The pride Sokoloff Lingerie feels towards Montreal is inexplicable. Over the past four years, we met so many inspiring artists and entrepreneurs that it quickly became part of our mission to share with you the talents that come from our very own city. These countless and memorable meetings are what formed the Sokoloff identity that is so dear to us. We strongly believe that the passion and constant share of ideas between artists is what allows the Montreal art scene to flourish and gain worldwide fame.
On this note, we proudly present to you our new collaboration with Andy, travel guru and adventurer from Giandy on the Road!

What is the Giandy on the Road Project?
Giandy on the Road, is first of all a couple project. My boyfriend and I are rebuilding an old Airstream 1985, and are planning to discover America. On the road, we hope to reconnect with nature and we look forward to meet all kind of spirits : artists, entrepreneurs, shamans, musicians, or whoever has a passion that puts sparkles in their eyes. Our plan is to share our kitchen with them, to trade a culinar experience for a local recommendation, in order to learn from them the crucial adresses of their hometown. After each of these meetings, we will build an itinerary for each of the states we visited, with aquarel illustrations and pictures that we collected among the way. In fact, Giandy on the Road will share unique experiences, enriching discoveries, and inspiring people.
