On Thursday, October 9th we launched the wings+horns x Canada Goose Decade Parka at our retail showroom in Vancouver, BC. Thanks to 33 Acres, Odd Society Spirits, DJ’s Marvel and Kutcorners, and everyone in our community who came out and celebrated the occasion with us. For the full gallery, click below.
Born of Function, but infused with style, the Decade Parka brings together the best from Canada Goose and wings+horns. Pairing a utilitarian silhouette with classic tailoring and finishes, the Decade Parka features a durable wax cotton shell, deluxe leather detailing, and premium Canadian-made quality.
Available now in the wings+horns retail showroom and select stores worldwide.
wings+horns x Porter is a travel-inspired 10th anniversary collaboration consisting of a versatile custom rucksack and zippered wallet. A decade ago, wings+horns was conceived on journeys between Canada and Japan, and this project, proudly made in Japan by Porter, honours those roots.
Innovative use of fabrics is a key theme of the wings+horns ten year project. Both of these pieces are constructed from a mix of leather and suede, with the rucksack also incorporating nylon flight satin and heavy duty canvas. Featured elements of the wings+horns x Porter rucksack include an orange water resistant liner, side entry zipper with reinforced side carry handle, and two way zippers throughout.

The latest in this year’s series of wings+horns 10th anniversary projects is the premium suede ‘Desert Creeper’ boot, handmade by legendary British shoemaking company George Cox. True to their reputations for craftsmanship and innovation, the Desert Creeper combines wings+horns’ signature 4-needle stitching with George Cox’s famous woven Creeper toe.
George Hamilton Cox introduced the first Creeper in 1949, and the construction of the wings+horns x George Cox Desert Creeper is as timeless as its design. Featuring Goodyear welting, a natural crepe sole and a custom co-branded insole, each pair of boots is authentically handcrafted in Northhamptonshire, England, where George Cox was established in 1906.
