Who would have thought that it would take "Star Wars" to make Rodarte insanely wearable?

The Mulleavy sisters, Laura and Kate, have presented ethereal collection after ethereal collection that are as much a mix of eccentricity as they are high fashion. This, of course, makes it difficult for the general population to pull off.

For fall 2014, the sisters also went out of this world, but by drawing inspiration from the beloved original "Star Wars" trilogy, which played a part in their childhoods.

"Things that you would imagine you want to wear when you were younger, or even just our understanding of the time period we grew up in," Laura Mulleavy told Women's Wear Daily.

Kate was born in 1979 and Laura in 1980, which was really seen in the 37-look collection that featured heavily glittered coats, scarves and hats. The side-swept bangs that had a little flip at the end was a very current take on '70s hair. Turtlenecks, high-waisted flowy pants and gold necklaces rounded out the collection.

For die-hard "Star Wars" fans, the show was an opportunity to spot where little bits and pieces of the movie were used.

Look closely, you'll also find hidden Ewoks. The robot duo, C3PO and R2D2, in Tatooine are featured on a dress together, so are the Death Star from "Return of the Jedi," Yoda on Dagobah and the twin suns of Tatooine.

A harder-to-miss reference is a checkered coat that resembles one Princess Leia wore on Endor on her mission to disable the Death Star's shields. This is definitely what she would wear if that movie were being filmed today.

And maybe she will if she makes an appearance in the upcoming J.J. Abrams sequel, which is slated to be released summer 2015.
