The 4 Key Pieces of the Canadian Opening Ceremony Uniform

Our athletes are off to Rio: here’s what they’ll be wearing for the Opening Ceremony.

As the Official Outfitter of the Canadian Olympic and Paralympic teams for Rio de Janeiro, Hudson’s Bay, along with fashion designers Dean and Dan Caten of DSquared2, created a sleek, Canadian-chic look for the Opening Ceremony on August 5, 2016.

Here is a breakdown of the uniform’s four pieces, all available at Hudson’s Bay.

The Jacket
The Opening Ceremony jacket is a modern take on the windbreaker, tailored, and in Canada’s quintessential red. The nylon-cotton blend features a three-dimensional “Canada” print, an elastic drawstring, rubberized buttons and a bonded zip chest pocket.

The Hat
A black and white homage to the classic trucker hat emblazoned with raised white “Canada” lettering, we’re betting that this cap will be all over the country during the Games.
