This Artist Upcycles Louis Vuitton Bags Into 'Star Wars' Sculptures & They're the Coolest Thing You'll See Today

Star Wars Louis Vuitton sculptures: when nerdy meets boujee, in a combination that seems like it would only be real in a galaxy far far away. Artist Gabriel Dishaw is “upcycling” Louis Vuitton bags and luggage, as well as well as braided wire, computer chips and electronic material, to create some of the movie franchise’s most iconic masks, including the ones worn by Darth Vadar, Kylo Ren and all of the stormtroopers. 

Dishaw isn’t just giving some of the series’ most notorious villains a fashionable update––he’s following his unique passion and artistic style. He explained in a post on his website, “My passion for working with metal and mechanical objects has been essential in the evolution of my art. It provides me an avenue to express myself in a way that brings new life to materials such as typewriters, adding machines and old computers – technology that would normally end up in a landfill. My mission is to create dialogue and help find creative, environmentally sound ways of re-purposing e-waste.”

The pieces speak for themselves. If you’ve ever thought that there is nothing better than a traditional Louis Vuitton, just wait till you see these. 

If your Speedy bag suddenly pales in comparison, Dishaw is selling his unique sculptures. However, as you can imagine, between his designer materials and artistic ability, these don’t come cheaply. While some are already sold out, you won’t be able to get one of these masks for under $2,500. Lets hope that they come with The Force already included. 

What do you think the chances are of convincing Disney to give some of the most beloved characters a luxury makeover?
