I'm sure you guys heard, the 2015 Pan Am/Parapan Am Games will be held in Toronto this summer! I'm super excited about the games and had already ordered tickets to some of the events: the Opening Ceremony, Volleyball and Badminton!

Just last week, Canada's iconic retailer, Hudson's Bay unveiled the official Team Canada Collection for the games. Athletes were present and showed off the uniforms Team Canada will be wearing during the Games.
Inspired by the 50 year anniversary of the Canadian flag, Hudson's Bay's internal team of innovative and creative designers used the maple leaf as the starting point for the graphics showcased throughout the collection. Each of the 22 pieces is reminiscent of classic varsity sport; while at the same time are a modern nod towards the current athleisure trend in fashion.
The collection unites style and sport. Key elements woven throughout the collection include the bold and confident use of red, white, grey and black and modernized maple leaf, shown either outlined or solid with a strong Canada wordmark, designed in a font inspired by an oval athletic track. It captures a contemporary and modern fashion feel and hightlights the essence of Canada's strong and distinguishing personality.
The collection, priced from $30 - $140, for men's, women's and children's apparel and accessories, is available now to purchase in stores and on thebay.com.
What do you guys think of them? What's your fav item? I better go pick up some pieces before they sell out : )
