Shawn Mendes is on the face of Tim Horton’s coffee cups and now he’s got a limited-edition collection at clothing retailer Roots. Launched today (Sept. 4) to celebrate the multi-platinum pop star’s hometown stadium show at Toronto's Rogers Centre on Sept. 6, included in the line are charity baseball caps benefitting his new Shawn Mendes Foundation, which is presently raising money for SickKids and Reverb.
One of the baseball cap, which sells for $40, is available exclusively at the Toronto rose garden pop-up, while the Roots Modern Leaf baseball cap ($28), available in seven different colours, is on sale at any Roots store across Canada or online, between Sept. 4 to 11. One hundred percent of the profits from these sales will also be donated to the foundation up to $100,000.
The pop-up, set up in downtown Toronto at 290 Bremner Blvd. from Sept. 4 to 6, has 10,000 fresh pink roses and eight-foot tall rose beds. A flower-lined winding path leads to the store.
