This season, Canada Goose unites unparalleled Canadian performance, London-based luxury design, and classic Western Americana in the unique Canada Goose x Rokh x Matt McCormick Collection – the first of the brand’s exciting collaborations for Fall-Winter 2023.
The unique partnership fuses high fashion with high function in an eight-piece collection including outerwear, knitwear and accessories. The capsule capitalises on the silhouettes and clean lines from Rokh’s “Office Essentials” collection, adorned with McCormick’s iconic chromatic landscapes, and heroes of the wild west.
Founded by designer Rok Hwang, who was born in Seoul, raised in Austin, TX, and lives in London, Rokh is known for its elegant and timeless, yet conceptual and subverted collections. The luxury womenswear label mixes creative elements, effortless attitude, artisan craftsmanship and intentional “imperfections” to create new iterations of wardrobe staples. Multidisciplinary American artist Matt McCormick’s oeuvre assimilates diverse cultural influences culled from the high and lows of American life. His artistic interpretation of nostalgic freedom of Western Americana is central to his body of work and is showcased through each piece of the collection.
First unveiled during this year’s Paris Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2023 in March, the capsule marries function, luxury, and craftsmanship.
The Canada Goose x Rokh x Matt McCormick Lightweight Down Strap Trench Coat was inspired by Rokh’s signature oversized trench coat fused with Canada Goose’s expertise in warmth creating a wardrobe stable that is available in Tan and Graphite colourways.
