Holt Renfrew goes 2.0
The new window displays outside Montreal's Holt Renfrew on Sherbrooke between Drummond and De la Montagne stopped me in my tracks the other day.
We love Bryan Boy? We love Garance Dore, Tommy Ton and Jane Aldridge? Wait a second... Those aren't designer names... those are all high profile fashion photog/bloggers!
So Holt Renfrew has gone Web 2.0 and each of their windows this season (across the country, I believe) is dedicated to 6 influential fashion bloggers, two of them being Canada's own Anita Clarke of I want I got (iwantigot.geekigirl.com) and Tommy Ton of Jak and Jil blog (jakandjil.com). Others are Bryan Boy (bryanboy.com); Scott Schuman of The Sartorialist (thesartorialist.blogspot.com); Jane Aldridge of Sea of Shoes -who happens to be 17! (seaofshoes.typepad.com); and my personal favourite - humble and well-written french fashion photographer Garance Dore (garancedore.fr/en).
Go by and see them for yourselves! I was so mesmerized by the literal sea of shoes that I forgot to photograph them! The Sartorialist and I want I got windows weren't finished so I'll see if I can capture them later this week.
You can read the press release here.
Ooh, just go this great panoramic photo of I want I got from T.O's Holt's, courtesy of @photojunkie on twitter.
