In 2010 artist and designer Lexi Soukoreff's love of colour and pattern manifested itself into a small-batch activewear brand that celebrated the basics. Daub is a local handmade clothing company that has acquired a following across Canada with bold prints and textures integrated into comfortable high-quality functional fabrics.
They are getting ready to launch a swim collection which is available for pre-order now. However, the real news is that Daub is hosting its second in-person warehouse sale this weekend on Franklin Street, just off Clark, with samples starting at $10 and some items discounted up to 75 per cent off. And for every 25 guests that RSVP to the event on Facebook, Daub will be giving away a $25 gift card.
There hasn't been a sale since 2020 for obvious reasons but this year people can expect to find leggings, tank tops, and sports bras on sale alongside ultra-soft bamboo sweatshirts and sweatpants. Daub's collection is minimal but there are casual T-shirts, T-shirt dresses, and flowy jackets. Plus the garments are all manufactured and hand-dyed in Vancouver. The Adriana leggings look like an homage to the oceans and mountains that flank our fair city and one of the shades is named Vancouver grey for our signature shade of sky.
The sale will focus primarily on clearing out previous seasons and deadstock but there will also be limited quantities of newer collections, footwear, and slightly damaged items like perhaps their yoga mats in bursting monochromatic prints. The sale will also have some items from other brands that Daub carries at it's Granville flagship, like BYoga and Halfmoon.
