Scarf season is officially upon us. Now, thanks to this gorgeous apparel from Emma J. Shipley, bundling up for the weather can also mean expressing your inner dark side. 

The graphic artist teamed up with Disney UK to produce these Star Warsinspired luxury scarves ahead of the release of The Force Awakens in December. They feature scenes of storm troopers, AT-AT Walkers, and the Millennium Falcon set against an ominous Darth Vader silhouette. All the art comes from Shipley’s original designs, which she painstakingly hand-draws in pencil.

She drew her inspiration from the Star Wars posters of the late '70s and early '80s, the colors used in the original trilogy, and the battles from the films. The designs—which come available in different color palettes and styles—were printed onto the cotton or wool scarves and finished by hand. This high-level craftsmanship is reflected in the steep price, which runs up to $325 per scarf. If you can’t afford to wear the art around your neck, she has prints available on her website for less than $40. Also be on the lookout for a collection of Star Wars–inspired ties and pocket-squares from the artist coming soon to a galaxy near you.
