Douglas Coupland Teams Up with Roots for Clothing Line

North Vancouver's famous writer, designer and artist, Douglas Coupland, has collaborated with Roots to produce a line of colourful, hip clothes.  They also have a temporary pop-up store in Gastown at 36 Powell St.  

I'm a big fan of Douglas Coupland's nonfiction books, such as: the Souvenir of Canada books (that I read in Japan), Terry Fox, and the one about Vancouver City of Glass.  Coupland's non-fiction work really connects with me.
