A preview of the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens fashion collection from Her Universe and Hot Topic debuted at WonderCon 2016 during the Her Universe Fashion Show Update panel–and it was amazing!

The preview video only lasted a few seconds and featured seven unique looks inspired by the main characters of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. It also appears the collection is divided into dark side and light side looks.

“I know that’s just a tease,” Ashley Eckstein said at the panel. “But I’m happy to tell you that this collection is coming out very soon. It will be out in mid April just in time for you to have something to wear on May 4th.”

Eckstein also stepped off the stage to show off the Captain Phasma jacket and leggings, which were designed by Leetal Platt and Kelly Cercone, respectively.

“But trust me, the Finn Jacket, the Rey Cardigan, the Kylo Ren Dress, the BB-8 Dress–it’s incredible!”

Fashionably Nerdy managed to grab some video footage of the sneak preview and here are some blurry (yet awesome) screen captures of the collection. It looks like there are at least seven items in the collection and the ones that stand out the most are the Captain Phasma Jacket, the Rey Cardigan, and the Finn Jacket.

This collection looks absolutely stunning, so I can’t wait to see it when it comes out in select Hot Topic stores and online nationwide.

Make sure to follow Her Universe on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook for further updates.

Also, here’s the audio from the video footage captured by Fashionably Nerdy.
