Fur traders dressed in the original Canadian Trapper look

No Canadian fashion story would be complete without talking about the Hudson's Bay Company, the oldest commercial company in North America and one of the oldest in the world, the Canadian department store had its roots in fur trading in the 17th century.
Last year The Bay under their HBC label was in charge of the this year's Canadian team uniforms for theWinter Olympics in Vancouver, as well as the luxurious redesign of The St Regis Room, considered one of the country's first designer destinations which carries exclusively collections like Balmain and Givenchy, as well as a great range of younger designer like Erdem and Calla. (I was of course obliged to include these names).

To celebrate the launch of their newest product range -the Hudson's Bay Company Collection- The Bay commissioned a series of Canadian designers to do one of a kind coats featuring the iconic HBC point blanket.
Todd Lynn, Jeremy Laing and Erdem were in the mix that included well established Canadian household names like Pink Tartan, Smythe, Lida Baday, Comrags, Harricana par Mariouche, Krane and Klaxon Howl.
