. It was only a matter of time — and with a little help from my friend Stefan who knows just about every single person in Montréal — for me to finally meet the man behind all the hype.
His name is Travis Taddeo, and he designs for women “who don’t take shit.” His 2009 Fall/Winter Collection, called Disruptive Calm, is strong, fierce, powerful and sexy. Everything a woman should be!
“The line is renegade inspired. It was important for me to balance a girl’s edginess with her practicality.”
The result is a more wearable collection that brilliantly plays with leather and fur while experimenting with denim.
Curious? Check out his stuff at Three Monkeys in the Cours Mont-Royal shopping centre or Boutique FLY on Ste-Catherine Street.
And, if your Montréal getaway is so exciting that you just don’t have time to stop by those stores, visit www.chiccane.com
