STOCKLISTS I LOPEZ MTL
For this season we are very excited to announce our first retailer, Lopez in Montreal.
We hosted our first popup in Montreal in August and Lopez helped out and showed support throughout the weekend. Every interaction with the people involved with this creative hub / retail shop was welcoming and genuine. This partnership was put together by the true nature of community support.
Lopez is a Lifestyle store founded in 2018. Rooted in streetwear, punk, and skate. Influenced by the diverse cultures of the neighborhood and the owners' own backgrounds. Taking nods from streetwear's rich history and the D.I.Y. punk spirit. Creating a unique, retail experience.
6725, rue Saint-Hubert
Gustavo Lopez, Denis Desforges, and Graeme Anthony share the same passion for streetwear and fashion. The three felt a need for change, and a desire to push themselves, and the idea of opening their own business came to be. Gustavo studied design at Concordia University, Denis gravitates in the punk rock musical universe as a musician while Graeme is a screen-printer. The combination of the expertise of each allied to their common knowledge of the retail trade will lead to the opening of the Lopez boutique.
We stopped by the shop during our last trip to Montreal and caught up with Graeme and Eddie. We caught up and talked about the dynamics of Montreal’s fashion streetwear scene and how it came to be. Eddie is a high school teacher and works at the shop, but he also has a skate brand Bug MTL. Bug is a brand that hones into counter-culture and cringe core by means of dynamic movements and influence on and off skateboards. We were shooting a quick look book and Eddie breaks out his board and rips it down Saint-Hubert Street and cracks a couple of flips in the store.

This shop is not only a retailer but a safe haven for these creatives to work together and be as they are. We are more than proud to be part of this community and have them represent our Relaxed Fit Collection.
