Designer bag company State has released a new limited edition Star Wars backpack collection. Titled ‘Limited Edition – Collection One’, the range includes 6 designs featuring classic Star Wars characters such as Darth Vader, R2-D2, C-3PO, and Stormtroopers.
The collection is based on ‘friendships’, so we see Darth Vader and Stormtroopers, and R2-D2 and C-3PO inspired backpacks in this first collection. As well as designing gorgously stylish bags, State also gives back to children in need –
For every STATE bag purchased, STATE hand-delivers a backpack – packed with essential tools for success – to an American child in need.
The official StarWars.com website spoke to State co-founder Jacq Tatelman about the brand and the new Star Wars collection –
We design all our bags with the intention of combining fashion, sophistication, and fun. We love to make the end user smile, be proud of their bag, and designing Star Wars was no exception to that. We had a great time conceptualizing these bags and how STATE would ultimately do Star Wars. First, we came up with the idea of creating each collection in friendships, since thats such a huge part of both of our brands. Each “friendship” is tied to each other by matching lining and the editorial patch as well as other small details like glow-in-the-dark labels or zipper pullers. We pulled fabrics from our library that really spoke to each classic character and we designed a custom knit fair isle to cover the front of some the bags.
The designer backpacks are priced from US$80.00 to US$345.00 each – State can ship internationally, which is great!
