Star Wars Meets Haute Couture

Hong Kong-based illustrator John Woo recently released his latest series “He Wears it” with an interesting take on Star Wars and high fashion.


Jango Fett Wears Comme des Garçons



The name Fett carries with it a cold air of dread and competence. To those with the credits to hire him, it is synonymous with success. To those with the reasons to fear, Fett means capture or death. The name and reputation are just two of the many things Boba inherited from his father, Jango.


Scout Trooper Wears Viktor & Rolf



The stormtroopers designated as scouts wear lightweight armor that is considerably more flexible than the standard uniform. Much like their infantry counterparts, scout troopers wear a black body glove covered with white armor. Scouts often work in conjunction with light reconnaissance vehicles, such as Imperial speeder bikes.


Boba Fett Wears Supreme + Visvim



A faceless enforcer, Boba Fett's distinctive armor strikes fear in the hearts of fugitives. He is a legendary bounty hunter, accepting warrants from both the Empire and the criminal underworld. He is all business, laconic, and deadly.


Clone Trooper Wears A.P.C.



At the time of their introduction, the Republic clone trooper represented the future of galactic warfare. Far superior to the battle droid armies of the era, the clone troopers formed the backbone of the Republic's new military initiative that battled against the forces of the Confederacy of Independent Systems.


Jar Jar Binks Wears Maison Martin Margiela



A clumsy, well-meaning Gungan outcast from his people on Naboo, Jar Jar Binks struggled to prove his worth throughout his life. Putting his awkward past behind him, Jar Jar left the swamps of Naboo to enter the even murkier waters of Coruscant politics, becoming a representative for his people in the galactic capital.

The military soldiers unswervingly loyal to the Emperor, stormtroopers represented the most visible extension of Imperial might. They were shock troopers meant to strike with speed and accuracy, putting down insurrections and maintaining order on the farflung worlds of the Empire.


Darth Vader Wears Band Of Outsiders

Darth Vader, Dark Lord of the Sith, was the scourge of the Jedi, a master of the dark side of the Force, and one of the Emperor’s most trusted servants. He wasn’t always a fearsome enforcer, however.
