We asked Lady Penelope Creighton-Ward, International Rescue’s London Agent, and big name in the fashion world to share with us some of her favourite items from the vast collection of clothing and accessories available from the Gerry Anderson Shop.
Now that the new year is upon us one has to look one’s best, and so I thought it was about time I livened up my wardrobe with some exciting new items. The first thing I must recommend to my readers is one of these recently launched ‘Raised on Supermarionation’ t-shirts designed by Chris Thompson. For any fan of Gerry Anderson’s Supermarionation adventures this striking design informs your associates that you were brought up on the likes of Thunderbirds, Stingray, Captain Scarlet and all those marvellous productions. It’s available for pre-order now at a special price.
Some more brand new items that are available for pre-order now are these three extraordinary patches, also designed by Chris Thompson. If you’ve ever wanted to be part of the Zero-X Crew, the Eagle Transporter Development Team or the Space City Research and Development Team, now is your chance. They look wonderful on anything you wish to stitch them to. You can pre-order them now for delivery in February.
Another item I simply had to have was the limited edition Thunderbirds 50th Anniversary t-shirt. There are only 1,965 of these in the world and each one comes with a certificate signed by one of the original voice artists, Shane Rimmer, Jeremy Wilkin, Matt Zimmerman or David Graham. I am rather thrilled to say that mine was autographed by Scott Tracy himself, Shane Rimmer. The white, red and gold colour scheme is quite stunning, available in men’s and women’s sizes, and I would go as far as to say that this is an essential for any enthusiast of International Rescue’s adventures.
Next I have chosen one of these splendid stirling silver pendants. The collection includes Thunderbird 1, Thunderbird 2, Thunderbird 3, Thunderbird 4, and of course my own personal choice, FAB 1. They are hand crafted in New York City by RockLove and are absolutely charming. Of course, it was very difficult to choose just one of these, but I could not resist my own Rolls Royce. I do, however, intend to collect them all.
This messenger bag rather superbly bears the artwork of the TV21 comic strip. I have in fact owned this piece for some time and aside from looking rather striking it is incredibly practical with lots of space and pockets to hold all of my essentials. Not to mention the zips are finished off to display the International Rescue logo which makes me feel ready for any hazardous situation I might encounter.
It would appear that while my attention was distracted, someone else may have added this particular item to my shopping cart. I have a feeling Parker may be behind it as the gentleman pictured on the shirt does bear a passing resemblance to him. In any case this is a very bold design in black and white with a hint of red. “Yes M’Lady” is one of Parker’s little endearing phrases which I am sure he would be delighted to see on a t-shirt like this. I am sure all of the girls at the club will enjoy seeing me in this one.
And of course, when the summer comes around, I will be in desperate need of a hat while sunbathing on the deck of FAB 2. This Official Gerry Anderson cap exclusively available from Anderson Entertainment is just the thing I need. It’s understated but also has a hint of elegance. Like everything else from the Gerry Anderson shop, it is very high quality. After all, I only accept the very best that fashion has to offer.
These are just some of the items that the shop has to offer with many more classic designs from television series like Stingray, Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons, Joe 90, Fireball XL5, Space: 1999, Terrahawks, Space Precinct and of course, much more from Thunderbirds. I have also heard that there are many more items to come. So overall I have to say that for officially licensed Gerry Anderson clothing and accessories, there’s no-where more F.A.B. than the Gerry Anderson Shop.
You can get all these clothes, accessories, and more online from the Gerry Anderson Shop.
