Vancouver Shopping
Ok, so here's the deal. I've lived in Vancouver all my life, , but i've never taken a major liking to fashion [the real fashion] until, well, now!
So, who can tell me ... well, everything I know about shopping in Vancouver?
Hehe, this is a test ... hehe!
Thanks guys

Bruce on Alberni - mostly up and coming labels and "edgier" labels

Holt Renfew (Pacific Centre) - All the top lines

Luxe (Burrard) - Designer bags

Louis Vuitton (Burrard)

Leone - lots of designer labels - not as many accessories

Chanel and YSL are nearby

Most "designer" bag and accessory stores are around Alberni/Georgia & Burrard

On South Granville
DKNY
Max Mara
Bacci (Rick Owens, Chloe, Narcisco Rodriguez etc.)
Many more

On Main St.
Smoking Lily (local and edgy labels)
Eugene Choo (as above)
And more

And a great link is http://www.fashionmagazine.com/CityD...chResults.aspx

Hope that helps!

There is also a bunch of local designers in the Gastown area... a block or so to Waterfront Station.

Obakki (it's by Richard Kidd, which sells Jil Sander and others)
Dream (across the street from vintage shop, Deluxe Junk & Co.)

I thought I knew of some more

Gastown has some really wonderful shopping. All you have to do is wander around a little while and you'll find some amazing stuff:

Dutil denim sells great jeans, I picked up the most comfortable pair of cigarette-leg earnest sewns there and they are my favourite jeans ever!

There's also a few little thrifty places.

South main has some really good shops. Between 29th and broadway, you could just walk the strip (about 20 blocks total) and find aaaawesome stuff.

Also there's lark on 8th, who just teamed up with the dutch bike store Jorg & Olif and the store looks beeeeautiful!

^what else do they have at Jorg & Olif? I saw their website and a brochure that had them in it--It seems they also have some kind of fashion items in shop, maybe accessories. At least that is what I read

I have also seen a teeny weeny Chanel shop at W 12th and Granville
It's away from the shops. You might even miss it it's so small. It's just a door really.. kind of odd.

I've never seen that! There's also a Chanel boutique at West Hastings and Howe I believe, also by Hugo Boss and Cartier.

Anyone been to Two of a Few yet? It's basically an extension of One of a Few (Gastown) with womenswear, shoes and menswear. I haven't been but heard it's amazing.

Oh, and Gravity Pope will be opening up a new apparel store soon...
