[FIRST LOOK] #PINASTYLES STRAIGHT FROM UCLUELET PRINTMAKERS POP-UP ON WEST 4TH THIS MONTH

[FIRST LOOK] is where we introduce a new pop-up for the very first time. It's now in our Upcoming calendar and should be in yours too.

Who ever thought a pineapple could inspire an entire fashion line? Well, Angie Roussin starter upper living off the west coast of Vancouver Island had the vision. Roussin founded the brand Piña (Spanish for 'pineapple') in 2007 out of a love for printmaking (and pineapples). With one adorable hide-away boutique in the community of Ucluelet and a small team of printmakers, Roussin has created a niche. This week she's brought the shop to Vancouver. #PinaStyles does digital prints and silkscreens onto American Apparel and locally made, Jeni Mack bamboo garments. At the pop-up in Kits this week they're stocked with printed clothes for little ones 0-3 months, XXL hoodies and everything in between. Be sure to hop this pineapple express, only in town for one week at 1927 W. 4th Ave. before it's back to the Island. See shop hours here.
