Today in Toronto, Canada’s iconic retailer, Hudson’s Bay unveiled the official Team Canada Collection for the TORONTO 2015 Pan Am/Parapan Am Games.
Fourteen athletes including Sergio Pessoa (judo), Michelle Li (badminton), Bianca Farella (rugby), Jason Burnett (trampoline), Jessica Zelinka (athletics), Katerine Savard (swimming), Tory Nyhaug (bmx cycling), Scott Tupper (field hockey) Benoit Huot and Camille Bérubé (para-swimming), Cody Caldwell and Patrice Dagenais (wheelchair rugby), Leah Robinson (para-athletics), Melanie Hawtin (wheelchair basketball) took to the stage at the Glenn Gould Studio on Front Street to present a first look at the uniforms Team Canada will wear during the Games in July and August.
Inspired by the 50 year anniversary of the Canadian flag, Hudson’s Bay’s internal team of innovative and creative designers used the maple leaf as the starting point for the graphics showcased throughout the collection. Each of the 22 pieces is reminiscent of classic varsity sport; while at the same time are a modern nod towards the current athleisure trend in fashion. Each piece was carefully designed to ensure Canada’s athletes felt strong, confident and powerful as they commit to showcasing their immeasurable talent on the Pan Am and Parapan Am stage.
The collection, priced from $30 - $140, for men’s, women’s and children’s apparel and accessories, is available now to purchase in stores and on thebay.com.
