STORE OF THE MONTH: IBIKI / MONTRÉAL

It sounds a little like Jonah Leslie, the owner of Montréal-based ibiki, kind of slowly grew into running a store that is never ‘finished’. And maybe those are the best stores anyway, that reflect the obsessions and whims of its owner as they change over time. Anyway, ibiki is a fine store that stocks a range of fine fashion such as Comme des Garçons or Études next to fine printed matter such as Pin-Up or, erm, mono.kultur, yes. But they also run an open studio and use the store, windows and website as a platform for new work by their friends or themselves,which is where the lines between selling and buying, between taking and giving, are beginning to blur in a very contemporary way. And oh, they even harvest their own beehive on the studio rooftop, resulting in, right, ibiki honey.
