The 2016 "Team Canada Collection" features stylish and athletic shapes that are crafted around Canada's most distinct motif, the maple leaf. Recalling the "striking simplicity of early Canadian Olympic uniforms," the outfit's main attraction is a tailored blazer designed with a windbreaker material.
