A summer pop up presented by OCIN: Somewhere Sunnier

OCIN is an eco-swimwear brand and an ocean collective inspired to bring community together, for people, for the planet, and for our oceans. We love hosting events with the aim to build community, connect humans, and raise awareness about our impact on the oceans and our planet. 

This summer we’re going Somewhere Sunnier with our vacation inspired, swim and ocean concept pop-up shop: an immersive three-day pop up filled with shopping, events, giveaways, and product exclusives. 

• Shop our exclusive curation of local and global brands.
• Pick up an OCIN discounted swim bundle and limited edition Somewhere Sunnier sets: curated sets created in collaboration with Forah, Human Essentials, Before, and artist Arty Guava offered at 20% off the retail value. $5 from each of these sets sold will be donated to Surfrider Canada in support of their initiatives.
• View a floral installation by Celsia Floral, stunning furniture by Part & Whole, and beautiful millwork pieces by Sage Lim.
• Enter to win a special giveaway in-store!
• Learn about our oceans and our commitment to protecting this ecosystem with our ocean education space produced in collaboration with our friends and long-term non-profit partner, Surfrider Canada.
• And if you're looking to invest in a new swim piece or two, try on our entire OCIN Collection. Bonus: Bring in any cleaned and pre-loved suit, and we'll dispose of it correctly through our Recycling Program. In exchange, we'll give you 10% discount off your new OCIN set. 

We hope to create a space where you can feel transported to Somewhere Sunnier – somewhere that sparks joy, curiosity, nostalgia, warmth, and perhaps even a sense of home. 

Big gratitude to everyone that made this event come to life:

To our incredible OCIN team and behind-the-scenes collaborators.
To our collective of brands
To Cinco Drink Co., Part & Whole, Celsia Floral
To our ocean conservation partner: Surfrider Canada
