First there was the war­time-bunker-chic Leisure Cen­tre, and now down­town has wel­comed Off-white—a high-fash­ion streetwear re­tailer founded by Louis Vuit­ton artis­tic di­rec­tor Vir­gil Abloh—that could pass for an un­der­ground park­ing lot if you pulled the spare gar­ment racks and shoes on crates. If you haven’t walked by it yet, that could be be­cause the Al­berni Street en­trance is in an al­ley. Is this a novel fash­ion ex­pe­ri­ence (we were get­ting bored of soft sur­faces and colour any­ways!), or a 4,300-square-foot, con­crete cry for help? Ei­ther way, Vancouver’s re­tail ther­apy just got a lot more ex­per­i­men­tal.
