Are you a fan of brands like Common Projects, Stone Island, Minimum or Stüssy? Did you know you can find them in Old Montreal?
Rooney, open since 2006, is an urban fashion boutique for men and women run by Alex Danino and his wife Michelle. Their goal was to offer unique and emerging brands their customers can wear every day.
Rest assured that every piece in the shop has been rigorously selected for their quality, cut, and trendiness. When you enter the shop you almost feel as if you’re in a museum of modern art, with its minimalist decor. Each article of clothing seems to have been strategically placed to the nearest millimeter.
Here are this season’s essentials
For men; Trouser style pants with elastic waistbands, satin padded coats or single-color shoes from laces to ankle.
For women; Try the ‘wide’ trousers, short shirts, white button down shirts or Adidas pastel shoe.
In addition to offering clothes that make you feel like the “coolest” person in the neighborhood, they sell a selection of candles, body products, books, magazines … and children’s shoes!
