Have a Star Trek fan that you’re shopping for this Holiday Season? If so, you might want to check out what clothier Robert Graham has cooked up.
There’s an ever-increasing tide of Star Trek landing in the entertainment arena, that’s not really debatable. Dormant for some time, the IP surged back into living rooms with a number of shows on Paramount+, Paramount Pictures’ streaming service.
And while some of those shows have proven a little controversial, it’s also not debatable that it’s led to much more than the brand has seen in a long time. Of course, I’m talking about comics and toys, both of which have been flowing quite a bit as of late. And now you can add closing to that renaissance.
A new line of shirts is landing at retail, thanks to high-end clothing company Robert Graham. If you’ve been inside of a large scale department store… ever, then you probably know that brand. It’s a mainstay of stores like Bloomingdale’s and Nordstrom, and doesn’t shy away from pop culture elements and wild colorways.
So what happens when Graham meets Trek?
“As we began our design process with Star Trek, we quickly identified shared principles between our brands, including: the art of discovery, the pursuit of truth, and inspiring graphic elements that quickly became collectibles”, explained Sean Chadwick, VP of Design. “The collaboration was synergistic on many levels–from the RG brand mantra, “Knowledge. Wisdom. Truth”, that appears on every garment, to the art and science behind our design techniques, to the loyal RG Collector fan base, we knew we had a rich story to tell together,” he added.Sean Chadwick, VP of Design, Robert Graham
The line has arrived as of December 1st, and includes a six-piece series of shirts. Some of those are tees, while others are button-downs, but all of them are as instantly recognizable as “Trek”, as they are “Robert Graham”.
“This partnership with Robert Graham felt perfectly aligned to the core values of Star Trek, an iconic franchise rooted in equality and harmony,” said Jose Castro, Executive Vice President, Global Collaborations, EMEA Licensing and US Softlines, Paramount Consumer Products & Experiences. “This collection continues the amazing storytelling through detailed and inspiring products that are designed with the highest creative standards. The values that rooted the partnership manifested beautifully in the apparel resulting in signature pieces that fans can wear to express their admiration for the Star Trekseries.”Jose Castro, Executive Vice President, Global Collaborations, EMEA Licensing and US Softlines, Paramount Consumer Products & Experiences
