The collection for teens and women will feature artwork and graphics from the creators of Emily the Strange, Cosmic Debris, which was founded by Rob Reger in 1993. The line will be sold at high-end boutiques and retailers across Europe.
"Our new partnership with Pier SpA marks the beginning of a new era for Emily the Strange in streetwear," says Reger. "In 15 years, we have built a strong publishing portfolio that has established our footprint in the global marketplace with a core fanbase. Pier SpA's creative and unique vision will give us the ability to provide our longtime fans with incredibly crafted garments while also attracting new devotees to the essence of Emily."
Licensee Pier SpA has also held past agreements with Karl Lagerfield and Katharine Hamnett, as well as recent deals with Boy by Band of Outsiders and Charles Anastase.
Emily the Strange's current licensing program spans T-shirts, dresses, underwear, toys, guitars and school supplies.
