Kipling is launching a limited-edition unisex collection of handbags, backpacks, and accessories inspired by Lucasfilm Ltd.’s Star Wars film franchise.
Coinciding with the release of Solo: A Star Wars Story, the 19-piece collection includes backpacks, duffles, handbags, pencil and pen cases, pouches, wristlets and collectible keychains. The assortment features iconic Star Wars characters such as R2-D2, Stormtroopers and Darth Vader, along with glow-in-the-dark, metallic and reflective elements, which take inspiration from the Star Wars galaxy and represent the spirit of the light side and dark side. Prices range from $15 to $169.
“Our team was incredibly inspired during the design process for this collection,” said lead designer Christine Lee. “Star Wars fans are so diverse, spanning all ages, genders and styles, so we wanted to create a collection that offers something for everyone. With this in mind, we designed a variety of styles including metallic backpacks that subtly nod to the iconic heroes and villains, along with wristlets and pouches featuring fan-favorite characters.”
“For so many, the love of Star Wars is rooted in a sense of nostalgia and adventure, giving it a natural synergy with our brand,” added Nina Flood, president of Kipling North America. “We are thrilled to bring the iconic Star Wars franchise to life for Kipling and Star Wars fans alike.”
The Star Wars collection by Kipling is now available on Kipling-usa.com and in over 35 Kipling stores and in department stores where the brand is sold.
