Just in time for Summer, Kipling and Star Wars have joined forces to launch a special edition 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, unisex collection includes backpacks, duffels, handbags, pencil and pen cases, pouches, wristlets and collectible key chains. 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. Lead designer, Christine Lee explains, “Our team was incredibly inspired during the design process for this collection. 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 subtle nod to the iconic heroes and villains, along with wristlets and pouches featuring fan-favorite characters.” The Star Wars Collection by Kipling will be available on Kipling-usa.com and in over 35 Kipling stores and in department stores where Kipling is sold beginning on April 25, 2018, with a special pre-sale on Macys.com starting April 22, 2018. Could this be Kipling's most epic collection, ever? We'll let you decide.
