Simons Vision

The Life of Our Clothing in Numbers...

50% of what's in our wardrobes isn't worn1

Extending, the lifespan of a garment by as little as 9 months reduces its environmental impact by about 20 to 30%2

In Canada, every person throws away 37 kg of textile waste each year3

Buying a Second-Hand Garment:

- Uses fewer resources than producing a new piece

- Helps reduce the pollution linked to production and transportation

- Prevents adding clothing to a landfill

- Means choosing a tried-and-true garment that's weathered the seasons

- Adds unique pieces to your wardrobe

Vintage Designer Pieces

A selection of authentic, vintage clothes, bags, and accessories is now available at Simons. Each piece shines a light on the talent of major designers who have marked the last few decades, from Prada to Gianni Versace, Issey Miyake, and Hermès (among others).

In addition to providing you with utterly unique style, picking up a vintage piece is a meaningful, eco-friendly act, minimizing the use of new resources and reducing the pollution linked to production and transportation. Vintage purchases give a second life to pieces that have succeeded at traversing the seasons and always staying trendy.
