It’s no secret that our boy Drake is incredibly proud of his Toronto roots. He runs through The 6ix, featured the CN Tower on his album cover, and has been a fixture at Raptors games. Now, the famed rapper’s OVO brand is launching a merchandise line with U of T.
Few details have been released but the collaboration was teased in a video posted to the OVO Instagram page on Wednesday.
OVO Collab with U of T
The video features scenic shots of the U of T campus and stars Canadian swimmer Kylie Masse, 4-time Olympic medalist and University of Toronto alumna. Kylie is shown wearing different pieces from the collection that all feature the famed OVO symbol and the U of T emblem.
There were also a few images of the collection posted to the OVO brand’s Instagram stories that give a more in-depth look at what we can expect. We got a sneak peek at the varsity jacket, crewneck, t-shirt, baseball cap, long-sleeved shirt, gym shorts and quarter-zip.
While no prices have been announced or shared yet, it’s safe to assume that the pieces won’t come cheap. Plus, it’s highly likely that it’ll sell out extremely fast, so we suggest purchasing ASAP to avoid paying those steep re-seller prices.
All about celebrating Canadian excellence, the collection will be available both in store and online on Friday, August 20th.
