Repping U of T just got a whole lot more fashionable. The school announced that its collab with Drake’s famous clothing brand OVO will drop this Friday.

As if Drake’s brand showcasing the Varsity Blues wasn’t enough star power, the promo video for the new items features Olympic medallist and U of T grad Kylie Masse rocking a varsity jacked emblazoned with the U of T logo on the front and the OVO owl on the back. The classy piano in the background is the work of Canadian composer Chilly Gonzales.
Photos posted on OVO’s Instagram stories include glimpses of a “Class of ’08” grey crewneck, a baseball cap with “Same City, Same Friends” stitched on the side and a collared quarter-zip with both the owl and the U of T logo on the front, along with a navy hoodie and red gym shorts. There’s also a tote bag in the collection for lugging around those heavy textbooks (or, you know, other stuff).

Prices haven’t been released yet, but as with anything OVO, expect some steep figures and a battle to keep these hot new pieces in your shopping cart. The items will be available both online and in-person Friday at 12 p.m. “local time” as stated by OVO’s latest Instagram post.

With Drake having performed at Ryerson Frosh Week in 2017 and now collabing with U of T, York students continue to patiently wait for the 6ix God to smile upon them.
