Where the runway meets the street

Big news from the Great White North. “Canadian-based clothing retailer Roots recently collaborated with prominent writer and visual artist Douglas Coupland on a range of items from apparel, accessories, leather goods to design items, furniture and original art. Best known as the internationally best-selling author of “Generation X”, “All Families Are Psychotic”, “JPod” and for his art creations, this is the first time Coupland has designed fashion wearables.”

Colette has taken the collection, which will launch in September.

Mr. Copeland discusses his work with Roots after the jump.
