Cuir de vachette

imageToday I’m going to return to a theme that I set aside for the past couple of months – some recommendations for what you might enjoy in the lovely city of Quebec. m0851 is a store whose simple, industrial-chic interiors echo the refined beauty of their products.

imageLocated in the Petit Champlain neighborhood, the shop is at 66 boulevard Champlain, just a couple of doors down from Shâmane. I was in search of a high quality belt, which, sadly, they did not have. They did, however, have meltingly supple leather jackets and bags in the most scrumptious colors, including a rich berry shade. Other chic accessories include cloud-like scarves, perfect for warding off an autumnal chill.

imageEverything is made in their ateliers in Montreal from top quality leathers like cuir de vachette (kweer duh vashet) or calfskin. The company has been around since 1987 and has twenty-two boutiques around the world. They also sell on-line, if you’re looking to add something special to your fall wardrobe. Go on, you’ve been very good.
