Far, Far Away Light vs. Dark
The second print features all the same characters, as well as the Death Star and Millennium Falcon, against a lighter background with colorful flowers.
Far, Far Away Medallion
The third print is made of circular “medallions” featuring blue for the light side and red for the dark side. Characters, ships, and symbols are at the center of each medallion, with rows of iconic imagery around them.
In an interview with StarWars.com, Kerry Hasselbach, VP of design at Vera Bradley, said, “We paid very close attention to maintaining authentic Star Wars details, depicting characters and the colors attached to them as accurately as possible, while balancing the color placements throughout the print to ensure the handbags and accessories are joyful and wearable.”
Designer Kat Kovac added, “I wanted to give the longtime Star Wars diehards something that they would love because of all the extra details that tie back to the original Star Wars trilogy, but also give the new or casual fans something to inspire them.”
“When thinking of the original Star Wars trilogy in terms of color, there are two sets of things that come to mind,” Kovac said. “First, the bright saturated colors of the lightsabers, and second, the rich range of gray metallic hues of the ships. Using gray hues helped me capture the idea of both the exterior and interiors of the ships and let the bright colors really pop and feel like they have the glow of a lightsaber.”
The “Star Wars” Vera Bradley collection will be released on May the 4th in stores and online.
