The Canada Goose aesthetic is about to reach new heights with the announcement of its first-ever creative director, Haider Ackermann.

The Columbian-born, France-based designer is expected to herald a modern new era for the brand, harmonizing its existing cornerstones of authenticity, craftsmanship and performance. To kick off his tenure, Ackermann designed an exclusive hoodie in support of Polar Bears International (PBI), and it’s modelled by award-winning actor and author Jane Fonda, whose environmental and social activism aligns with this cause.

“What drew me to Canada Goose is its authentic reputation and drive to stay committed to its purpose. The impact the brand has had on the world around us is meaningful and inspirational,” Ackermann shares via the brand’s website. Keep your eyes peeled for his first seasonal capsule collection set to launch for Fall 2024.

King Charles renews his position as Patron of The Campaign for Wool in Canada

Let’s talk about textiles for a minute. Cotton is nice. Linen feels fresh. But wool offers great support for the planet and its natural, renewable and biodegradable properties, and King Charles III wants to remind everyone of that.

As he continues his patronage of The Campaign for Wool in Canada, His Majesty The King sends a powerful message that the rise of toxic synthetic fibres in the worlds of fashion, interiors and the built environment needs to be challenged. In fact, since his mission to support wool growers in Commonwealth countries began in 2008, he has been asking people to be more considerate in their choices of material, as choosing wool will help to safeguard the planet for future generations.
