These Baby Yoda Handbags From Danielle Nicole Are EVERYTHING!
Baby Yoda is having a fashion moment thanks to these positively adorable handbags from Danielle Nicole! This new capsule collection featuring the breakout star of The Mandalorian will be available for pre-order starting this week!
As a recent piece on StarWars.com tells us, Danielle DiFerdinando’s designs beautifully meld the fantasy of Star Wars with the personality of the people that she hops will buy her creations. Danielle says, “I first discovered Star Wars at Star Tours at Disney World in Orlando when I was little girl with my family.” DiFerdinando adds, “I remember going on the ride with my three sisters and our parents and it felt like I was in another galaxy. It was a fantasy escape. It was so fun and it felt so real!” She has found herself thinking back to that entry point often while translating the Child from the screen into accessories for everyday wear. “Whenever you wear the bag, you have that emotional connection of what you experienced when watching that series.”
That’s why when it came to creating this new line, her and her team were meticulous about getting the colors and textures of the characters just right. For the latest design, the Child Plush backpack, , DiFerdinando paid special attention to the shade of green for the character’s face and the well-worn brown and tan of its oversized jacket. “This bag took rounds and rounds of sampling to get it right,” she says.
The finished product is nothing short of delightful and features 3D molded details right down to The Child’s small hands and fingers. There’s even special touches like a soft shimmer to the suede and glitter and shearing on the color that really bring the design to life.
Starting on Thursday, fans of The Mandalorian will have a chance to pre-order the backpack along with a crossbody-style bag in the new collection. When it came to coming up with a style for her designs DiFerdinando said she was drawn to Baby Yoda’s more childlike moments. She explains the importance of this and how it also translates to those who purchase the bags, “Protecting the child and maintaining his innocence is similar to maintaining your own childlike wonder.”
A great example is the bag below featuring the hiding Child. You can see Baby Yoda’s little clawed hands gripping onto the collar of the oversized jacket. It also features fantastic details like the frog zipper charm and other nods to The Mandalorian.
DiFerdinando says she can’t wait to see how fans react to the new collection, “I’m so excited to see people wear their bags on their next adventures,” she says. And she hopes to incorporate the classic characters that first made her fall in love with Star Wars into a future collection.
