OCIN Presents: The Break Room 2022

Our annual holiday pop-up, The Break Room, is back November 26-27th for the fourth year. The Break Room is a space that was created to promote rest, mindfulness, community, and connection; an immersive event that’s carried over the course of two days to allow you the opportunity to shop brands that are purposefully-led by beautiful friends in our collective that we admire – most are BIPOC and female-founded.

We are also excited to launch our Chapter III eco-swimwear resort collection. Available for the first time at The Break Room. 

This year, we are incredibly grateful to be hosted at La Bomba Floristry’s Shop in Chinatown, in ‘Vancouver’ – on the unceded and traditional territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh nations. It’s a neighbourhood really dear to us, so it’s extremely special for us to bring The Break Room to life here.

The Break Room is free to attend, and welcome to all.

In addition to curating a selection of products we love, we also host calming, thoughtful and restorative experiences to complement our vision of inspiring rest and connection during this busy holiday season. These events are ticketed with proceeds going to our non-profit ocean conservation partners, Ocean Uprise and Surfrider Vancouver.

We invite you to find time to come take a break with us. See below for the weekend's programming, The Break Room shop hours, and the link to purchase event tickets.

The Break Room hours and weekend experiences:

Throughout the weekend, we are honoured and excited to share the captivating work of Mark Kushimi – one of our favourite photographers in Hawai ‘i. Forever Drowning is one piece from his Oceanscape series being exhibited for the first time in our city, exclusively for The Break Room. We’re inspired by his vision of capturing real life moments in a way that inspires you to take a breath, slow down, and reflect.
