The hype around the upcoming new Star Wars film is getting more intense, as we’re just a little more than a week ahead of the debut. Throughout the year we’ve been given little glances into the film, with Disney dropping hints here and there on what we can expet. Also, throughout the year, brands have been picking up on the 38-year old franchise and collaborating to create capsule collections to celebrate this epic space opera. But just like the SG50 fever this year, some were pretty dope, and some just looked like they didn’t even try putting in the effort. As for :CHOCOOLATE, an in-house brand under Hong Kong fashion conglomerate I.T, they’re known for their unpretentious everyday wear that doesn’t compromise on fit and style, effortless marrying “mass” and “prestige”. And they’ve done so with their latest collaboration to celebrate the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens next week. The collection sees familiar Star Wars characters like Darth Vader, R2D2 and C-3PO, along with the First Order Stormtrooper, Kylo Ren, BB-8 and the X-Wing Fighter from the upcoming film across a series of sweaters, printed tees and hoodies. Also, if you’re a collector, you might wanna et your hands on the limited edition 1/6th scale Stormtrooper (Copper Chrome Version) Collective Figure exclusively offered in partnership with Hot Toys.

:CHOCOOLATE | STAR WARS Crossover Collection, $49.90-$299. Available :CHOCOOLATE Bugis Junction and orchardgateway from tomorrow (10 Dec).
