A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, an epic fight between the forces of the universe began. And throughout the years, we’ve gone to the cinemas, watching the story of Star Wars unfold. We’ve enjoyed the adventure of the OG trio of Luke, Leia, and Han; we were gripped as Darth Vader’s tragic romance unfolded; and we cried with Chewie as Han faced his death. And now, for us who grew up as the universe expanded, an era finally ends with the premiere of The Rise of Skywalker, the space saga’s final instalment. So, as the surviving Resistance faces the First Order once more, be sure you’re well-equipped before the final battle commences. Mark this milestone in the space saga in style with these Star Wars fashion and beauty collabs.
