Hudson's Bay Just Unveiled The New Olympic Team Collection & It's Available In Montreal

The Olympics and Paralympics are always an amazing way to show our Canadian pride. And even though we won't be the ones competing or marching in the Opening and Closing Ceremonies in Tokyo, we can still show that we're all on Team Canada with the newly released Team Canada Collection from Hudson's Bay, the "Official Outfitter for the Olympic and Paralympic team."

The Bay, a staple in Canadian fashion, has been designing the Team Canada Collection for 14 years, including back in 2010, when Canada hosted the Winter Games in Vancouver.

This year's collection was designed in-house and will include the outfits worn by the athletes for the Opening and Closing Ceremonies, Podium, and Athletes' Village.

Even for the athletes, the official release is always a source of pride and excitement.

"There is something quite special that I can't really explain when an athlete receives their Official Team Canada Collection at the Olympics. It is a symbol of pride and honour of representing your country on the biggest stage," said Erica Wiebe, Olympic Champion and Hudson's Bay Bursary

According to the company, "the 26-piece Collection seamlessly blends classic fashion pieces with a street style aesthetic for a collection that is fashionable and unapologetically Canadian."

Part of the collection is an exciting partnership with Levi's®, the iconic denim brand, to really pay tribute to the classic "Canadian Tuxedo."

The Bay confirmed with MTL Blog that the entire collection, including the jean jacket, will be available at the downtown Montreal location, with "splashes of the collection" available at stores across Quebec.

The rest of the collection is more typical of what we imagine when we think of Olympics attire.

The Olympic season is always a roller-coaster of emotions for the athletes and supporters all around the world.

Tokyo 2020 has been particularly eventful, even before it actually started.

Originally scheduled for earlier this summer, the event was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The games are set to start on July 23, 2021, making them the first-ever Olympic and Paralympic Games to be pushed to a later date.

Hudson's Bay chose to release the collection early to help keep both athletes' and fans' spirits alive.
