Boul St-Laurent, Montréal, QC H2X 2V4, Canada

Establishing good taste on the lower Plateau since 1997, U&I was the first boutique in the city to sell accessible high fashion in a friendly atmosphere, and it still maintains pride of place among the new crop of designer stores it has inspired. The flagship unisex boutique on Boulevard Saint-Laurent now has an Old Montreal outpost, and carries Cydwoq shoes, Mackage and Canada Goose jackets and an amazing array of fragrances by Comme des Garçons. In terms of mid-season clothing, you’ll find goods by Young, Fabulous & Broke, Stella McCartney and Vivienne Westwood, among others. The staff will help you with a smile, contrary to many high-fashion emporia, and the sales rack is worth the visit every time.
