Zack Macklovitch and Nathan Gannage — otherwise known as Saintwoods — recently guested on HYPEBEAST Radio to discuss the label’s early Montreal upbringing, en route to expanding operations to its westward neighbors of Toronto. Making its return on the fashion front, the interdisciplinary collective recently unveiled its latest lookbook campaign titled, “SW.006.”
Lensed by Scott Pilgrim, the visual display takes viewers across a wide spectrum of landscapes — from a front stoop terrace and a cozy living room setting to a workplace studio and a building rooftop. The collection itself is comprised of a diverse 14-piece assortment, including branded hoodies, full-on tracksuits, tonal T-shirts and a cluster of accessory items, namely, pens, lighters and a corduroy cap. Standout looks from the offering include the white “Canadian Snacks” tee, the co-labeled Dickies workwear suit and the Chenille Patch sweatshirt.
The collection will make its debut at CONTRABAND’s Toronto and Vancouver locations via pop-up exhibits on June 29 and Saintwoods own Montreal installation on June 30. A wider release is slated for an online drop come July 2.
