Columbia Sportswear and Lucasfilm have launched a limited-edition Rogue One: A Star Wars Story jacket line with three new releases.
Columbia Sportswear has unveiled three limited-edition jackets inspired by Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The collection represents the brand’s first movie merchandise collaboration, and will be available in limited quantities across its website and retail locations from 9 December 2016.
The high-performance releases draw unique design inspiration from three main characters from said franchise—Sergeant Jyn Erso, Captain Cassian Andor, and the Imperial Death Trooper. Each selection captures special design details connected to the character as well as allegiance in the film.
Columbia Sportswear worked closely with Disney Consumer Products and Interactive Media to ensure the jackets are an authentic representation for discerning fans. Constructed with the marque’s Tested Tough promise, each jacket will stand up to the cold and wet weather of the winter season.
Crafted of stretch twill cotton, the Jyn Erso Rebel Jacket (pictured) has rugged leather-look details on the sleeves and throughout. The Captain Cassian Andor Rebel Parka offers a Sherpa-lined hood with detachable faux fur trim detail. Imperial Death Trooper Jacket is waterproof, while fully seam-sealed.
“Star Wars is arguably the most globally recognisable film franchise in the world. This Lucasfilm outerwear collaboration provides an unparalleled opportunity to showcase our brand and premier technologies,” said Joe Boyle, SVP of Brand Merchandising and Design at Columbia Sportswear.
