Finish off each unique look with a loop.

Add a pin or an extra loop; with images including a birthday cake, flying heart and wedding bands, favorite events are all covered, making Swatch X You the perfect personalized gift. Head on over to the Swatch shop to start designing yours today. Prices start from £41.50. 

Canada Goose and October's Very Own team up for the ultimate in rain wear

Outdoor-wear makers Canada Goose and October’s Very Own (OVO) join forces to launch their second spring collaboration, one that's designed to perform superbly through inclement weather while looking ultra fashionable. Hot off the heels of both Toronto-born success stories’ sixth collaboration last fall, Canada Goose and OVO are proud to announce The Timber Shell X OVO ($895) for men. 

This high-performance rain shell brings together OVO’s distinct design aesthetic with Canada Goose’s technical know-how with fully seam-sealed waterproof fabrication and extreme breathability. The Timber Shell X OVO shines when the sun goes down thanks to reflective strips that add visibility on pocket and zipper details as well as the arms and back. It also has a three way adjustable hood for superior protection in high-wind conditions. 

Shop the limited-edition collection at Canada Goose retail locations in Toronto and New York, or online at www.canadagoose.com.
