Miss Cocotte | Exodus

Whether you have been to a Montreal fashion related event, or you know your way around some of the hippest places to shop in the city, there is a possibility that you have seen the works of Miss Cocotte. 

Known for her use of metal and leatherwork, Josée Gagnon has stirred quite a following with her line of edgy and industrial jewelry made for those searching for just the right amount of punch to stand out of a crowd. Handcrafted and made to order, Miss Cocotte designs range from rings and earrings, to elaborate necklaces and custom confections for those who can imagine slightly outside the (jewelry) box. 

Spring 2014 brings EXODUS, which implements arrowhead motifs playing around new mediums including fringe play. D-CONSTRUCT has a few images from the EXODUS lookbook played out in Montreal's own Huis Clos Bar, giving this shoot a real underground mood.
