Rose of Vancouver-based streetwear retailer CrownTheQueens is our neighbor to the north, representing not just Canada but also the West Coast. Visit the online site for her store and you will see Rose’s love of the culture stamped all over it with its mix of her own line, reworked vintage tees, collectible pairs of kicks, and accessories like gold chain shoe laces and nail charms. The shop itself offers on-site manicures, an oasis in a city where French manis are the norm. More than just a retailer, Rose is a curator of a culture.
