New Her Universe previews!

Her Universe has released the first photoshoot image from the upcoming The Force Awakens collection for Hot Topic – Captain Phasma-inspired jacket and leggings! Ashley Eckstein gave us a preview of this outfit last weekend, as she wore both the jacket and leggings during her visit to WonderCon. Ashley has also previewed a women’s jacket inspired by Poe’s/Finn’s jacket from The Force Awakens! All three of these items will be coming soon to Hot Topic – I can’t wait to see the rest of the collection! I’m always excited when Her Universe teams up with Hot Topic – they can ship internationally, allowing fans around the world to get their hands on the new range. Ashley has also confirmed the Poe/Finn jacket will be available in plus sizes 0 to 5 – all of the apparel in the recent Her Universe x Star Wars release were made in sizes up to 5X, so hopefully this new collection will be too.

The Captain Phasma jacket is definitely on my wish list – I wonder if it has printed lining like the earlier Darth Vader jacket? Here’s the description of the outfit from Her Universe –

Sneak peek of the new upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens collection, coming soon to Hot Topic, designed by last year’s fashion show winners – Leetal Platt and Kelly Cercone. Captain Phasma jacket (designed by Leetal) and Captain Phasma leggings (designed by Kelly).

Leetal Platt and Kelly Cercone were the winners from last year’s Her Universe Fashion Show, held at San Diego Comic Con. Entries for this years event are now open – read more about the contest and how you can enter here – Her Universe Fashion Show 2016. I’m really hoping to see some Star Wars-inspired designs this year – and while I can’t attend in person (hopefully one day!), the upcoming ‘Her Universe Fashion Show’ reality series will be available to view on-line at Comic Con HQ! The series will follow the contestants as they create their original designs leading up to the runway show – it’s great that the contestants have more time to show off their talents, I can’t wait to watch, and be inspired 🙂
