‘Star Wars’ Characters as Style-Savvy Hipsters


The worlds of geek culture and high fashion collide in He Wears It, a recent series of acrylic paintings by Hong Kong-based designer and illustrator John Woo that replaces the familiar outfits worn by Star Wars characters with designs by cult fashion favorites like Comme des Garçons and APC. While we never figured Darth Vader for the kind of preppy pretty boy who’d feel comfortable rocking Band of Outsiders, we do have to admit that Jar Jar Binks looks might cozy in that getup by Maison Martin Margiela.

Not a Star Wars fan? Woo also has additional fashion-themed prints featuring The Joker, Edward Scissorhands, Rambo, and The T-1000 available for perusal and purchase in his Etsy shop.
