Musterbrand, a fashion and apparel label that translates games and movies into high quality wearable products, recently released a Knight of Ren cardigan for men and will be releasing a Rey knitted sweater for women in January 2017. The sweater made its debut at New York Comic Con 2016.
The Knight of Ren is a heavy knit, hooded cardigan based on the design of Kylo Ren’s outfit from Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The character’s overall design inspired the textured front/back and the rippled sleeves. The button-down cardigan also features a Kylo Ren badge in the lower left area by the waist.
The upcoming Rey knitted sweater is a unique wrap top based on Rey’s outfit. Her garment’s crossed front and arm wraps inspired the crossed design on the front of the top as well as the pin-tuck structure on the sleeves. As a final touch, the upper arm sleeve on the left features a raised silicon badge of the Resistance.
Both sweaters are stunning, and what impresses me most about the Kylo Ren cardigan is that women can also wear it! I don’t think the same can be said about male fans wanting to wear the Rey inspired top, however. It’d be great to get to a point in geek fashion where one character isn’t reserved for one gender. That said, Musterbrand does create high quality products, so both men and women will have no problem enjoying these beautifully crafted garments.
The Knight of Ren cardigan is $149.99 and the Rey Knitted Sweater is $99.99.
Many thanks to The Kessel Runway for notifying fans about the pre-order.
