Last week I came across these Star Wars-inspired gowns of Rodarte. The inner geek inside me got a little too enthusiastic, as these beautiful silk dresses do look pretty amazing.
They were presented on the runway during New York’s Fashion Week and were made with both Disney’s as well as George Lucas’ blessing. Sounds good, but I would have also asked permission to Mister Darth Vader himself. Just to be sure… (You don’t want to get on his
bad dark side…)
The collection however is created for editorial shoots and potential exhibits only. Meaning: they won’t be made available for retail sale, so I’m afraid we won’t see them around much.
Rodarte isn’t the only one who got inspired by Star Wars, Preen was also showing some movie-inspired items during the London fashion weeks. Do I see a new trend on the horizon…
