Released at Comic-Con 2018, Take Your Love of Star Wars to the Next Level
Written By: Nicole Hakim Star Wars Clothing Line
The Lucasfilm Pavilion located in the exhibit hall at San Diego Comic-Con is the place for Star Wars fans. There, they will find photo-ops with the many displays surrounding the booth, exclusive toys for their collection and even high-quality fashion that will keep them comfortable while they express their love for the series. This year, the Heroes & Villains brand launched a new 26-piece fashion line, inspired by the legendary Battle of Endor from The Return of the Jedi. The Battle of Endor is surely an iconic part of the universe, and Heroes & Villains’ Creative Director Doug Johnson highlights some of the best pieces in the collection.
Go back to school in style. Star Wars style, to be exact. The backpack features the saying “Restore the Republic” in Aurebesh, a camo mesh “exclusive to that moment in the Star Wars universe,” Johnson explained, and an Endor Commando patch. In addition to an aesthetically pleasing piece, he said the pack is “able to pack as much or as little as needed while still keeping everything cinched up nice and tight.” Made with a heavyweight polyester and a keyhole closure, the otherwise vintage shape becomes perfect for a more modern look. Also included, Johnson said, is a “padded laptop compartment that allows you to pull a computer out quickly.” Talk about handy!
An awesome jacket can really tie an outfit together, and you can’t go wrong with one the color of the copper Speeder Bike used on Endor. The black and white detail and the embroidery give the jacket an interesting contrast, and Johnson said, “the imperial icon embroidered on the back in tonal thread gives the art a distinguished, but subtle read.” Adding the elastic waist and hood, this cool looking jacket is, fortunately, very comfortable as well.
Princess Leia continues to prove her worth during the Battle of Endor, and it’s hard to resist a piece inspired by such a strong female force. Using soft blue tones, this jacket will complement so many looks. Johnson asserted that the piece’s beauty comes from its subtleness, with its “golden embroidered rebel icon on the front chest, a tonal quilted icon on the back shoulders, and a playful printed lining with the iconic Ewoks all over.” The piece is simple, yet beautiful, just like the princess.
