Feb 12, 2016

The city of Toronto is ecstatic to be hosting the NBA All-Star Weekend for the first time in history. While casual and die-hard basketball fans from the country are brushing up on this season’s highlights, Canadian fashion brands are celebrating the huge weekend with limited-edition products.

The Reigning Champ NBA All-Star Weekend collection

The first Canadian brand, Reigning Champ has partnered with Mitchell & Ness on a collection of premium Canadian-made athletic wear. The collection consists of a satin bomber jacket, crewneck sweatshirt, slim-fit sweatpants, crewneck t-shirt and 6-panel hat featuring the NBA All-Star Toronto logo. The two-tone collection represents the Eastern and Western Conference teams that will play against each other on February 14. The collection also features tonal Mitchell & Ness embroidery and a custom co-branded label.
Canada Goose is the second brand celebrating the basketball weekend. The outerwear brand, which was named one of the sponsors for the NBA All-Star Weekend, launched its popular Macmillan Parka in Carbon Camouflage for the Eastern Conference and Classic Camouflage for the Western Conference. Both parkas feature the brand’s iconic patch as well as NBA All-Star Toronto logo patch.
