preview – Hudson’s Bay blanket coats
It was neat to be included among the press to preview a new project at the Hudson’s Bay Company. A number of celebrated Canadian designers had the opportunity re-envision that most Canadian of garments, the iconic Hudson’s Bay Point Blanket coat. I want – I got has all the details and photos.
I particularly liked Smythe‘s version, a cropped, swingy jacket with a hood.
The catering for this media preview was truly outstanding – perfect little morsels of Canadiana, minus (thankfully) poutine. The greatest highlight was a candlelit bar where they served sugar snow candy, a treat that was a first for me.
I couldn’t stick around very long but I enjoyed the opportunity to preview this collection very much. Thank you HBC.
