May 1977. When the original Star Wars blasted its way into theaters, the space adventure launched the summer blockbuster era, and its pack of roguish heroes earned fervent fans of all ages.
From their daring deeds to their exotic threads, Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia and Han Solo became instant icons.
In advance of next month’s return to a “galaxy far, far away” with The Force Awakens, 225 shows you how to feel like a hero without looking like you’re at a costume party.
Whether exploring the outdoors, kicking back in the bar or turning heads at a black-tie gala, may the Force of fashion be with you … always.
