We recently toured Kit And Ace‘s Vancouver Gastown store, and were “happily” surprised by a recent addition to the space’s décor.
A giant wall mural features multi-coloured blocks, each containing a quote or mantra supporting the brand’s renewed commitment to spreading a message of optimism. From Maya Angelou: “Be present in all things, and thankful for all things.” Amy Poehler: “There’s power in looking silly and not caring that you do.” And Sylvester Stallone: “I believe any success in life is made by going into an area with a blind, furious optimism.”
Rather wear your optimism on your sleeve? Snag the brand’s Optimism Tee ($68); it’s the perfect basic with a touch of happiness, and the shape retention of Kit And Ace’s premium Pima Cotton blend. —Noa Nichol
