Vapor loves Roots x Douglas Coupland

We interrupt your regularly scheduled Artist of the Week programming today to share with you some exciting news from one of the most influential (and one of our favourite!) figures in Canadian culture – Douglas Coupland.

Even though Canadian novelist Douglas Coupland is better known for authoring the international best-selling book GENERATION X, LIFE AFTER GOD and ALL FAMILIES ARE PSYCHOTIC, in the last decade he has established himself as a visual artist and designer.

Now Douglas has made his entry into the world of fashion by partnering with clothing retailer Roots to launch a limited-edition clothing, accessory, furniture and design collection.

The ROOTS X DOUGLAS COUPLAND collection is available in selected Roots stores, Pop-Ups in Toronto & Vancouver, and online at www.roots.com
