The Galaxy Hoodie is a hoodie with a technical pattern that blends in with the night sky. Designed by an astronomer and astrophotographer, it’s made from 100% cotton and features a matching drawstring hood.
What is Galaxy Hoodie?
Antti Jokinen, Galaxy’s CEO and Astronomer, explains what the hoodie is and why the company made it. A photo posted by Galaxy (@galaxy) on May 28, 2016 at 11:53pm PDT Think of a colorful logo that blends in with the night sky or a piece of jewelry that blends in with the space-related objects in a jewelry case. The technical pattern Galaxy designed for its own hoodies is both of those things. It’s currently sold out on the company’s website and online store, but you can buy a matching pink one here. Galaxy’s method of hoodie manufacturing comes down to two things: cost and innovation. A hoodie fabric is more expensive, and the craftsmanship involved — several layers of elastic and a unique pattern — takes time and science to develop. Designer Balmain collaborated with artist Muriel Toledo on bright floral prints. If a fashion company like Miu Miu works with a tailor to create menswear tailored to a consumer’s form and size, the possibilities for accessory customization are almost endless with a pattern-based hoodie. It’s a design not found in the wild, so it requires more hard work. “Fashion patterns aren’t easy to produce, and going global is a challenge,” said Jokinen. To produce this fashion accessory globally, Galaxy hired Muriel Toledo, an award-winning pattern-welder at Lafayette College and Texas A&M University, to design the patterns. But beyond the pattern-making and manufacturing aspects, Galaxy is a company that’s all about community.

What does it mean to have hoodies that happen to look like space? This morning, my boyfriend and I were walking down the street in warmer weather and saw the orange galaxy printed on a pop-up hoodie. It definitely reminded us of rainbows due to its bright colors. At first, I was thinking it was some kind of adult-only hoodie with lyrics to an EDM song on it, but no. The graphic itself feels more of a “I’m-in-the-chemistry-lab-bonding-with-my-space-coyote” vibe, rather than something one would wear on the street.
