Her Universe is at it again. The company, famous for creating clothing and accessories for female sci-fi and fantasy fans, announced last week its license with CBS Consumer Products to create Star Trek-themed apparel for women.
The items will debut July 11th at San Diego Comic-Con during the convention and on the Her Universe website. Days ago, the company announced it was also premiering a Doctor Who-themed line for women at the same time. This means that Her Universe will have something for fans of both franchises.
The Star Trek line will feature tops and hoodies adorned with images, characters and phrases from the Star Trek franchise. CBS Consumer Products created a special Star Trek logo that’s only going to appear on Her Universe merchandise.
At this point, Her Universe founder Ashley Eckstein’s close to cementing her place in nerd culture history, if she hasn’t already. Not only is she the creator of clothing and memorabilia for fans of multiple genre properties, but she’s also an actress in a popular genre program–Eckstein’s the voice of Ahsoka Tano in Star Wars: The Clone Wars. (And, naturally, her company’s been selling Star Wars-themed apparel for a while now.)
“Star Trek has been one of the most requested Sci-Fi franchises from our fangirls,” said Eckstein via press release. “It is truly a dream come true for me to design for this iconic brand. We plan to boldly go where no one has gone before with the first ever Star Trek apparel line just for women.”
Folks will be able to buy the items at Comic-Con later this month and also in the United States and Canada at store.startrek.com, the aforementioned Her Universe website, and retail stores like Hot Topic.
