Star Wars is having something of a cultural moment right now. Recent trailers of the forthcoming movie have reinvigorated interest in the iconic cinema franchise.
Fashion wise, as recent as at London Collections: Men two weeks ago, Bobby Abley sent stormtroopers, Darth Vader and even Chewbacca were sent down the catwalk. Well, you can get in on all of the Star Wars action too, with the release of a new range of headgear from New Era.
The international lifestyle brand with an authentic sports heritage has just released its second exclusive Star Wars collection. This time around, the designs celebrate two of the most iconic Star Wars characters – C-3PO and R2-D2.
The fitted, faux metallic leather caps feature intricate embroidery that show off details from both of the character masks – the metallic silver and blue and the brilliant gold both bring the droids to life. Each character also has its character printed on a galactic inspired satin lining to be found on the interior six panels of the cap.
With prices from £28 – £40 for the two new designs, both of the new snapback designs are easily accessible ways to buy into the recent re-obsession with Star Wars. It makes perfect sense that New Era, with its history in sports heritage going back 90 years and its finger on the pulse, and encouragement for wearers to “Fly your own flag” should be the ones to work on this new collection.
The new designs are strictly limited to 144 pieces so you need to act fast to get your hands on them. Available exclusively at New Era and at Selfridges.
