What do digital adventure maps and abstract art have in common? The newest dark and stormy leggings in my monthly collection! If you've seen the sneak peeks on my social media these past few days, you’ll know just how excited I am about this collaboration with ULLR Adventure Maps.
A few cool facts about the Whistler Mountain Bike Park, ULLR Adventure Maps and of course the newest leggings in my 2018 collection.
Whistler Mountain Bike Park
Did you know our Bike Park is considered the World’s #1 downhill park with lift access! Offering 4,900 vertical feet of lift access trails, more than any other bike park in North America, it doesn’t just run from the Village-side any longer. Creekside opened 5 new trails making 15km of new access increasing overall lift access by a whopping 20%, that’s HUGE! If you haven’t yet checked out the Bike Park, you’re in for a treat! Remember, always ride within your means and be safe, but don’t forget to have fun!
ULLR Adventure Maps
The best in digital technology, ULLR Adventure Maps bring amazingly precise maps to your mobile device from the ground up, around Whistler Village, the slopes on Whistler Blackcomb and throughout Whistler’s backcountry.
Offering a Free Tourist Series from Whistler Village throughout the valley is worth it alone to check them out, but it’s honestly the best maps I’ve seen of Whistler, so of course I couldn’t wait to get my hands, (well fingertips really as its an App) on the newest Whistler Bike Park Map. WOW! It’s seriously amazing, detailed and so well laid out. What’s really cool about this App is its handy features like GPS and Location Pinpointing, GPS Tracking, Coordinate Search, Find Your Friends and Safety Features such as finding your local SARS and Ski Patrol agency. It’s made with an easy to use interface and downloads, and even the least techy of us can use it easily. Check them out: ULLR
I was overjoyed to collaborate with ULLR and mix their gorgeous map on my leggings with some added splashes of paint and strokes of my brush. Together we’ve created a final product that I am excited to share with you today. To be worn in any bike park, forest trail, local gym, work meeting or a night on the town. Just because these leggings are dark and stormy doesn’t mean you have to be, where them loud and proud!!!
Picture majestic mountains, crystal clear lakes and evergreen trees beyond where your eyes can see. As snow and ice begin to melt, the ground becomes a blanket of flora and fauna through meadows of wildflowers like the lupin and wireweed. Stillness becomes your friend. Silence is all around. This is Nature’s heaven, Joffre Lakes.
A vast hidden wilderness of snow-capped mountains, alpine meadows and glacier fed lakes makes Joffre Lakes Provincial Park one of the most scenic landscapes in the province of British Columbia. And one of the most noticeable colours you will see around is turquoise, radiating from the three beautiful lakes, Lower, Middle and Upper Joffre. A reflection from the glacier eroded rock flour, the stunning turquoise colour which we now associate with the area makes for a picturesque backdrop in any picture, painting or leggings! Which is why we’ve brought back this striking print for you.
As if one stunning legging wasn’t enough for you this month, we’ve decided (with your help of course) to bring back in stock the Lupin legging.
She is bold, wild and free.
You can’t find these ephemeral wildflowers in your local floral shop, only in the alpine of our coastal mountains where you can fully appreciate their beauty. The Lupinus Polyphyllus can be found growing wild along the dramatic sidelines of the Sea to Sky highway, but mostly in the diverse fields higher up in the Garibaldi Mountains. A range of wildflowers can be seen stretching from one field to another, but the lupin stands out because of her bold, blue and purple colours and height which can grow up to 5 feet tall.
First Nations legend tells the story of a suffering tribe going through times of famine and drought, searching for any means of survival. The tribe receives spiritual guidance, that acts of giving and sacrifice are necessary, but no one is able to perform such deeds willingly. As an act of true selflessness and giving, a young girl climbs a steep hill (mountain) to offer her only possession, a precious doll holding the memories she has of her family. In the area where she places her doll, the sky opens up and rain begins to fall and the wildflower lupin springs up in all her glory. And so, says the legend, this is how the lupin came to appear on earth. -- Flower Essence Society
The lupin wildflower can grow in parched and devastated lands showing its resilience and strength when it comes to growth and beauty. Also offering stress relief and calming qualities from its flower essence the lupin truly is a wondrous plant that deserves respect and care when seen in the wild.
Symbolic of imagination, we can only guess the thoughts going through the minds of those catching a glimpse of the leggings walking by them in all her proud boldness.
Using the same recycled fabric we always have, to stay inline with our sustainable practices, you will notice something slightly different with this bunch. These new leggings are much bolder with a stronger sense of colour and outline from last years. We feel this is well deserved of these two prints and cannot wait to see them on you in the wild.
Be Bold. Be Wild. Be Free.
A love affair with retro Palms Springs, where you leave your troubles behind and spend the day sipping cocktails by the pool and dancing the night away under the stars. This pattern will make onlookers wonder what they are seeing, yet only we will truly know... the flowers, the faces and the dreams radiating from these La-La’s.
This delicate pattern will get noticed, and you’ll want to be so that you can say how good you feel in them and how good you feel about supporting a local, ethical and lasting brand, just like the leggings themselves.
We will be sharing stories in our social media of this fun and sexy collaboration from the design inspiration to the sultry photoshoots taken in a fabulous Palm Springs.
