There are few things that enhance the appeal of fashion, but cold and snow are two things that make it all the more fun. Over at Canada Goose, who opened their first permanent California retail store on October 29, functionality meets attractive practicality as they show just how fun luxury arctic apparel can be. Located at South Coast Plaza, and featuring its first-ever Snow Room in the United States, Canada Goose is on a mission and they’re ready to show you the proof in the pudding. The Snow Room, the next generation of our award-winning Cold Room, simulates a snowstorm daily with temperatures reaching as low as -10°F. This innovation replicates various conditions for visitors to experience Canada Goose’s functionality and performance, inviting them to put their products to the ultimate test.
The Snow Room’s environment is inspired by the climate of Churchill, Manitoba, best known as the Polar Bear capital of the world, and home to longstanding Canada Goose partner, Polar Bears International (PBI), the non-profit organization dedicated to advocacy and the worldwide conservation of polar bears and their habitats.
Known around the world as a performance luxury essential, Canada Goose can be seen on city streets, mountain peaks and film sets, alike, with a variety of ideal products for the West Coast lifestyle. The brand’s lightweight down jackets are made for every day, perfect for chasing sunsets in Malibu and hiking in Griffith Park. The newest line of lightweight down jackets, puffers and vests, called the Cypress and Crofton collections, are made with the brand’s Recycled Feather-Light Ripstop Fabric, which is 100% Recycled Nylon and includes a water-repellent finish. The HyBridge® collection provides lightweight warmth that is designed to move with you, perfect for active use, layering and on-the-go adventures. Packable and portable, these styles are also the perfect travel companion. The selection of knit sweaters, hoodies and zip-ups, made with Merino Wool and Organic Cotton, are fit for a casual, laid back look. Thermal Mapping® technology is incorporated in the knit styles to maximize warmth and breathability with strategically placed down-filled panels and a more open knit construction in areas that are prone to overheating.
Canada Goose’s HUMANATURE platform is the driving force of its purpose to keep the planet cold and the people on it warm. HUMANATURE unites the brand’s sustainability and values-based initiatives, including its Sustainable Impact Strategy, philanthropic work and dedication to culture through the arts. HUMANATURE is brought to life in the South Coast Plaza store through the Northern Art Program, which celebrates Northern Canadian artists. For this location, the brand partnered with artist, Winnie Truong. Truong’s artwork for the space, titled Zephyr, is a stop-motion animation work created entirely with cut paper that guests can experience in the Snow Room. Zephyr is inspired by the idea of the invisible made visible, with impressions of flora and landscapes of the Los Angeles area and beyond – across San Bernardino Forest, and towards Joshua Tree. Guests will be treated to an entrancing animation of beautiful scenes that rise and fall with the introduction of new environments. Additional illustrations and sculptures by Inuit artisans are showcased throughout the store, all embodying the symbiotic relationship between people and the planet.
On November 12, Canada Goose’s brand-new Footwear collection will be available in-store. The collection complements and completes the Canada Goose lifestyle. The collection features two styles: the Snow Mantra Boots and Journey Boots. The Snow Mantra Boots are born from the brand’s Snow Mantra Parka, renowned as the warmest coat on Earth and designed with functional intention. The Journey Boots are expertly crafted in Italy and built for the demands of the everyday. Designed with an iconic squared off-toe, The Journey was inspired by classic Hiker boots worn in the Alps.
