Editorial: Urban Beach Dream at Village au Pied-du-Courant

If you haven’t been to Village au Pied-du-Courant, know that you have been missing out. I mean, really. This little oasis of a paradise was built under the Jacques-Cartier bride, offering a hub for local culture (amazing DJ, concerts, food trucks, fashion, arts, market, projections), with a fiery activity schedule four days a week, all until September 12th. The best ? You or your friends could contribute to the programming, if you have something to offer (just, know you, reach out and do it). The village is also the perfect spot to share a drinks with friends, dance, watch fireworks, read a book, hang out with your Mom (hi Mom!), meet your tinder date and do everything that is good-temperature worthy in the best ambiance, feet in the sand without paying a cover. Isn’t it sweet ?

We made the most of the exquisite site to shoot an impromptu summer editorial, check out the photography work of Brenton Barrow featuring as an awkward model. Acknowledging the wood work for casting such a great decor, what screams summer more than wide leg pants, gold jewelry, spaghetti straps top, a turban scarf and bike break marks on your kimono-inspired lightweight cardigan ? Village life, it is.
