Our shop staff picked out their favourite pieces from Givenchy's Spring collection for a quick shoot. In classic Givenchy fashion they went with a mixture of camouflage and vibrant prints, which stand out when paired with black pants and accessories. Look for more Spring/Summer 2014 arrivals from the storied Parisian label very soon here at Roden Gray.
Just in time for the blazing summer sun comes Sun Buddies, a premium eyewear label from Swedish fashion retailer Très Bien. Three types of handcrafted frames, inspired by art and pop culture, come in a variety of colours with UV protected lenses by Carl Zeiss Vision®. Simple and classic, each style sports a smooth finish and timeless details. Check out a sneak peek here (shot by Sun Buddies friend Bela Borsodi), but be sure to stay tuned because Sun Buddies will be available in-store and online very soon!
With the weather warming up its time to start thinking about summer wardrobes. Prints are always a nice way to add a little bit of life to an outfit, we've picked a few of our favourites from brands like Saturday's Surf NYC and Alex Mill above.
UPDATE - April 10: Use discount code S14-SHOP-HOP at checkout to redeem the 20% off. Offer expires tonight at 11:59 PM PDT and is not valid with other discount codes.
This Thursday marks another installment of the biannual Gastown Shop Hop where local shops and restaurants get together to celebrate our neighbourhood. We're joining in the festivities with a special one night only discount of 20% on all Spring/Summer 2014 items. We're staying open late too (until 9:00 PM), so you can nosh on scotch eggs at Pourhouse or swig a Tequila Martinez at The Diamond and still make it down to the shop to grab that jacket you've had your eye on.
We wouldn't advise waiting too late though, since we'll be announcing a discount code for 20% off on Thursday morning (Vancouver time) that you can use online for the same savings — we offer in-store pick-up for online orders by the way — so stay tuned and sign up for our newsletter to get the code first!
We've known Chad Falkenberg and Kelly Reynolds for a while now and we think they're great. Chad and Kelly are the brains behind Falken Reynolds Interiors, a client-forward interior design studio based just around the block from us in Gastown.
If you visited our shop during the holiday season you couldn't have missed the beautiful, arboreal lights that seemed to sprout from the store itself. The piece was crafted by Falken Reynolds as part of their "Decorate Gastown" series of custom installations, an annual holiday exercise that's graced restaurants and shops likeSix Acres,LYNNsteven Boutique, and Sea Monstr Sushi.
We're excited to have had the opportunity to sit down with Chad and Kelly for the launch of our new interview series directed at shining a light on local designers, artists, and entrepreneurs that we think represent what makes Vancouver, and specifically Gastown such a fantastic place to live and work.
Monocle Business recently sat down with Roden Gray partner Ken Wai for this look at Vancouver's burgeoning men's fashion market. The piece features interviews with Davidson Manaloto and Craig Atkinson of wings + horns as well as David Lin from our neighbours, Board of Trade. We're very excited to see Vancouver profiled by one of our favourite magazines, the latest issue is currently available in-store and will be online soon.
AMI designer Alexandre Mattiussi’s fascination with the places where disparate lifestyles intersect brought us a Paris metro-themed collection last season, and this season he brings us to the airport for a diverse collection of professional and casual wardrobe must-haves. Whether returning from vacation or heading out on business, the Spring/Summer 2014 collection from Ami has all the essentials needed for a smooth flight, and everything else you’d need in the meantime. Prints are always one of Ami’s strong points, and this season’s tropical plant print adds a dose of fun and relaxation to the label’s consistent and dependable reputation.
