After having been at the helm of numerous fashion houses, having founded his own in 2001 and having designed, last season, an Haute Couture collection for Jean-Paul Gaultier, Ackermann is ready to embark on this new adventure, working alongside the president and CEO Dani Reiss who said of him: «When it comes to the combination of craftsmanship and beauty, there is no one more suitable than Haider Ackermann. He understood that Canada Goose is a brand unlike any other and that authenticity, craftsmanship and performance are the cornerstones of our brand. With its strong ability to exploit the energy and potential of our own heritage authentic, I can't wait to see its impact on our leaders.” An impact that we will see in autumn/winter 2024, when its first seasonal capsule collection will be launched.

A new beginning, therefore, which certainly does not happen quietly. The announcement of the appointment is in fact accompanied by an exclusive project, created to support Polar Bears International (PBI), an organization that studies, understands and protects polar bears and their endangered habitat. The protagonist of the initiative is a limited edition sweatshirt, called PBI Hoodiemade of organic cotton, 100% of the proceeds from sales will go to PBI to fund critical research, implement innovative conservation strategies, and educate communities about the importance of protecting the Arctic. A precious project, born after a trip Ackermann took with Dani to Churchill, Manitoba, known as the polar bear capital of the world. Its inaugural launch is a testament to their shared belief that every person is responsible for protecting the planet and has the ability to make a real impact.
