Above you see some pics of the Fall/Winter 2015 collection of Canada Goose. I visited their showroom in Antwerp, Belgium already in February. I had to wait to post these pictures until the first goods will hit the floor and with 25 degrees Celsius and more they just did.

Canada Goose was founded in a small warehouse in Toronto, Canada in 1957 by Sam Tick, under the name Metro Sportswear Ltd. After spending years working as a cutter in other factories, it was time for him to start his own business. Metro made woolen vests, raincoats, snowmobile suits, and other functional outerwear before creating down-filled jackets in the early 1970s. 
Canada Goose uses coyote fur around the hoods on their jackets because it never freezes, doesn't hold water, and the uneven hair lengths create a windbreak that protects exposed skin, helping to reduce heat loss from the face. This holds as true in urban environments as much as it does in the high Arctic.
