Urban streetwear has created a subculture among young adults in this current generation.It’s effect in 2017 had people waiting in lines, purchasing raffle tickets and trading sentimental items for exclusive “gems.” Brands like Supreme, Bape, and Off White have always reigned superior in this particular department and show no signs of slowing down for the upcoming year. Cities like New York and Toronto have always kept their reputations for having the most desired pieces due to the number of stores that had the particular products. Ottawa, on the other hand, had very limited ways of achieving this type of luxury… UNTIL NOW.

Unavailshop is the first of its kind in the Capital City. As posted on their website, “Unavailshop is Canada's first and largest online consignment marketplace. Unavailshop was started to offer peace of mind and convenience with a goal to offer a consignment marketplace where Canadian buyers can purchase items without the fear of exchange rates and import fees. All prices are in Canadian Dollars and all items ship from within Canada!”

This store upholds a special reputation for having the rarest pieces in streetwear. You can find all the top brands for a reasonable price, especially accounting for the limited supply that is offered worldwide. There is no doubt that people in the Ottawa are going crazy for their products, they’ve introduced an outlet for streetwear to thrive in a place with little accessibility.

An item that really caught MY attention was the Supreme Brooklyn Box Logo Tee. On the day of its release, people surrounded Supreme’s store in Brooklyn, NY to get their hands on this exclusive piece. The fact that this type of exclusivity is found in Ottawa really shows how invested the staff is in exposing streetwear and making it available to the general public.
