Established in 2003 by Rami, Bassel and Firas Atallah, SSENSE is an online and brick and mortar shop based in Montreal, Canada.
It is known for its exclusive curated selection of over 400 designers for men and women, offering a collection of pieces from international runways and streetwear brands.
The company started online and decided then to open a physical location. The Montreal space is the pilot for the store concept designed in 2015 by David Chipperfield Architects.
The resulting project is an unconventional shop: customers can experience the space, meet, try on the goods they have preselected online, and participate in cultural programming related to fashion and art.
This international fashion platform currently serves 114 countries and operates in French, English, Japanese and Chinese.
