TORONTO - Hayden Christensen is bringing a touch of home to his new collaboration with RW&Co. as he branches out beyond the film world into fashion.
The Vancouver-born actor of "Star Wars" fame is teaming up with the Canadian retailer on a menswear line.
The 20-piece collection is inspired by time Christensen spent at his farm in Ontario during the holiday season, and will include coats, jackets, shirts, pants, knitwear and accessories.
RW&Co. president Sue Vovko says the retailer is thrilled to be teaming up the actor, whom she described as "a talented Canadian known for his aspirational and effortless personal style."
The partnership with Christensen marks the first design collaboration for RW&Co.,and prices for the line will range from $69 to $249.
The holiday capsule collection will be available at RW&Co. stores across Canada as well as online in early November.
Joe Fezzuoglio, RW&Co.'s men's merchandise manager, says Christensen was involved in every phase of product development for the collection.
The line is said to be characterized by Christensen's love of rich colours, pattern and texture, with deep plum, teal and mustard set to be featured.
A camouflage-lined jacket and a reversible graphic print sweatshirt are among the pieces slated to be showcased in the collection.
"I'm excited to partner with a brand I feel such an authentic connection to and one that shares my detail-oriented design sensibility," Christensen said in a release on Monday.
"I'm looking forward to wearing my designs."
