I’ve seen some unattractive Star Wars merchandise over the years. I’ve seen ties featuring Jar Jar’s face front and center, vests with hideous graphic prints, and some downright criminal use of the opening crawl. These designs by Comme des Garçon are right up there with some of the tackiest and ugliest apparel I’ve laid my eyes on. The colors, the patterns, the poorly printed Yoda – it’s all horrible. The button down shirts might be so bad that they’re good though. Silly can be good.
The best part about these uh, interesting designs is that they’re crazy expensive! The cheapest item, a t-shirt, is $117 (the most expensive is over $400) . Yeah. I can’t wrap my head around it. I would think the only way these could be successful is if they’re being sold somewhere that has never had access to Star Wars branded clothing. Yipes.
Check out the rest of the designs after the break.
