Illustrator John Woo’s playful He Wears It series embraces the forces of fashion, putting the Star Wars cast in contemporary brands. The illustration series pairs characters with Woo’s favorite brands, carefully selected to match the look and personality of the different characters. He says the hardest to design for was Jar Jar: “I had to totally change his image and still had to match his face and body.” If you are more of a Star Wars nerd than a fashion nerd, it’s a mini-education to look up each of the brands that Woo picked.

Hong Kong Based Designer and Illustrator John Woo
“Based on fictional characters and mainly highlighted for his Star Wars renditions, John Woo looks to present outfits from different seasons in a quirky and funny medium. The illustrations would be fantastic on their own but to mix it with well known labels and menswear brands, pretty genius if you ask me. One of the main reasons I thought of showcasing these was because you can now purchase prints at John’s Etsy shop, definitely worth heading that way to check them out. Could look great hanging on a wall. I’ve placed some of my favourites above and below.
