Levi’s Just Launched a $498 Chewbacca Trucker Jacket

Where are fashion’s priorities? How sustainability will fare post pandemic is just one of many open questions. Join SJ on July 15 at 11 am for a webinar on how the crisis will affect future sourcing decisions and how to better measure progress.

It’s been an exciting few months for Star Wars fans, as the saga’s ninth and final film premiered Friday. The hype leading up to it spurred a number of celebratory partnerships, including a highly successful collaboration with Levi’s, which consisted of denim jackets, hoodies, sweatshirts and long-sleeved and short-sleeved T-shirts featuring themed graphics and recognizable movie quotes.

And now, the partnership is back with an extra special, limited-edition garment for collectors and fans alike: a Chewbacca trucker jacket.

Demand is sure to be high for the piece, as Levi’s only created 60 of its kind from its Authorized Vintage Line, which uses Made-in-America vintage Levi’s Trucker jackets from the ’80s and ’90s. Using a special embroidery technique and hand work, each piece is uniquely crafted to feature a 3D design of the character inspired by a still from “Star Wars: A New Hope,” an earlier film in the saga.

This isn’t the first time a movie or show has made its way into the fashion world. Pop culture has cropped up in a number of collections, including a “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air”-themed line from actor Will Smith and a “Friends” 25th anniversary collection from Ralph Lauren.

The jacket launched on Friday, timed to the anticipated premiere of “Star Wars: The Rise of The Skywalker.” The jacket retails for $498, and is available for purchase on the Levi’s app.
