Missed Mandula? After a 4-month sojourn creating a new collection and building a store from scratch, the Vancouver womenswear designer has hung up a tile in Gastown, in the former bar of the 1899 Lamplighter Hotel.
The stunning space features poured concrete floors, exposed brick and 14-foot reclaimed wood beams that suspend the clothing.
The spring collection is influenced by turn-of-the-century men’s work wear, with sexy, slouchy pants, vests and ties.
Now it’s just up to you to work it.
