José Manuel St-Jacques and Simon Bélanger (winner of the first-ever White Cashmere Collection Student Competition in 2006), have been racking up fashion accolades ever since meeting in an electro/rock club nearly 10 years ago. Most recently, their UNTTLD collection, a luxury women’s line known for its spare chic and timeless elegance, won them CAFA’s (Canadian Arts & Fashion Awards) 2016 Emerging Talent Award. Partners in life as well as fashion, these Montréalers boast an impressive array of advanced design degrees, including Bélanger’s Masters from the Domus Academy in Milan.
