Britney <3's Canadian Designers

Britney Spears showed up to her concert after part rocking another garment by a Canadian designer.

Britney Spears' entire tour costumes were designer by Toronto twins Dan and Dean Caten, aka DSquared2. While performing in Montreal, Britney showed up to her after party wearing a coat by Montreal-based designers and childhood friends Eran Elfassy and Elisa Dahan, better known as Mackage.

Mackage's strengths lie within their outerwear and use of wool with well cut leather detailing. Their coats have great shape and clean lines. They balance the femininity of the sexiness and sleekness of their coats with the masculinity of leather and large silver or gold button detailing.

Britney isn't the only Hollywood starlet rocking Mackage's coats. Hilary Duff, Jessica Biel, Halle Berry, Kreesha Turner, and Kristen Bell have all been spotted wearing Mackage. Mackage is also a favourite of wardrobe departments and can be seen in shows such as Gossip Girl, Nip/Tuck, 24, and The Sopranos.

Mackage's coats are quality coats that will set you back a few hundred dollars or more.

Currently Mackage is selling this leather bomber jacket (below) at popular Canadian boutique Aritzia for $550.
