The debate over which Star Wars movie is the best will probably rage on after all of us have died, but it’s clear to me that one film alone can lay claim to the coolest outfits: The Empire Strikes Back. And it’s that film that serves as the inspiration for the new Columbia Echo Base collection.
The Columbia Echo Base collection is made up of three different winter outerwear pieces familiar to any fan of The Empire Strikes Back. There’s Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa’s Echo Base Jackets, and Han Solo’s Echo Base Parka – vintage Han always has to set himself apart from the group. All three pieces are outfitted with Omni-Heat reflective technology, supposedly able to keep the wearer warm even in the icy climes of the planet Hoth.
The Columbia Echo Base collection will be available from Columbia on December 8th, with all pieces priced at $400 a pop. Stay tuned for more info and browse the collection right here.
