Hayden Christensen launches menswear line

TORONTO — Canadian actor Hayden Christensen is getting into the fashion business.

The Jumper star has created a 20-piece menswear collection with Montreal-based retailer RW&CO.

The Hayden Christensen for RW&CO. line will be available at its stores across Canada and online starting Nov. 7.

The collection ranges from $69 shirts to $249 coats. There are jackets, pants, knitwear and accessories.

“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 press release. “I’m looking forward to wearing my designs.”

Christensen, who was born in Vancouver but grew up in the Toronto area, explained his clothing line is inspired by his time at the sprawling farm he owns in Uxbridge, Ont.

Joe Fezzuoglio of RW&CO. said the Star Wars actor was hands-on in creating the collection and involved in every phase of product development.

Christensen’s touches include a shirt with moldable wire collar and cuffs, a camouflage-lined jacket and a reversible graphic print sweatshirt.

The 32-year-old star will soon begin work on the thriller Inner Circle. He’ll be seen next year in American Heist opposite Adrien Brody and Jordana Brewster.
