Pre-orders are up and open! Back in January, Elhoffer Design unveiled a Galactic Queen collection inspired by Padmé Amidala. The sketches included ponchos, cardigans, a dolman, and an oversized sweater, and out of the 6 pieces originally seen, two of them are now available for pre-order.
I know what some of you are thinking: “I can just pre-order it later or buy it once it comes in.”
For Galactic Fashion‘s next episode, coming out on February 22, I spoke with Catherine Elhoffer about the importance of pre-ordering. Basically, if she doesn’t meet a minimum order to hand over to the factory, then the product won’t be made. Thankfully, both Padmé inspired products are so popular that they surpassed the 50% mark in sales, allowing her to go forward with the production process. Some of her other pre-orders from other collections weren’t so lucky, and you can hear more about that later this month.
The Galactic Twilight Dolman, which is based off of the blue velvet robe in Star Wars: Attack of the Clones, comes in two sizes: XS-L and XL-3X. The one pictured on the dress form is XS-L.
For girls who normally wear XL, like I do, here’s what Catherine had to say about sizing, “This shrug fits like a dream. I’m normally an XL but wear the sample XS-L. The plus size just has more fabric in the back and front to make the swoop bigger. If you’re an XL, you can still get the smaller size.”
It’s currently priced at $55.
The Galactic Picnic Cardigan, which is based off of the picnic gown also from Star Wars: Attack of the Clones, is a button front cropped cardigan with 3/4 sleeves. For an extra $25, you can have an extra detail added to the cardigan.
“There’s also an add on purchase you can get to have ribbon flowers hand sewn onto the front body,” Catherine wrote on Instagram. “They add an extra depth to the cardi, and also make it unique as each one will be done by hand!”
It’s currently priced at $50.
