Montréal designers embrace fall colours

Janine Hopkinson

Janine Hopkinson moved to Montréal 25 years ago and has been in love with the city ever since. She mostly works, writes and hangs out in Mile End, and credits all her best ideas to her daily hikes in Mount Royal Park.

Montréal designers have drawn from autumn’s spectacular palette, infusing their collections with rich, vibrant hues and sumptuous textures. Check out our favourites to add a touch of fall to your wardrobe!

Meemoza

Driven by its values of mindfulness, sustainability and creativity, Meemoza offers simply tailored pieces, carefully crafted in Montréal. Toasty browns, warm woolens and inspired-by nature prints in reclaimed and sustainable fabrics are the highlights of Meemoza’s fall collection. We especially love the Salander sweater in Pumpkin hemp and the Harvard Blouse in the Orange Lotus print.

Birds of North America

Proudly and ethically made in Montréal’s garment district, Birds of North America collections are known for their bold, colourful prints and flattering-on-every-body cuts. This fall, saffron, burnt orange and warm mahogany contrast beautifully with steel blue and gold in dresses and tops. A brand favorite is the Cresentchest jearsey top, offered this fall in a warm botanical print.

Annie 50

The Annie 50 signature style is retro-inspired with a modern, sustainable sensibility. Annie 50 is known and loved for its simple, tailored dresses and dress up/dress down jumpsuits. This fall, we can’t get enough of its relaxed, flowy Amelie kimono in a delicate floral print—perfect for working from home and for stepping out.

Jennifer Glasgow Design

Jennifer Glasgow Design is focused on creating ecologically thoughtful womenswear for multifaceted and discerning women. This season, the brand is featuring made in Montréal dresses and separates with colour blocked accents in teal, mustard and fuchsia, which adds a graphic punch to the swingy ease of the Braxton dress and the elevated Route 66 tee.

Eve Gravel

Founded by Montréal fashion pioneer Eve Gravel, this namesake brand is beloved for its original prints created in collaboration with Montréal artists. This fall, luxe jacquards mix with arty hand drawn prints and tonal plaids. Our faves include the versatile Lullaby dress worn over pants, and the Caravan top in the bold mustard Klimt print.

Eve Gravel is available online.

Cokluch

Another local favorite, Cokluch, includes exclusive made in Montréal fabrics in its collections. This fall, the brand’s textured, slouchy separates in cinnamon, amaretto, teal and navy layer beautifully. The Verseau tunic stands out with its modern pleating, while the soft Orion pullover pairs beautifully with the slouchy Autel trouser. For the stylish little ones in your life, check out the Cokluch-mini collection—the retro-modern Flèche top is one of our favorites.

Melow

Inspired by the textures and tones of sophisticated ‘80s suiting, the made in Montréal at Melow is bold, textured and modern. Shades of olive, prune and toffee have been given a modern makeover in houndstooth, satin and matelassé fabrics. This fall, we fell for the brand’s flashback stretchy miniskirt in olive, and the ultra-flattering Wolf dress with its nipped waist and intricate tucking in autumn shades of lichen and ochre.

Desloups

Montréal fashion lovers know that you can never have too many coats. Local creators Desloups offer warm, wool styles with classic, military-inspired cuts. Bundle up in the double breasted oversized jacket in red, or the cozy long coat in Nordic blue. A thoughtful bonus for those who’ll have a little one on board this winter: Desloups sells matching maternity panels for all its models.

Visit the Desloups boutique-atelier on Saint-Denis Street or online.
