The perfect winter blanket, your new go-to red lip and books to push you into action.
We’re ready to spill the tea about one of our fave Vancouver haunts. Laurence & Chico Café, run by design duo Laurence Li and Chico Wang, is a café-boutique hybrid and an extension of the Parsons-educated designers’ quirky aesthetic (including a rubber-duck-themed restroom). The menu, curated by local chefs, changes every three months, so be sure to plan a return visit.
If going green involves contemporary-rustic decor, locally sourced food and a fleet of Teslas on standby for a shopping spree at Barneys, we are in. That’s what you get at 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge, where the focus is very much on minimizing environmental impact without sacrificing even a smidgen of luxury. The brand uses reclaimed materials as much as possible and even has five-minute-shower timers as a polite reminder that water is a finite resource. Saving the planet has never felt so fancy.
