Columbia Sportswear Star Wars: Empire Crew Parka

Columbia Sportswear is unveiling the Star Wars: Empire Crew Parka – a limited edition jacket inspired by the original cast and crew while filming the iconic ice planet Hoth scenes of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back. The themed jackets will be available on columbia.com/StarWars starting at 12:01am EST on Dec. 7 and in-store at select Columbia-branded retail locations in the U.S., Canada, Europe, China, Hong Kong, Japan and Korea. This limited edition parka is a unisex style that will be sold for $500 USD, while supplies last.

Select U.S. stores are also carrying a handful of parkas signed by Mark Hamill, the actor who played Luke Skywalker in the film. Fans can purchase a signed jacket for $1980 USD, and all proceeds of that sale will be donated to charity.

Be a Part of Star Wars History

Nearly 40 years ago in the frigid wilderness of Norway, a small group of cast and crew filmed several of the most recognizable scenes from Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back. They needed serious winter gear to help protect them from icy winds, whiteout blizzards and sub-zero temperatures encountered on location while filming the iconic Hoth scenes. To help address the weather-related challenges, producers arranged for each member of the Norway team to receive outerwear that included a colorful insulated parka for the multi-week shoot. Created to stand up to the cold conditions, that jacket features a unique design that currently make it one of the most sought-after items among Star Wars collectors. Only a handful of those original jackets exist today, but now fans can go behind rebel lines—and deep behind-the-scenes—with Columbia’s limited edition Star Wars: Empire Crew Parka.

A Vintage Look Featuring Modern Technology

The Star Wars: Empire Crew Parka honors the original design while incorporating Columbia’s weather-defying technologies to help protect against extreme winter conditions. The waterproof, breathable and critically seam-sealed outer layer acts like the Echo Base shield generator to protect against the elements, while the Omni-Heat thermal-reflective lining and insulation will keep you as warm as a Wookiee. The jacket features a removable, adjustable hood with removable faux-fur trim, two-way collar, ribbed comfort cuffs, wrist zips and multifunctional pockets.

Columbia’s designers worked closely with Lucasfilm Ltd. to capture and incorporate authentic details from the crew jackets that include the bold blue design, shoulder stripes for heightened visibility in blizzard conditions, the fiery Darth Vader chest patch developed using original artwork, Star Wars logos, and a customizable name plate on the chest pocket. Paying homage to the location where the cast and crew braved chilling temperatures to film these historic scenes, the lining of the jacket includes the coordinates of the Hardangerjøkulen Glacier in Norway.

Fans interested in taking this experience to the next galaxy – or level – can purchase one of only 30 jackets signed by Luke Skywalker actor, Mark Hamill. Columbia is working with Mark Hamill to raise money for education initiatives that are very close to him. These signed jackets will sell for MSRP of $1,980 USD – a nod to the film’s release year – with all proceeds going to college access programs and scholarships. These coveted signed jackets will be sold only at Columbia-branded retail locations in New York, NY; Buena Vista, FL; Downtown Portland Flagship, OR; and Seattle, WA.

Vans Joins Forces With Marvel

Sharing a rich heritage rooted in creative expression and empowerment, Vans and Marvel join forces once again to launch their largest collaboration to date. Celebrating the “Off The Wall” Super Heroes of the Marvel Universe, Vans introduces an extensive range of co-branded footwear, apparel and accessories featuring an all-star roster of iconic personas including The Avengers, Black Panther, Deadpool, Iron Man, Hulk and more! The Vans x Marvel collection is an epic collaboration for the ages, assembling a massive line-up of 70-plus styles for fans of all ages.

The Vans x Marvel collection kicks off with a selection of footwear inspired by The Avengers. Representing the Super Hero squad, a custom Old Skool has been outfitted with a unique color story to symbolize key members; a vivid blue toe-box and shield graphic heel counter are a nod to Captain America while the shoe tongue has been reimagined to mimic a piece of Iron Man’s high-tech suit of armor. Finishing details include a silver leather wing Sidestripe that takes styling cues from the all-mighty Thor and a brightly colored outsole that don Hulk’s signature green and purple tones. The Authentic presents a more subtle aesthetic, showcasing additional Marvel Super Heroes such Black Panther, Black Widow and Spider-Man in an allover print that also matches back to a selection of men’s t-shirts, hat, sandal and sock options as well as a special checkered apparel pack just for women. 

Black Panther, Hulk and Spider-Man are seen once again in the collection with their own dedicated capsules. Stylized with heavy-duty ripstop, claw-like hardware and embossed embellishments, the Black Panther Sk8-Hi references King T’Challa’s vibranium suit. Black Panther makes another appearance on the Vans x Marvel short sleeve tee and Torrey jacket, combining classic comic book artwork with vintage Vans graphics. The Classic Slip-On showcases Hulk’s amazing strength as his feet burst through the checkerboard pattern of Vans’ cherished lace-free sneaker. Hulk fans can rejoice in building an incredible head-to-toe look, as he has his own hat, t-shirt and sock styles while She Hulk makes her debut on the Vans x Marvel Pull Over Hoodie and short sleeve tee. Spider-Man’s superhuman abilities are on full display across the Classic Slip-On sneaker and Slide-On sandal while his spider web motifs and core colors influence the design of additional men’s, women’s and kid’s apparel and accessory pieces. Like a true arch nemesis, Venom counters Spider-Man’s vivid colors with a small-yet-sinister apparel offering that features the symbiotic Super Villain’s menacing grin. Deadpool makes a surprise cameo in the Vans x Marvel collection with a special colorway of the Sk8-Hi. Detailed in durable red and black leather, Vans’ coveted high-top is inspired by Deadpool’s suit, with weapons such as the katana and ninja stars embedded in its build for added protection against foes. 

The women of Marvel present their own ensembles within the Vans x Marvel collection, showcasing upgraded materials, rare patterns and signature colors across the assortment of women’s apparel, accessories and footwear. The Classic Slip-On pays homage to Black Widow with sleek nylon uppers and a beveled outsole in an all-black colorway like her bodysuit. A rubberized Black Widow logo is outlined in red for a subtle contrast and ballistic canvas quarter panels put the finishing touches on this stealthy style. Captain Marvel’s heroic hues empower the Sk8-Hi with red suede and blue canvas uppers while gold covers the Sidestripe and accents the back-heel counter with a cut-out eight-point star, Captain Marvel’s cherished emblem. Captain Marvel makes her apparel debut on a pullover, ringer tee and crew tee in her own “Off The Wall” logo pose; her suit’s colors and iconography inspire brand new backpack and crew sock accessories. The women of Marvel team up for a special, graphic-focused capsule that includes the Authentic, Slide-On sandal and an assortment of women’s apparel and accessories. The action-packed allover print features memorable heroines such as Medusa, Scarlet Witch, Storm and more!

Kids and toddlers can get in on the action with their own apparel and footwear styles from the Vans x Marvel collection. Highlights from the assortment includes kids-only footwear styles including the Sk8-Hi Zip featuring Spider-Man, Authentic featuring the women of Marvel pattern in full color and the Classic Slip-On showcasing Baby Groot across Vans’ iconic checkerboard motif.
