Established in 1998 by Mister Martini, a long time tastemaker, curator, and founder of DIPT, Vancity Original is a brand that continues to feature Vancouver in way that speaks to everyone and anyone. Regularly worn and celebrated by local tastemakers, visitors, and celebrities, the brand authentically celebrates Vancouver while remaining true to Martini’s roots in streetwear.

With an office based in Vancouver’s historic Chinatown, Vancity Original recently re-introduced a few of their most popular designs as well as a couple new collaborations in their Spring 2016 collection.

Collaborating with arguably one of the most iconic Chinese restaurants in the city, Hon’s Wun-Tun House, the design team took the restaurants iconic logo and applied to both a 5-panel snapback and t-shirt for the collection. The team also linked with Freeky P of N8NE to create the “Rumble In Vancity” tee. Referencing the classic 90s Jackie Chan movie, Rumble in the Bronx, the tee portrays a tongue-in-cheek homage to the film that, while set in New York, was filmed entirely in Vancouver.

The Vancity Original for Chinatown 2016 collection is now available exclusively online and in store at DIPT.
