Canada Goose taps Haider Ackermann as first-ever creative director

Haider Ackermann is Canada Goose’s debut creative director! The fashion designer has been appointed at the helm of the outerwear brand, and will be based in Paris as his new role begins. To celebrate the moment, Ackermann has launched a new organic cotton $275 PBI hoodie that supports polar bear conservation organization Polar Bears International (PBI). The launch, inspired by a trip Ackermann took to Manitoba with chairman and CEO Dani Reiss, is also complemented by a new campaign starring actress Jane Fonda. The designer will launch his first full Canada Goose capsule in fall 2024.

“What drew me to Canada Goose is not only how they have created a category, but also its authentic reputation and drive to stay committed to its purpose. The impact this brand has had on the world around us is meaningful and inspirational,” said Ackermann. “Collective action is the only way we can go further, faster. I have put my full force into inspiring planet-friendly choices to address the climate crisis, and partnering with Haider and Canada Goose to bring attention to what’s happening in the Arctic is powerful, important and essential,” said Fonda.

Chanel’s Through Her Lens program will return to the Tribeca Film Festival 

Chanel is coming back to the Tribeca Film Festival this year. For the 2024 event, the French luxury brand’s Through Her lens program will return to support and mentor female filmmakers. The series will kick off with a June 7 conversation panel with Kerry Washington, Patty Jenkins, and Laura Karpman, moderated by Perri Peltz at the Chelsea Hotel—which is free and open to the public through registration online. In September, the full Through Her lens program includes mentorship to female and non-binary filmmakers across a three-day workshop with masterclasses on development, directing, producing, costume design, music composition, and more. At the end of the series, participants will pair with mentors to present their refined creative ideas; one pair will receive full film financing, while four others are given grants to aid in their development. You can currently register for Through Her Lens on Tribeca’s website.

“Tribeca and Chanel have a long legacy of championing women and non-binary filmmakers, and are endlessly dedicated to investing in the next generation of visionaries,” said Tribeca’s CEO and co-founder Jane Rosenthal, noting the contributions of her late mentor Paula Weinstein. “In Paula’s honor and following the example she set, we’re excited to open this event to the public and invite a wider audience to join us for an inspiring discussion on the crucial role mentorship plays in creating a more equitable future for the next generation of filmmakers.”
