What's New Chez Vous, Unicorn Boutique?

Posted by Risa / April 6, 2012

Unicorn Boutique has become high on my list of local places to rest my weary eyes, touch soft fabrics, be inspired by independent design and leave with exceptional basics and original jewelry in the $50-$150 price range. The clothes are girly but often in a monochromatic, blacks, whites and greys way; chic with subtle unconventional twists, reflective of a taste that somehow manages a balance between exuberance and minimalism. This is a balance I need to learn more about, so I went to the source and posed my favorite questions to co-owner Amelie Thellen.

"Melanie Robillard and myself are the two owners of the store. We opened Unicorn on Sept 2008. We have been working in the fashion industry since we could start working, so, 16 years old! I have a bachelor degree from UQAM in Fashion Management and Melanie studied in Haute Couture in Ottawa. We both love travelling, black & white and finding vintage furniture.

Our shop UNICORN is a cute boutique for smart looking women with a hand-picked selection of international, national and local designer brands with a round-up of the very best accessories from here and abroad."

So...What's new chez vous?

Well, recently we updated our online shop with our spring/summer 2012 collections www.boutiqueunicorn.com

We are receiving new stock every weeks these days.

We have a trunk show coming up with Rose&Ruby, This Ilk and Josiane Perron on April 26th to 29th.

Local love bonus questions of love! Most memorable meal you've had recently Montreal? Most successful recent clothing shopping experience? Who else should we feature?

Meal: We often start our day at Fabergé on Fairmount. Its near the store and we love their breakfast menu. Every breakfast there with my business partner Melanie is memorable! :) We also like happy hours at La Buvette chez Simone...

Shopping: We get everything for our ownselves from Unicorn or when we travel. Though, the other day I was very excited to see that Héritage is carrying Malin+Goetz products. Ill have to go visit them to buy the rum body wash. It smells so good!

Who else: Bruxe General Store in NDG. We love these boys!
