Hot Shop: Art of Marina, Studio & Gallery

September 30, 2020

What began as a Canadian lifestyle brand known for its luxurious 100 per cent Mulberry silk kimonos featuring dreamy, original watercolour prints created by award-winning Vancouver-born designer Marina Billinghurst is now an honest-to-goodness boutique set in the heart of Penticton, B.C., on the Naramata wine route.

Billinghurst’s bricks-and-mortar, located (deliciously!) on the Three Sisters Winery property, is a cosy, colourful, creative space (check out the custom Canadian provincial flower wallpaper and try to pick out B.C.’s Pacific dogwood or Alberta’s wild rose) where you can lose track of time browsing limited-edition Art of Marina silk kimonos and scarves made from sustainably sourced materials, as well as original artwork and home-décor items with signature prints, such as pillows, wallpaper and upcycled furniture redone with Billinghurst’s own custom fabrics.

After you make your pretty purchases, wander over to the Three Sisters tasting room for a sip—it’s just steps away! —Noa Nichol

Art of Marina, Studio & Gallery, 475 Upper Beach Rd. N., Penticton, B.C., 778-476-3257,

Win! An Art Of Marina Limited-Edition Peony Print Kimono!

We have a winner! Congratulations Dana K. of Markham, Ontario, who will receive a limited-edition Marina Billinghurst Peony print Kimono in plum!
