I’m not a huge Star Wars fan (I was only at that Star Wars art auction by association, I swear!), but after seeing the Adidas Originals Star Wars collab pieces in real life, I can finally say I am a fan of the fashions that have been spinning off, decades after the original trilogy came out! That Marc Ecko business was interesting, but also delightfully tacky – and you don’t see me pining over my virgin trip to Hooter’s.
Lucas Film actually did a special edit of the cantina scene to promote the collection:
“I don’t like you either fool!” – Sometimes I wish I could be Snoop Dogg, with my chameleon-like versatility in cultural relevance. He’s still my number one pick for GPS voice.
Does this mean that one day Adidas will do a Princess Leia sports-inspired bikini? I don’t know, but I can think of where to find a few ladies who’d be down to demo the goods. (See you in July, Comic-Con.)
