The Force is with Rag & Bone.
The New York-based fashion brand announced Monday it’s collaborating with Disney and Lucasfilm on a capsule collection timed to the highly anticipated release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi on Dec. 15.
Priced from $95 to $1,295, the special-edition range offers a Obi-Wan–inspired hoodie; black Stormtrooper sweatshirt featuring red vertical stripes on the right side of the chest; and footwear with the Ellis Force boot for women and the RB1 Force high-top sneakers for men. There’s also a white tee with the phrase: “More Powerful Than You Can Possibly Imagine.”
“I have always been a huge fan of Star Wars and it has been awesome to create a collection which coincides not only with the launch of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, but also with the 40th anniversary of the franchise,” says Rag & Bone chief executive Marcus Wainwright, who became the label’s sole CEO after David Neville departed the company last June. “Our approach was really to re-imagine some of our favorite rag & bone pieces while taking influence from some of our most memorable moments of past and present Star Wars films.”
This isn’t the first time Wainwright has shown interest in Star Wars; last October he enlisted Mark Hamill (aka Luke Skywalker) as the face of Rag & Bone’s new “Men’s Project” series.
Adds Wainwright: “We wanted the pieces to feel like something that referenced Star Wars but that also fit the Rag & Bone aesthetic — like a modern Jedi.”
Rag & Bone also announced its support of Lucasfilm and Disney’s Force 4 Fashion initiative, a charitable program under the banner “Star Wars: Force for Change” that was created to empower and improve the lives of children around the world.
As part of the collection’s launch, Rag & Bone, Lucasfilm and Disney will host three events on Dec. 2 in New York, Los Angeles and London.
