Hudson’s Bay Unveils Team Canada Collection for 2016 Olympics in Rio
Bold reds, bright whites and giant maple leaf motifs – it’s not going to be difficult to miss Canadian athletes at this year’s Summer Olympic Games in Rio.
Hudson’s Bay, the official outfitters of Team Canada, unveiled this week on Facebook Live what our athletes will be wearing at the Olympic and Paralympic Summer Games.
And it appears that the graphic and bold designs and colours of the iconic Canadian flag played a major part of inspiration for the retailer’s in-house design team responsible for the collection.
“Wearing Canada’s colours unites us all, and we are looking forward to cheering on Team Canada as they go for gold in Rio,” said Liz Rodbell, president of Hudson’s Bay in a release.
The retailer provides each athlete – there are 315 on the Canadian Olympic team and 170 on the Canadian Paralympic Team – a clothing kit that includes full outfits featuring leisurewear, jackets, pants, T-shirts and accessories to wear around the Olympic Village, on the podium and at the opening and closing ceremonies.
