May The Force Be With You: Philips Star Wars Shaver

Now I am going to admit something that I am sure is sacrilege. I am not a big Star Wars fan – sure I like it but not enough to have seen anymore than the original series of films. Maybe I am just down with Star Wards OG? Either way, fan or not, you should keep reading.

Philips has launched a new line of series in collaboration with Star Wars with a line of shavers. Now this isn’t some gimmicky collab where they just put the name on the outside of the box. The new line of Philips Star Wars shavers were actually re-designed. And they are pretty sweet. Even as a non fan I want them.The collection has four models ranging – SW175 (the Storm Trooper), SW3700 (the R2-D2), SW6700, and the SW9700. Ranging in prices from $79-$269. Now the SW6700 and SW9700 are the superior shavers that can groom and trim and much much more, but I love the Storm Trooper and R2-D2 I love that they are both minimalist and white in colour – hard to find these days but blends in well in my all white bathroom. Plus who could resist their little faces. And they work well for most of your daily needs.

Christian has been a cultural and style junkie since the age of 6; while most kids were swiping cookies, he was swiping his grandfathers' Patek Philippe. Raised to appreciate art, fashion,design and  literature (yeah, this one actually reads) by a single mother fondly called Jackie-O. Christian quickly went from childhood cultural capital thief to academia protégé. Referred to as the cat's meow by some, too clever by half by others, Christian eschewed the academic life and ran away to join the circus -the fashion circus. Several well-appointed positions later and a career on the rise would be most people's dream but it was time to say fuck off and start all over again.
