If asked to define my hometown’s style, I wouldn’t really know how to. While not my cup of tea, I have to admit that Vancouverites are a polished and label-aware bunch (we’ve got a slew of high-end stores here from Louis Vuitton to Chanel to Burberry). Reflecting our eclectic population, there’s a definite international and urbane streak mixed with a relaxed and hippie West Coast feel.
Perhaps local blog StyleQuotient, run by designer and photographer Paul Melo, is the best glimpse into Vancouver style. The sleek site’s been going strong since the summer of ’09 and captures Melo’s take on the city’s personal style.
