THE BRAND

A series of timeless pieces inspired by minimal and androgynous aesthetic, interpreting an effortless mixture of streetwear edginess and sophistication.

Based in Montreal, Canada,KQK is an urban Canadian fashion label known for its fusion of classic tailoring and high-end streetwear. An avid lover of music and travel, founder and designer Karen Quirion captures the independent spirit and willpower of the modern woman. Inspired by the brutalist architectural movement, Quirion constantly redefines her craft through the deconstruction of shapes and the experimentation of colors and material. As a result, the garments are not merely an end-product – they epitomize a meticulous thought process that reinterprets the conventional division of space.
