NEW YORK (April 30, 2015) – On May 4th the UGG® brand, a division of Deckers Brands (NYSE:DECK), in collaboration with Disney Consumer Products, will be launching the limited edition Star Wars by UGG® collection. Available at select locations worldwide, the collection celebrates the passion, imagination, emotional connection and multi-generational appeal of two iconic brands.

Ranging in price from $100 to $225, the first series in the collection features eight styles for men, women and kids honoring Darth Vader of the original Star Wars trilogy.

“We are thrilled to work with Disney Consumer Products and to be a part of the cultural phenomenon that is Star Wars,” said Vice President Creative Director for the UGG® brand, Leah Larson.  “We are proud to be a part of the Star Wars universe, and much like the UGG® brand, Star Wars has grown to be a part of our lives and families since the seventies.”
