The first weekend of Mural Fest was a great success: the art, the food, the music, and of course the Montreal streetwear!
Every year on St-Laurent, Mural introduces me to my new favourite Montreal streetwear brand.
This year was no different. Except I might have more than one this time.
Le Cartel Clothing was there last year, and it was a pleasure to see their pop-up merch tent yet again. These talented guys make art and silk-screen it, in Montreal, on comfy tees as well as other wearable mediums. This Mural Fest, they have an exclusive collab with @crayonpapier, called SPACE ODYSSEY….because who wouldn’t want to wear a space shirt!
A new merch tent on The Main this year was LoClasse, and I was loving what they were offering.
@xnuroman will be available this weekend at the @loclassemtl popup tent during @muralfestival! • • • • • • • • #street #streetphotography #vscophotography #highsnobiety #uoonyou #hypebeast #mkexplore #estheticlabel #Montreal #peoplescreatives #featurepalette #visualsoflife #shoot2kill #MontrealPhotography #MtlMoments #fm2mag #artsofvisuals #500px #hsdailyfeature #streetdreamsmag #thecreatorclass #vsco #visualambassadors #postthepeople #ftmedd #like4like #wlyg #ootd
Themselves local artists, they’ve developed an art and entertainment agency to promote other local brands and local artists. Some treasures I fell for in that tent included that powder blue PURELUCKX camp counselor cap, the minimal cool Class of Creators hoodie and all the just-too-perfect vintage picks of Closet Boutique. Take a look at LoClasse.com and their instagram to get a feel of Montreal’s artists and designers who will definitely be taking their city by storm by the end of Mural Fest.
Last but not least, I stumbled upon the wonderful world of ARTGANG. With two gallery-boutiques they have some of the best art I’ve seen in Montreal but I took a serious delight to the in-your-face ROYALTEES and the FAKE BRAND merch. Something about so bluntly taking the logo from high-end brands and modifying it or simply turning it over is so amusing to me. ArtGang also introduced me to an effortlessly cool collection called Boro.
See you there!
