“The Opening Ceremony sets the stage for Canadian athletes as they embark on their journey to gold and as the Official Outfitter of Team Canada, we’ve designed a uniform that ignites a strong and unapologetic sense of Canadian pride for both athletes competing and for everyone cheering them on from back home,” says Iain Nairn President and CEO of Hudson’s Bay. “We are rallying behind Team Canada and wish every athlete the best of luck as competitions commence.”
Each Team Canada athlete received a complete clothing kit consisting of jackets, t-shirts, tank tops, lightweight track pants and shorts, tailored denim, baseball and bucket hats, and other accessories including a hip pack, sweatbands, a backpack, and luggage. The 26-piece Team Canada kit collection includes full outfits for the Opening and Closing ceremonies, Podium Presentations and village wear, all designed with performance, comfort and bold artistic motifs that pay tribute to the street style aesthetic from Japan, and modern Canadian-cool style.
Canadians can show their pride and support of Team Canada athletes by sporting the Olympic replica collection pieces available exclusively at Hudson’s Bay, the Hudson’s Bay App and on thebay.com.
