The fashion in the new Star Wars movie, Solo: A Star Wars Story, needs to be talked about. Designed by Glyn Dillon and David Crossman, costumes were unlike anything we’ve seen in Star Wars’ past.

For Solo, played by actor Alden Ehrenreich, Dillon and Crossman took inspiration from rock stars and punk bands to match Solo’s edgy persona. Throughout the movie, he was dressed in things like biker boots, leather jackets, and jeans. These elements gave Solo a youthful energy without changing his character. The outfits he wore varied in colors, textures, and prints, but all of them worked to make the most authentic version of Solo, with an added freshness.

For Lando, played by actor, writer, director, comedian, and musician Donald Glover, Dillon and Crossman focused a lot on prints. During one of the scenes, Lando is seen wearing a yellow graphic shirt, patterned with drawings of spaceships, suns, and water. This particular scene was set in a warm jungle planet, so it only seemed right to the directors that he wore a bright, almost Hawaiian-inspired shirt. It perfectly matches Lando’s persona.

With Qi’ra, played by actress Emilia Clarke, the directors wanted to show character growth, development, and a distinct change from when she was a teenager. Like they did for Solo, Dillon and Crossman again took inspiration from rock and punk musicians. In the movie, Qi’ra performs difficult stunts, and her outfits had to match her strength. They also had to allow for movement. She wore leather jackets, dresses, and 1940s-style trousers.

Solo: A Star Wars Story was so high-fashion heavy that even the droids wore costumes. Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s L3-37 robot was not CGI; it was Phoebe costumed by Dillon and Crossman and painted by the visual effects crew.

If you haven’t seen this movie yet, you’re going to want to. And now you know to look out for all the impressive looks.
