This fashion we get: sci-fi inspired fashion, complete with C-3P0 leggings designed by French designer Nicolas Ghesquière of the house of Balenciaga. His creations include Stormtrooper leggings and designs inspired by Tron and The Terminator.
"I was thinking of robotic articulation. Car parts. Droids. A boyish silhouette…" said Nicolas Ghesquière before he was dragged off to sort out a last-minute glitch. Moments later, his incredible futuristic vision was out of the gate: elongated black jackets with a double-layered shoulder line; cyber-goddess dresses jigsawed from patent leather; space-crew shirts with high white collars.
Now that's what we call droid-chic! Link - via A Welsh View
The story takes place "a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away"...
As for my stupid opinion on the fashion, I think it's sort of beautiful, but not practical. It is just a novelty.
Not an original idea. Not even very futuristic, since the film was made 30 years ago. And to nitpick, the story takes place "long, long ago".
