Canada's Olympic and Paralympic athletes will be getting the high-end designer treatment in Rio courtesy of homegrown label Dsquared2.

Official team outfitter Hudson's Bay Co. announced Thursday that the famed fashion brand helmed by Toronto-born twins Dean and Dan Caten will design Canada's opening ceremony outfit for the Summer Games.


"We are constantly inspired by Canada, so it is an honour to partner with Hudson's Bay in dressing Team Canada," the Catens said in a statement.

"The opening ceremony look is made with our passion for our birth country mixed with the energetic spirit of Dsquared2."

The Milan-based label was founded in 1995 by the Caten brothers, who were inducted into Canada's Walk of Fame in 2009.

The award-winning duo has past experience designing sportswear, having been enlisted by Italian soccer giant Juventus to create their official team uniforms.
