Hipsters, fashionistas, and celebrities are all finding a reason to be seen in Gastown. Since 2005, Vancouver has been on the exclusive list of cities boasting a retail outlet run by the up-and-coming New York-based clothing design company, ALIFE. The brand-savvy won't want to pass up a visit to this location, as one won't find this product line-up anywhere else except in some world-class cities – New York, L.A, and Tokyo.
Stylish Clothing in a Stylish Setting
Inside ALIFE Vancouver, one encounters an array of urban-style apparel, outerwear, footwear, hats, accessories and artwork on display, exclusively designed by ALIFE. There's a big focus here on presentation, and the unique design of this boutique-style outlet might leave nearly as much of an impression as the products themselves. A combination of lighting, glass and mirrors help to create an inviting, hyper-modern image and a trendy vibe. Vancouver is known for its image as a shopping destination, and ALIFE more than meets the standards for boutique browsing.
Vancouver-inspired ALIFE Gear
As if boasting one of the rare ALIFE locations weren't enough, Vancouverites also can purchase exclusive ALIFE gear designed exclusively for this Gastown store. This comes in the form of two commemorative t-shirts: the maple bubble tee, featuring the ALIFE logo with red maple leaves, and the ALIFE Vancouver tee, showing a lone red maple leaf on the front and “The ALIFE Vancouver” on the back. A shirt like that guarantees some unique fashion “cred”, and provides just another reason to give ALIFE Vancouver a visit.
