Notched + Tied have an affinity for the slower side of life- perfectly poached eggs, cured meat, raw denim, and disposable cameras. On a trip to Montreal last spring, the latter was used extensively, from the long winter drive up North, stopping at a wistful bar in New Hampshire, to the cities and streets of Canada. We recently developed the photos and found a wealth of gorgeous design, architecture, and an ensemble to share.
Before a smoked meat sandwich, the duo explored the city on foot, pausing at junctures brutalist and clean, modern and painted. Notched braces against the winter chill with a sapphire blue Burberry scarf atop a ¾ sleeve collaboration top from MOMA x Uniqlo screenprinted with Andy Warhol’s paratrooper boot design. The camel-colored peacoat is Ann Taylor, aviators, vintage Ray Bans. Graffiti unknown.
Explorers find the most curious places on foot and behind the wheel. We stumbled upon all sorts of gems: from Habitat 67, to abandoned steel mills and geisha strip clubs in the barren outskirts of the city. Notched and Tied always seem to end up in Canada when winter is still in town. There’s something magical about burrowing into a temporary home on the other side of the border.
