We asked Diane a few fun questions...

 

1.     WHY DO YOU LIKE SHOPPING VINTAGE CLOTHING? I love mixing vintage clothing with something new. A lot of my first vintage pieces were my mother’s from when she travelled the world, and it really made me feel more connected to her and to different cultures when I was growing up.

2.     CATS OR DOGS?  Sadly neither, I’m allergic to everything cute and fluffy :(

3.     WHO WAS YOUR FAVORITE SPICE GIRL? Posh Spice and Sporty Spice.

4.     DENIM OR LEATHER? Denim! I’m obsessed with unconventional denim clothing these days. Love the American brand sixty-nine.us and Oak + Fort.

5.      IF YOU COULD HAVE THREE FAMOUS PEOPLE AT YOUR DINNER PARTY, WHO WOULD THEY BE? Snoop Dog, Martha Stewart and Paris Hilton. I feel like all three of them are super chill and will give me great life advice

Spilt Milk + Opening Party = Fun Times!

Citizen Vintage

Citizen Vintage has just opened a second store in the Plateau (yayyyyyyy!!!) 

Come celebrate this momentous occasion at our opening party on Thursday June 22nd! We will also be unveiling our newest collaboration with SpiltMilk MTL

We have a few fun surprises up our sleeves that we'll be revealing in the coming weeks! 

Alice Zhang, the artist behind SpiltMilk MTL is a Montreal based illustrator/ graphic designer who would like to pretend she is a #badassbitch when in reality she may be better defined as #basic? Lastly, she is not ashamed to admit that she frequently hosts solo dance parties to horrible 90's music (more specifically SClub7).

"Black slides are a summer staple."

"I prefer a white tank that’s not fitted-but also not too loose, somewhere in between and you can wear it with almost everything (layer, tuck it in, etc.)"

A Second Shop!

Citizen Vintage

We are so excited (...and exhausted) about the opening of our second Citizen Vintage location at 4059 St-Laurent. A second location had been on our minds for some time. With a combination of luck and timing, we found this amazing spot, and just had to go for it. 

We would like to thank our incredible employees for all of their help in getting the shop ready for this weeks official opening.

Please come by and say hello!

A Chat With Cat Morin and Meghan Gagliardi: Mays Artist Of The Month

Citizen Vintage

Capillaries is Meghan and Cat’s latest publication in their collaborative book series.

Featuring a collection of poems written by Meghan, capillaries maps the lifecycle of intimacy: how it shapes our evolution, while forcing cracks and fissures in our intuition. Landscape renderings, generated and adapted by Cat, outline the precipitous nature of these cycles.

About the artists:
Meghan writes poetry about memory and ecologies of and between bodies. She studies feminist geography and works on the collaborative and collective transformation of the university towards inclusion, representation, and visibility. Read more of her work atcargocollective.com/meghangagliardi.

Cat is a multidisciplinary artist currently concentrating on illustration, animation, and zine printing. See more of her work at cargocollective.com/catmorin.
 

Both artists are inspired by bodies and landscapes. These entities are deeply political and represent more than a metaphor; understanding this, the artists would like to acknowledge that the space housing their installation is located on unceded Kanien'kehá:ka territory.
