The Return of the #Supercrawl Fashion Pop-Up Shop!

For months we have been excited for the return of the Supercrawl Fashion Pop-Up shop. If you are a dedicated follower, you may remember us doing the Pop-Up last year at Limeridge Mall for 10 days.

This year, we are so lucky to be open for over three weeks (August 3 – August 25) right in the heart of Downtown Hamilton right smack in the middle of Jackson Square.

Seeing as the Supercrawl Festival is right downtown on James Street it couldn’t be a better fit!

If you’ve been following us, you may also know that over the past few years we have been branching our brand into creating original designs using vintage materials and fabrics we have obtained over our years of purveying.

Well, this truly is an exciting time for us, because this is our first ever Pop-Up where we are selling exclusively these one of a kind pieces that we handmade over the last four years. It truly is a special honor to be able to showcase these designs, and hopefully sell some to appreciative style-savvy people in our city.

We share this with 7 other fabulous Hamilton designers and brands including Batik Boutik, Defective Collectiove, Design by Mallory, Kitster Creations, True Hamiltonian, and With Love Lingerie. The chance for local designers and brands to showcase in a mall setting is so rare, so we feel very lucky to be a part of it all!

Hopefully soon we will have these pieces catalogued for sale to the rest of the world, but until then, keep updated through our Instagram and Facebook for any breaking news!

Until next time,

Vintage Surf Shorts by Scout Original

Scout Original is a Brooklyn brand that specializes in the purveying, restoration, and regeneration of fine quality vintage, rare, dead stock, and surplus pieces. Their pieces all display fine amounts of craftsmanship, detail, and loads of creativity.

Check out these vintage surf shorts that feature hand drawn memories of some mysterious lost paradise. Like images torn from a map; vignettes of hula girls, surfing pin-ups, tropical flowers, sea gulls and scrolls create the effect of a modern-day toile. These are the perfect pants for the park, beach, or a night on the town. Dress it up or dress it down – definitely perfect for that Paradise Found aura we fantasize about constantly.

This is just one example of the wicked works created by the dynamic team of Ryan Sneden and Gianna Galli. The pair draw from themes of nature, history, and popular culture with many iconographic pieces representative of popular archetypes in Americana (the rebel, the athlete, the hippie, the soldier, etc.).

Scout Original really goes to show that history isn’t just for dorks, and it’s about time we take to the relics laying around us and create something unique and remarkable with them!

Get these shorts today from Couverture!

Sincerely,

{The Eye}
