Canada Goose has announced a collaboration with footwear designer Salehe Bembury as part of the lifestyle brand's multiyear partnership with the National Basketball Association (NBA) and its annual All-Star celebration. The limited-edition collection features signature patterns and contrasting materials fused with Canada Goose's functional DNA, while embodying the '90s NBA style. 

Bembury is an American designer and the architect behind several sneaker designs of the past decade.  

"The NBA significantly influenced my interest in design," says Bembury. "Growing up watching games with my dad, and loving everything about '90s basketball culture, from the '94 New York Knicks to 'Space Jam' and 'The Fresh Prince.' The '90s were a time of fashion exploration, and that ethos is what I believe Canada Goose, the NBA and I have captured with this collection." 

"Salehe Bembury is one of the world's most innovative designers of today and we are excited to work with him as this year's design partner for the NBA All-Star 2022," says Woody Blackford, executive vice president of product, Canada Goose. "Our NBA partnership has opened the door to bold new interpretations of the Canada Goose brand. This capsule combines the quality and function that Canada Goose is renowned for with the cultural richness of the NBA and Salehe's boundless design approach." 

The four-piece unisex capsule includes an expedition parka, concord fleece, signal vest and tundra bib – each with an exclusive co-branded Canada Goose and Salehe Bembury tonal disc and label featuring Bembury's signature thumbprint motif and the NBA logo. 

The 2022 NBA All-Star Game will be held on Sunday, Feb. 20, at Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse in Cleveland.  

"We are thrilled to see our second capsule collection with Canada Goose come to life ahead of NBA All-Star 2022, in celebration of the game's greatest players and our fans," says Lisa Piken Koper, senior vice president, global partnerships, NBA. "As the NBA celebrates its 75th Anniversary Season, our latest collaboration with Canada Goose serves an opportunity for our fans to uniquely express their connection to our game." 

The Canada Goose x NBA Collection with Salehe Bembury launches Feb. 11 at select Canada Goose retail stores, wholesale partners and online at in the U.S., Canada and EMEA.
