WAYNE GRETZKY DEBUTS “NO. 99” CLOTHING LINE AT TORONTO FASHION WEEK
In recent years, athletes have not only become a front row presence at fashion week, but they have used the events as a forum to showcase their own clothing lines. Wayne Gretzky debuted his new apparel line, the “No. 99 Wayne Gretzky Collection,” at Toronto’s World MasterCard Fashion Week.
The line is a collaboration with Sears Canada and the event showcased the upcoming Spring ’16 collection from the former hockey star. In describing the design aesthetic of the line, Gretzky told the Canadian Press: “I think I’m not as flashy as some other professional athletes might be,” Gretzky said in an interview Thursday at Sears Canada’s Toronto offices prior to the show. “I’m more of a basic person as far as blacks and blues and browns sort of go. I think the most important thing we all want to come across when you’re dressed is to be comfortable yet stylish. Most importantly, for the regular person coast to coast, you want it to be affordable.”
The “No. 99 Wayne Gretzky Collection” is available exclusively at Sears Canada. The range offers a mix of pants, sport jackets, sweaters, tees, outerwear, and denim. To shop the line, visit here.
