Geek Fashion Fix | Favorite Finds: Star Wars Edition
Whether you liked it or not (and you should most definitely have liked it), Star Wars and it’s inspired fashion ruled the month of December. It seems the sold-out Rag and Bone x Star Wars collection that dropped at the beginning of the month was the domino effect for everything else— one after another, brand after brand, they filled my inbox, my Instagram feed, and my Facebook ads as I reflexively clutched my wallet in response. I needed them ALL, but with Christmas just around the corner, I had to put personal my shopping on hold.
Here’s all the galactic Star Wars goodness that dropped this month.Christian Louboutin's The Last Jedi-inspired heels
Just in time for The Last Jedi premier, Louboutin created a pair of shoes for Rey, Phasma, Rose, and Holdo, each with bespoke jewel designed to resemble a Tie Fighter. After being showcased at the premiere, each pair was auctioned on Charity Buzz, with a portion of the proceeds benefiting the Children’s Starlight Foundation. While I’d never spend that money on a pair of shoes, let alone a pair I wouldn’t be able to walk in, that doesn’t mean I can’t still enjoy these gorgeous creations from afar.
After the success of the Rogue One-inspired jacket collection, Columbia partnered with Star Wars yet again to bring us a limited run of their amazing Echo Base Collection, with three jackets inspired by Luke, Leia, and Han. Only 1,980 jackets were produced in each style (celebrating the 1980 release of Empire Strikes Back) and they sold out online insanely fast. There's a possibility that some are left in select stores, but I wouldn't underestimate Star Wars fans if I were you.
Now we can move onto something a little more accessible. With mini and full-sized backpacks (and even a toy carrier!) with designs inspired by everyone from Darth Vader to R2D2, it seems STATE had a bag in mind for everyone. My personal favorite? The Kane Princess Leia backpack, with an all-over custom print of our favorite princess's iconic hairstyles and a custom interior Leia & Eewok lining.
I think ASOS is the perfect place for anyone who still wants to shop fast-fashion: the quality is a major upgrade from cheaper brands such as F21 and H&M without the history of controversy like its competitors (ahem, looking at you, Urban Outfitters and Zara). The force is strong with this one, with tracksuits fit for a Sith Lord and dresses suited for galactic royalty. The line appeals to the traditionalists as well, sporting a few graphic tees with beloved characters such as BB-B and Princess Leia.
