The new collection includes more subtle pieces, like the Darth Vader cape dress with hematite tone studded Darth Vader helmet detail, and the black faux leather jacket adorned with an Imperial logo. For those who prefer to express their fan fashion with more prominent pieces, there is a black sweater with a large Darth Vader mask design, and a blue sweater with a large R2-D2 design. The Star Wars bomber style jacket are particularly awesome. The olive green jacket is the Boba Fett design, and the second version is a grey body with a BB-8 design. Both jackets have two pockets and front zipper closure.

Her Universe founder Ashley Eckstein, who is also known for her role as a voice actor for “Star Wars Rebels”, asked fans in a video to step into the spotlight and share their unique Star Wars story for a chance to be featured in an upcoming Hot Topic and Her universe Star Wars fan appreciation video:

“So to celebrate, we want you to step into the spotlight and share your Star Wars story. What does Star Wars mean to you? When did you first see Star Wars? When did you realize that you were a Star Wars fan? Everyone has a story and we want to hear yours! Use the hashtag #MyStarWarsStory on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter and let’s celebrate together!”
