Generation X Author Dougland Coupland Launches Clothing Line

Iconic Generation X author Douglas Coupland—the man who, literarily, defined a generation—has collaborated with Roots to launch Roots x Douglas Coupland, a line of limited-edition clothing and accessories.

"I've never really seen too much difference between writing or making visual art or designing furniture or clothing. It's still my brain—I'm just using different parts of it for different things," Coupland said. "I want to present a wide-open Canadian sense of color, adventure, communication and openness that defines our country." Coupland is Canadian.
