Canadian fashion brand RW&CO. has teamed up with Canadian actor Hayden Christensen (Star Wars Episodes II and III, Jumper) for a menswear capsule collection.
"We're thrilled to be partnering with Hayden, a talented Canadian known for his aspirational and effortless personal style," says Sue Vovko, president, RW&CO. "RW&CO. is a fashion brand that is young, authentic and modern–qualities that Hayden embodies so well. He's the perfect choice for our first capsule collection."
The 20-piece collection will be released under the label Hayden Christensen for RW&CO. in stores across Canada and online Nov. 7.
"Growing up in Canada, my siblings and I always loved shopping at RW&CO., where we knew we could find on-trend, quality clothes to suit our personal styles," says Christensen, who was born in Vancouver and grew up outside of Toronto. "I'm excited to partner with a brand I feel such an authentic connection to and one that shares my detail-oriented design sensibility."
Inspired by time spent at his farm in Ontario during the holiday season, Christensen’s collection includes coats, jackets, shirts, pants, knitwear and accessories.
“This collection is a true collaboration," says Joe Fezzuoglio, men's merchandise manager, RW&CO. "Hayden's enthusiasm for design was apparent in his keen attention to every fabric, color, print and detail. He didn't want to simply put his name on something that we created; he wanted to ensure that each piece was unique, and he was involved in every phase of product development."
