Surely you’ve set aside some savings at the beginning of the year to get your hands on everything Star Wars, especially since we’re about a month away from the release of the highly-anticipated new Star Wars film, The Force Awakens. You might have already bought the cute smart device-controlled BB-8 toy from Toys “R” Us, along with all the other collectibles that was launched a few months back, or maybe you’re still on the hunt on the Internet for the best replica of Kylo Ren’s unique cross-guard lightsaber. Whatever it is, the paraphernalia will just keep coming, and we will forever be at the mercy of all things Star Wars.
Apart from the usual figurines, toys and collectibles, limited edition collaborations with fashion brands are also a staple in the Star Wars universe. This season, Californian-based watch and accessories company Nixon has created a collection that will let us wear our Star Wars obsession on the streets with pride. The first drop they’ve aptly called “The Dark Side release” sees a curated assortment of Stormtrooper and Imperial Pilot inspired watches, bags, wallets and belts; perfect to wear out on the debut of the Star Wars: The Force Awakens film on 17 December. Some of the watches feature custom solid steel cases with Cerakote™ and custom bezel geometry inspired by the Stormtroopers’ or Imperial Pilot’s utility belts, while the large volume backpacks sees Stormtrooper prints and TIE Fighter lining. You can also go for the wallets if you’d like one that has an embossed Stormtrooper or TIE Fighter pattern on em’.
The Star Wars x Nixon Collection is priced between $95 and $1,058, and is available in limited quantities at Nixon ION and Capitol Piazza.
