The capsule collection was designed to coincide with the release of “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” which hits theaters on Dec. 15.
Marcus Wainwright, chief executive officer, founder and creative director of Rag & Bone, said, “Working with ‘Star War’ Lucasfilm and Disney was a dream come true for me personally and all of us at Rag & Bone. Seeing the response from our customers and ‘Star Wars’ fans alike was not surprising, [but] it was epic, nonetheless.”
