Catalogue Note

Donated by George Lucas.

"Star Wars" defined a new vision of the future, epitomised by the shiny white surfaces of the Imperial Stormtroopers' body armour. Objects of popular culture like this often have a potent influence on young creators, and both Jony and Marc recall the impact that the world conjured in "Star Wars" had on them as kids. Even now, they recognise the Stormtrooper armour as extraordinary examples of costume design - but what a distinctly industrial pedigree.
