It’s been a minute since Anna Kosturova took home the Fashion Designer of the Year award from our sister publication, Western Living—back in 2008, she wowed the judges with her crochet bikinis, one of which had even graced the cover of Sports Illustrated.

Fourteen years later, she’s still got that special something, and with a new summer pop-up running in Gastown this summer, Vancouverites can get a taste of her timeless style.

Kosturova calls her Surf Lounge Pop-Up Shop an “inspiring coastal experience,” and a peek at the curated wares certainly conjures up visions of a boho beach vacation.

Alongside her hand-crafted crochet and tie-dye beachwear—made with sustainability in mind from 100-percent cotton or silk—you’ll find a thoughtful selection of other lifestyle goods from women-owned-and-operated small businesses: think Malvados sandals, handwoven Boostani bags, macramé from Bay of Arches and jewellery galore.

Got a destination wedding somewhere sandy planned? Packing for a surf-town trip down Mexico way? Stocking up on the surf-cool bathing suits, loungewear, and woven flip-flops here is a wise move. Even if you’re not leaving town, Kosturova’s got you covered, with home accessories (candles, crochet throws) that bring the vacation vibes.
