There have been some huge fashion names that have come out of Vancouver, like Herschel and Indochino. But there are so many more that you might not have known were born right here in our backyard.
Canadian style is known for function and quality. Here are 9 brands hailing from Vancouver that live up to the True North name and have really made a mark in the international fashion scene.
TAIKAN Everything // @taikaneverything
Less is more. Designing backpacks, duffle bags, and totes with premium quality material, Taikan is taking functionality to a whole new level. Modern design with a purpose.
Reigning Champ // @reigningchamp
Quality athletic wear made for the Vancouver lifestyle. Reigning Champ creates their own signature fabrics and designs that are inspired by the great Pacific North West and Vancouver athleticism.
Wings + Horns // @wingsandhorns
Born between a Japanese inspired eye for design and a Canadian appreciation for nature and the outdoors, Wings + Horns creates simple yet innovative and timeless pieces.
Native Shoes // @nativeshoes
Bringing happy feet to people everywhere, Native Shoes designs super lightweight shoes that make you feel like you're walking on clouds.
HERMAN Market // @hermanmarket
The perfect intersection between rock, skate, surf and everything in between, HERMAN Market is creating men's and women's fashion that defies gender-bound style. And may I just add that the clothing is so sick that even Future frequently rocks their apparel.
People Footwear // @peoplefootwear
If Vancouver loves anything, it's comfort (hence the epidemic of women wearing Lulus even when they're not doing yoga). People Footwear is bringing the city exactly what it wants with comfortable and very versatile styles.
Bronze Age // @abronzeage
Who said slippers were only for the indoors? Bronze Age is bringing the Moroccan style "babouche" to North America and making this traditional footwear into a modern accessory.
Purple // @purple_brand
Two words: modern sophistication. PURPLE creates denim jeans that are stylish, a little edgy, and never faltering in quality.
Ransom Holdings Co. // @ransomholdingco
Made for the urban dweller who asks for style and the traveller who asks for durability, Ransom Holdings Co. designs footwear that is made to last through the test of nature and time.
