Princess Leia dress (Coming in December.)
Her Universe and Hot Topic launched a new Star Wars collection today! Several of the designs are available now, with more coming next month. And, Ashley Eckstein tells The Daily Dot, there’s another in development.
The items are avaliable in extended sizes, and Hot Topic’s sister shop Torrid will carry some items as well, including a lightsaber dress based on the skirt introduced earlier this year.
Ashley is also encouraging fans to share with the hashtag #MyStarWarsStory:
Not everything from the line is for sale at the moment, but what is can be found online at Hot Topic.
We saw their new jewelry yesterday, but today brings a handful of new clothing items to Her Universe. There’s the Symbol Pattern cardigan, a Darth Vader Knit Pattern dress and a new logo tee – all available in plus sizes as well. And there are new Marvel, Star Trek, Walking Dead and Doctor Who items as well.
Her Universe rolls out new Transformers line. Four shirts, two dresses and a pair of leggings.
And the second new Her Universe licensee is… Transformers? Looks like we’ll get a closer look on Thursday. Does this one excite you at all? Because I feel a resounding sense of ‘meh.’
Her Universe has announced the first wave of their new Marvel line! There’s more coming, including a Loki dress, Ashley Eckstein tells The Daily Dot. A Black Widow hoodie will be available at San Diego Comic Con. And Ashley herself will be voicing Dagger of Cloak and Dagger in the animated Ultimate Spider-Man.
The line is also part of Marvel’s own “Characters and Creators” initiative, which is targeting women and girls. (The new Ms. Marvel is an earlier example.)

My Hero Jewelry Collection
Here’s your first look at the Her Universe boutique at Darth’s Mall (complete with dressing room,) plus the My Hero display and new dresses waiting for buyers at Disney World’s Hollywood Studios for Star Wars Weekends. The new collection we saw last week is debuting there, and most will be available online as well.
The first Weekend of the year begins Friday with guests Ahmed Best, Peter Mayhew, and Vanessa Marshall.
Her Universe will be adding three new licenses this summer, Ashley Eckstein tells Legion of Leia. Aside from Star Wars, Her Universe already has licenses for Doctor Who, Star Trek and The Walking Dead. (Syfy Channel is no longer on their site – expired?) Who do you hope will join them?
The Met Ball is a huge fashion event, and Kirsten Dunst wore one of the Rodarte Star Wars dresses to it. I believe this our first sighting of one of the dresses in the wild. (So to speak.)
UPDATE: Tom and Lorenzo approve! Well, they don’t hate it. It’s something. Fug Girls? (She also made their NYMag gallery.)
Her Universe has added new tops, a 77 Logo tee and a Vintage Poster Racerback tank (both $28,) plus there’s a mystery tee ($10.)
Many of the older items are on sale – most of the t-shirts will only run you only $15, and the Mara and Jaina shirts are both only $16.80.
This is a last chance sale for some of the shirts – and I have to wonder if that means our last chance for the EU ones – and the sale will last through May 5.
At New York Fashion Week yesterday, Rodarte showed several dresses featuring Star Wars stills. The Star Wars dresses were made with the blessing of George Lucas (who was spotted at their show in 2012) and Disney, according to the L.A. Times. They won’t be for sale, but “will be available in the fall for editorial shoots and potential exhibits,” which means we may see them in magazines at the very least. You can get a closer look at the dresses on our Tumblr.
Rodarte is based in L.A. and has done film costumes in the past – for Natalie Portman’s Black Swan, for instance. So when asked about Episode VII, “Who wouldn’t’? I’m sure they are taken care of, but who wouldn’t do it?”
