In Montreal, we know about cold. Mackage coats and accessories are now sold throughout the world in stores including Saks Fifth Avenue, but the brand’s birthplace is visible in every design. The brainchild of designers Eran Elfassy and Elisa Dahan came about because they believed fine style should extend to every layer of clothing, even the puffer jackets we have to wear here half the year. The duo has refined winter wear by creating luxe takes on the typical parka, as well as coverings for every other type of mid-season weather, from leather to fine wool. Their signature is the combination of textures, like a long wool felt jacket with leather sleeves: the perfect marriage of form and function. Find their wares in a variety of choice Montreal boutiques, including U&I.
