June Swimwear x Cantoro x Simons

14 June 2017

Fashion and art often go hand in hand, and this collaboration is no exception. June Swimwear x Jason Cantoro is the work of two Canadian creators who combined their expertise to produce a swimwear collection that's available exclusively at Simons.

When the Simons team approached June Swimwear with the idea of creating a collection, Julie Morin-Dumais, the Quebec brand’s founder immediately thought of asking Montreal artist Jason Cantoro to join the project, knowing that Simons’ values are driven by a sincere passion for the arts.  

“The collection designed by June Swimwear, a young local company, and Cantoro is marked by a mutual passion for art and a joie de vivre that touched us. It fits in perfectly with our philosophy,” said Peter Simons, Simons’ CEO. 

Jason explained to the Simons team that Lightbright is part of his series called “Ghost.”

In some of our store locations, you’ll find these surfboards that were specially designed for the collection by Martin Guay from Guava Surfboards (another one of Julie’s good friends!). To admire them in person, visit our Simons stores located in Place Ste-Foy, Old Quebec, Promenades St-Bruno, Carrefour Laval, Galeries d’Anjou, Square One in Mississauga, West Edmonton Mall, and Park Royal South in West Vancouver.
