Apparel brand Canada Goose Announces Partnership with NBA

Apparel brand Canada Goose has announced a multiyear partnership with the National Basketball Association (NBA), that makes Canada Goose an outerwear partner of NBA All-Star.

Canada Goose will develop an exclusive design collaboration each year for players and fans.

This year’s design partner is Los Angeles-based brand, Rhude, known for balancing luxury techniques with streetwear elements.

The inaugural year of the partnership will launch with the Play in the Open challenge, born from Canada Goose’s Live in the Open ethos, the brand’s invitation to express oneself freely and without judgement.

The Play in the Open challenge will launch on TikTok on March 4, 2021, with a Tip Off Crew performing their best basketball trick.

The Canada Goose and NBA Collection with Rhude is a four-piece unisex outerwear capsule designed for the elements and built for year-round use.

Canada Goose is inspired by its archives, and each style reflects its heritage, including quilting, patches, bold branding and vintage washed colours and prints, all with distinct design cues from Rhude, NBA said in a press release.

The collaboration’s pinnacle piece is the Freestyle Vest, a layering necessity fit for shoulder seasons, transitional temperatures, and premier protection.

Freestyle Vests from this year’s Canada Goose and NBA Collection with Rhude will be made available to all 2021 NBA All-Star participants and will be available for sale through Canada Goose website and selected Canada Goose retail stores in the US and Canada.

The Canada Goose and NBA partnership is an expansion of Canada Goose’s activation during NBA All-Star 2016 in its hometown of Toronto, where the company created limited edition co-branded parkas for both NBA All-Star teams.

“We are excited that Canada Goose will be recognising the players and their accomplishments with their All-Star collections in the years ahead. Canada Goose will bring its legacy of style and innovation to the league’s global celebration of the game,” Salvatore LaRocca, NBA president, global partnerships said.

“The NBA merges cultures, socio-economics and brings people around the world together in the name of sport.

Canada Goose is an innovative lifestyle brand, redefining the category.

It was a no-brainer to partner with these two iconic brands.

This collaboration honours the heritage of both the NBA and Canada Goose, and is a tribute to the athletes that already covet the brand,” Rhuigi Villaseñor, founder at Rhude said.
