LOOKCITY: On Vincent Park, Local Looks, And Playing Dress Up For The Olympics
by Jenny Bachynski | What colour are you?
Check out Red Flag Designs, an amazing local company that takes salvaged and re-purposed sails to create their products. Each piece is designed and crafted with care in Vancouver.
Love watches as much as you dig helping out the environment? Check out WeWood - an awesome California-based company that specializes in watches made from scrap wood. The Date Beige would make a great gift.
“Back to school” (or back to the office) is approaching faster than any of us want. The upside is we have a good excuse to shop for new Fall bags. An Ashley Watson Finch, Erin Templeton Card Case, Ora Billy Backpack, or anything by Herschel will do just fine.
What colour are you?
Want to show off your Canadian pride during the Olympics but don’t want to be plastered head-to-toe in maple leaves? Try a subtle Hudson’s Bay stripe-inspired outfit.
Abercrombie & Fitch never cease to amaze with their marketing decisions.
Check out some local looks after the jump…
