For 25 years, the Hubble telescope has instilled light-years of wonder in our eyes, hearts, and imaginations, and now, thanks to Slow Factory, on our bodies. Alongside their fleet of astronomical collections, including Mars scarves and satellite wraps, Slow Factory adds the new #Hubble25 collection, celebrating the telescope's historic images and 25th birthday with galactic accessories.

Traveling back to the earliest days of Hubble, designer Céline Semaan Vernon plays upon a grainy 1998 photo of star HR 8799 for Decade Old Planet, a pixelated scarf with an intentionally outdated appearance. “Looks like nintendo or some kind of retro art!” explains Vernon. Other new designs, like Globular Cluster, sport the image of a massively stellar core of activity recently captured in shiny, spectacular detail. “We love this print so much,” says Vernon, that, in addition to a Globular scarf, “we made a Bill Nye's bow tie and a Neil de Grasse Tyson Tie in their honor.”
