Columbia Sportswear officially announced that they will be releasing a brand new Star Wars outerwear collection tomorrow, 8th December.
Thanks to Frankie Petraroli (in New York) who posted on the Facebook group IGrewUpStarWars.com we have some images of these jackets in the window of the Columbia Sportswear retail store, and we’re loving the vintage carded figure vibe: –
The new limited edition three piece Echo Base Collection from Columbia Sportswear, priced at $400 each, will be available in limited quantities at 12:01am EST on December 8th via the website www.columbia.com/starwars. Columbia branded retail locations will also sell these intergalactic jackets when those stores open that day.
In addition to the three standard release Echo Base pieces, Columbia has partnered with Harrison Ford on a special limited-edition dark brown jacket:
After consulting the Star Wars archives, Columbia drew inspiration from the original on set Han Solo dark brown jacket worn on planet Hoth. In honor of this epic film, Columbia produced an extremely limited run of the dark brown Han Solo Archive Edition parkas (MSRP: $1980). Further, Columbia has collaborated with Harrison Ford in this endeavor to raise funds for Conservation International, a global organization dedicated to the protection of nature. Harrison hand-signed each of these brown Han Solo Archive Edition parkas, and Columbia will donate 100% of the proceeds from their sale to Conservation International.
We strongly suggest getting in early to scure one of these awesome looking jackets, as we expect them to disappear in record time – happy hunting!
