Canadian Olympic Team Unisex Dual-Sided Scarf
accessories Monday, February 8, 2010
The February and March issues of my gift subscription to Elle Canada (thanks cwangdom!) arrived in my mail last week with a very timely full-page spread about the Canadian Olympic Team apparel designed by HBC. Now, the red torch-bearer mittens have been getting a lot of press for being best-sellers and I've always admired the Cowichan-inspired Canada sweater, but while reading the Elle Canada feature, the item that captured my complete attention was this unisex dual-sided scarf ($20). Handpicked by one of the design team members as a favourite item, one side features a red plaid pattern while the other side has "CANADA" on it in bold red letters. The rationale behind this design: It'll keep you warm and also serve as a makeshift cheering banner for spectators when you flip it to the other side. Clever eh? It'll have you showing your patriotism faster than you can say "O Canada."
