Designer collaborations are everywhere at the moment, but as we all know, two brains are usually better than one. Still, while fashionable parings are popping up in almost every department store, I’m pretty psyched to hear about the new union between Canada Goose and Levis.
With decreasing temperatures comes the need for new winter attire and joining forces for a limited-edition Fall 2013 capsule collection, three of Canada Goose’s classic jackets – the Banff Parka, Chilliwack Bomber and Reversible Free Style Vest – have been given the Levi’s treatment with accents of deep indigo denim.
The garments come in rich tans and bright reds, while also adorned with Canada Goose’s patch and Levi’s classic red tab. The only drawback? The collection is part of a run of only 300 pieces, all of which will hit select retailers (namely Levi's stores, Levi.com and Canada Goose retailers) on October 1.
Needless to say, the exclusivity of the Canada Goose x Levi's outerwear could help it stand out amongst the thousands of other coats worn by Torontonions as soon as the weather turns chill (heck, I’ve already spotted dozens of them in this last week of September alone!). The limitation on production is a great way to increase demand for people looking for a one-of-kind winter warmer, plus the marriage between two classic American and Canadian brands is sure to have both sides of the border bum-rushing stores come D-day. Will you be one of them?
