American clothing store Splendid opens first Canadian location in Vancouver
With a surge of retail chains making their way up north, it comes as no surprise that other major brands are thinking alike by bringing their store fronts to our side of the border. Vancouver’s Pacific Centre welcomes California-based Splendid as the newest addition to their roster of shopping destinations. This marks the first set of standalone doors in Canada for the brand, known for their ultra-comfortable stylish basics (often a go-to for that perfect white v-neck t-shirt), with plans in the works for more cross-country. “Splendid loves Canada! Our merchandise is perfect for the active yet stylish lifestyles which is exactly how Canadians live,” says Julia Austin, public relations director for Splendid and sister-label, Ella Moss. The summer and fall collections for men and women are in store now — the vibrancy of the colours against the natural white space immediately evokes thoughts of palm trees and Malibu beaches — the perfect antidote to counteract winter blues. To celebrate the opening, shoppers will receive a free, limited-edition Splendid beach towel with every purchase between August 3rd to 5th. A perfect excuse for some new digs and to head Kits beach right after.
