Vancity Tribe | Spotlight on Hey Jude by Lyndsey+Lauren

Now that the dust has settled from the holidays and the whirlwind of our last pop-up is done, we have been able to reflect and absorb all that has happened in the last few months. 

Earlier in December, we had the opportunity to present a runway collection at the Black Tie Event, hosted by Vancity Tribe. We had a few challenges (like the the power being out for the entire night!), but we were able to work with what we were given and present a collection we are really proud of. Below is a Spotlight feature that Vancity Tribe did on us about the show and a bit about our late pop-up. 

Check it out :)

Trend Focus / Grid Print + Pinstripe by Lyndsey+Lauren

One of our favourite trends of the season are large-scale grid prints and pinstripes.

It's the whole menswear-inspired, minimalist vibe taken up a notch.

While we've been loving our monochromatic looks the last few seasons, it was time to jump back into some prints and get a little more creative.

 We've been stocking the stop with some amazing items in this trend and they've been flying out the door soon after they've hit the racks. We promise though, we're hustling to keep this fresh look in stock - so visit us often and come see what's new!

Can't quite picture it? These photos below may be all the convincing you need to add a cool pinstripe blazer to your wardrobe. 

Like, now.

Brand Spotlight / Broken Promises by Lyndsey+Lauren

We've taken our pop-up to the next level this time around and have decided to feature some of our favourite brands alongside our vintage clothing. Shopping and supporting local is really important to us and we are excited to showcase some of Vancouver's talent. It also just so happens that all 4 brands in the shop are from the Mount Pleasant/Chinatown neighbourhoods; our favourite areas to hangout in the city.

We'd like to introduce these makers to you through our blog to give you a glimpse into their stories.

Broken Promises is the trading name, under which artist Karen La exhibits her work of hand-crafted jewelry. Constructed in Vancouver, British Columbia, each piece is created in an atmosphere of deliberate design and delicate preparation. Made of silver and brass, each piece is uniquely a product of Karen's own personal handicraft.

Taking inspiration from minimal art and 90's fashion, Broken Promises' collections see Karen La restricting her designs through the use of primary forms and linear lines. Broken Promises is for the modern man and women.

Hustle Blood by Lyndsey+Lauren

For all of our hustler ladies out there, this summer mix is for you. Our talented friend, Gimmemar, created this mix for us and for all those ladies out there making moves and doing what you love. While these hot (and sweaty) days in Vancouver make us want to spend the majority of the day at the beach, we've had to find that perfect balance and hustling to get sh*t done and squeezing in some sunshine when we can. This mix is powering us through our work days.

Spring at Charlie & Lee by Lyndsey+Lauren

The weather here in Vancouver has been incredible the last few days (We both got our first burns of the year... oddly exciting). It's that time of year when the new season really inspires you to amp up your wardrobe with some fresh pieces. We've stocked local Vancouver boutique, Charlie & Lee with just that.

Make sure to head over to the shop to see our collection of pieces as well as all the new stock that they have for Spring. Below is a sample of what you'll find in the shop.

Prep for EFW by Lyndsey+Lauren

As we put the final touches on our Eco Fashion Week show that's happening this Monday (where did this month go?!), here are a few sneak peeks from around the studio of what you can expect! Tickets are still available on the Eco Fashion Week website and it's the perfect opportunity to grab a few friends, dress up as wild as you'd like and come down for some amazing runway shows at the Fairmont Waterfront. Plus drinks are included with your ticket in case you were on the fence beforehand (you're welcome).

Pastel + Pineapples by Lyndsey+Lauren

A recent editorial we collaborated on was featured in Kneon Magazine's 10th issue. We got to work with an incredibly talented team and really do something that was completely different than our usual shoots.  You can see the entire reel in our Styling section under Book III.

You can also read the latest issue of Kneon at www.kneon-magazine.com.

Kneon Magazine by Lyndsey+Lauren

We got to create a really fun editorial a few months ago with photographer Danaea Li that was just featured in the new issue of Kneon Magazine. If you haven't had a chance to check out this web based mag, you should; it's super rad. Props were styled by the talented Sonia Capriceru, makeup by Paula Lanzador, hair by Stephanie Taylor and mega-babe models Dani and Amilee from Wilhelmina got to rock out in our clothing. We'll be posting the outtakes soon because there was just too many amazing photos we can't not share. 

In the Shop by Lyndsey+Lauren

As we start to get into that gorgeous Vancouver weather we're also locking away our winter coats and looking for that perfect Spring jacket. Something that makes a statement and adds something a bit unexpected: enter this AHmazing furry cream/white number. We both would have made it ours if we didn't have rules against that kinda thing... life's rough sometimes. 

This little gem is available in the shop. Jump on it because there's only one!
