Eleven of the world’s top designers have teamed up to support charity and celebrate the upcoming release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Diane von Furstenberg, Opening Ceremony, Halston, Billy Reid, Cynthia Rowley, Giles Deacon, Ovadia & Sons, Parker, Rag & Bone, Timo Weiland, and Todd Snyder have all released one-of-a-kind designs for the Force 4 Fashion fundraising initiative.
Working in conjunction with Disney and Bloomingdale’s, the group of designers each created stylish ensembles inspired by the soon-to-be-released J.J. Abrams film. Custom-created by each designer with reference to the film’s costume design, the pieces reflect the style and spirit of specific characters.
Standout pieces from this collection of sci-fi fashion include Ovadia and Sons reimagined Storm Trooper armour and Billy Reid’s Chewbacca-inspired brown shearling coat. While old characters were favoured, consumers were also introduced to sartorial styles reflecting new characters to the saga such as Rey and Captain Phasma played by Daisy Ridley and Gwendoline Christie.
The designs will appear in the windows of Bloomingdale’s flagship New York City store until their auction on CharityBuzz. Proceeds of the sale of these unique pieces will benefit the Child Mind Institute which supports mental health care for children.
