|Vancouver Is Awesome is a proud sponsor of thisopenspace.ca, an online platform for booking unique spaces for pop-up shops, exhibits, and events. They’ve hosted hundreds of pop-up concepts in Vancouver neighbourhoods since September 2012. Every time a new pop-up is about to launch @thisopenspace, you’ll catch a sneak peek here on V.I.A.!|
Zii Ropa and Acuarela Swimwear have arrived direct from Baja California Sur to share the sun stained vision of summer with sporty, style conscious women in Vancouver June 19-21. These two beach brands launch their original designs with a pop-up shop opening tonight in Chinatown. We make the turn to summer in two days! Get a head start and shop the pop-up this weekend.
Vancouver natives, Lindsay and Bridget unpack stylish swimwear alongside relaxed fit womenswear at #elpopup opening in Chinatown tonight. Expect to see pieces you can throw on the porch, hang to dry in the fading sun or toss into your weekend bag, no fuss. Zii Ropa garments are hand sewn by local tailors in Mexico using natural fibre textiles. Acuarela produces custom, limited edition bikinis which just happen to pair seamlessly with the draped garments – these designers share a vision. They’re making factory-free, hand-crafted small collections that can be loved and used for many seasons. With socially responsible production their community wears these lines naturally and in the Baja area they’re known for inspiring women to dress for comfort, confidence and that lets-go-surfing spirit. Jump on board with #elpopup this weekend, Jun 19-21 and see you at the opening party tonight, June 19 from 5PM – 9PM at 434 Columbia St. Soak in the vibes direct from Baja and check the shop hours here.
