WHAT’S IT LIKE BEING A PART OF THE SECOND SKIN TEAM? FOR THOSE OF US WORKING IN THE NORTH TORONTO OFFICE, IT’S A FEELING OF A ‘SMALL ENTREPENURIAL COMPANY’ THAT ACTS AND FUNCTIONS LIKE A ‘BIG COMPANY.’ IT’S A SMALL TEAM, WORKING TOGETHER, DEVELOPING AWESOME APPAREL PIECES THAT YOU CAN ‘LIVE IN’ AND BE PROUD TO WEAR, AND THAT’S A BIG DEAL TO US. IT’S A COLLABORATIVE EFFORT, WHERE EVERYONE HAS A CHANCE TO SHINE BRIGHT AT WHAT THEY DO.
NO GREATER PRIDE COMES FROM THE SECOND SKIN TEAM THAN THAT OF OUR ‘CANADA PROUD’ COLLECTION.
…LATE IN 2011, WE WERE CHOSEN BY THE CANADIAN OLYMPIC CONSORTIUM TO OUTFIT THE ENTIRE STAFF FOR THE LONDON 2012 OLYMPICS. THIS INCLUDED: TSN, CTV, BELL, SPORTSNET AND ALL AFFILIATES. THE CONSORTIUM WAS LOOKING FOR A ‘GENUINE CANADIAN BRAND’. ENTER SECOND SKIN.
THE FIRST ‘CANADA PROUD’ COLLECTION WAS LAUNCHED FOR THE SUMMER OF 2012, CELEBRATING OUR INVOLVEMENT IN THE OLYMPICS. THE COLLECTION BECAME SO POPULAR AND SUCCESFUL THAT IT HAS BECOME A CATEGORY UNTO ITSELF HERE AT SECOND SKIN. OUR MOST REQUESTED ITEMS COME FROM OUR ‘CANADA PROUD’ COLLECTION.
WE DESIGN THE COLLECTION TO CELEBRATE CANADIAN PRIDE. WE LAUNCH IT EVERY SPRING, ALLOWING OUR CUSTOMERS TO ‘WEAR CANADA PROUD’ EVERY CANADA DAY WEEKEND, AND ALL YEAR LONG. View full article →
From time to time we get asked "where did the name Second Skin come from?" "What does 'Second Skin' mean?" Often the conversation goes this direction and that, and back again...but in the end, I love explaining why we say "Live In Your Second Skin":
At Second Skin we believe your skin reacts instinctively to the elements, and fulfills the most important functions, allowing you to achieve your best performance results, or offering you the most comfortable shell to 'live in.' So we design your athletic and leisure gear to act just as your 'Second Skin' would....breathing, responding, protecting.
You will find one or more of these values inherently built into every Second Skin piece. Whether it's through a technical fabric that protects you from wind or rain, or an element of stretch that allows for response to movement, or comfort of design that allows your skin to breath during any activity. Whatever piece you choose - we really want to make it easy for you to "Live In Your Second Skin."

Second Skin is welcoming Spring, and with Mother's Day just around the corner - we think there is so much to celebrate! Our recent Toronto photo shoot opened our eyes to the strength and beauty in awesome women and mom's surrounding us. A strong hand stand in the studio reminded us that just when you feel like giving up, someone special pushes you to keep trying. A fun afternoon bike ride shows us that beauty is everywhere; down the street, around the corner - where ever you make it! Choose your special items for feeling strong and beautiful...we chose the Endurance Sports Bra in black and pink and the Stretch Pullover in Turquois! Visit us at www.secondskin.ca!
