[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.

Bringing the spirit of sun stained Baja to Vancouver, native west coast gals Lindsay and Bridget unpack stylish swimwear alongside relaxed fit womenswear mid June with #elpopup in Chinatown. Zii Ropa and Acuarela Swimwear arrive Friday June 19th for one weekend to share the Baja vision with sporty, style conscious women keen for that new summer piece. That piece you can throw on the porch to dry in the fading sun or toss into your weekend bag, no fuss.

The Baja culture saturates these charming brands. 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. Factory-free, hand-crafted small collections that can be loved and used for many seasons, that's the main idea. With socially responsible production their community of like minded, out-there sisters rock the brand naturally. Jump on board and experience #elpopup this month with an opening party June 19th, 5PM - 9PM at 434 Columbia St. Soak in the vibes direct from Baja and check the shop hours here.
