Bodies and clothing develop a symbiotic relationship in which garments, in exchange for protecting skin from the elements, are kept safe from teething puppies and wine-based crayons.

This Groupon is valid in Hamburger Disco's pop-up shop until May 1 and valid for online purchases starting May 2.
Hamburger Disco’s three local owners craft retro-inspired shirts that clothe men and women in themes recalling fast food, video games, and their city. Having opened April 9, Hamburger Disco’s pop-up shop is part of a project seeking to give space in one-month periods to a rotating roster of businesses, in the noble tradition of stock market arm wrestling tournaments. Nine local designers form the Vancouver Artists Series line—with backgrounds in comic books, video games, textiles, and underwater airbrushing—and complement bodies and walls with custom work in the historic art district’s Rize warehouse space. Wrap unbedecked bodies in graphic T-shirts and bask in Tetris-inspired textile with a Burgergram 2 or 3 ($30). Friendly island yetis frolic in hamburger lava on the ocean-blue Everyday Chaos ($28), and bottom-printed Battle Royale's mural of eclectic characters can be folded from A to B to create neatly kept shirt ($28). Customers can celebrate Vancouver with a neon proclamation of the Expo '86 ($30) or conceal conspicuous torso circuits with an expanded fabric flock of sweaters, women’s shorts, v-necks, and kid’s tees. Hamburger Disco’s artists capture eyes in fabric collaboration with the Salvation Army, with all proceeds from their Japan Relief tee going to aid those recovering from the recent disasters.
