The Padmé Amidala collection we’ve always wanted is finally here! Well, sort of.
Elhoffer Design is at it again, creating beautiful garments based on our favorite fictional characters. This time, she designed a 5-piece collection inspired by everyone’s favorite queen and senator, Padmé Amidala.
The collection includes the:
- Galactic Dusk poncho
- Galactic Queen fur edged poncho
- Galactic Twilight dolman
- Galactic Eclipse oversize sweater
- Galactic Sunrise longline cardi
Elhoffer shared the designs on social media to figure out which two (or three) garments she’d tackle first and make available to the fans, and the response was overwhelmingly positive. She received over 600 comments, with fans voicing which garments they’d love to see come to life. In browsing through the responses, it looks like the Galactic Sunrise cardigan was the most popular.
My personal favorites were the Galactic Queen fur edged poncho and the Galactic Eclipse oversize sweater, both of which I could see myself wearing during the cooler parts of the year. Regardless, whichever piece of the collection gets made first, it will—without a doubt—end up in my wardrobe. I have a few Elhoffer Design pieces in my possession, with the Galactic Bromance cardigan on the way. They are made exceptionally well and are worth every penny, so I can’t wait to add these to my growing Elhoffer Design collection, especially because Padmé inspired apparel is something I’ve been dying to see. Unfortunately, no major company has done anything to tap into that amazing on-screen costume collection of hers, so I’m glad Elhoffer Design is paying attention to the fans and giving us what we want when it comes to Star Wars inspired clothing.
UPDATE: Catherine Elhoffer is also making a Picnic Cardigan based on Padmé’s picnic gown from Star Wars: Attack of the Clones.
