I’ve already written a post displaying how similar Kylo Ren and Anakin Skywalker are to each other but once again I’ve found another blaring example of how the creative minds behind this current trilogy are pushing that idea in even the way Kylo dresses.
In The Last Jedi we see Kylo Ren sporting a new outfit, one with a shorter vest rather than the long robe he was wearing in The Force Awakens over a long sleeved shirt. There’s also a parting near the bottom of the vest which makes it a tad bit fancier than a simple vest.
Anakin Skywalker has the same style going on. The long sleeved shirt, the vest with that fancy parting at the bottom beneath the belt. Even the pants and the nearly-knee high boots. It’s kind of astonishing.
Another incredibly similar design is the shoulder area in their outfits.
As you can see the vest’s shoulder area is a square design that is a few inches from the actual shoulder.
And here you can see that same trend with the vest’s shoulder region. Of course, he’s not a Jedi so the actual design isn’t entirely the same but the fundamental look is.
And to prove even further my point that The Last Jedi was really focusing on his similarities to Anakin Skywalker here’s a picture of his outfit in The Force Awakens.
Kylo Ren, in The Force Awakens, resembled Darth Vader more than he did Anakin Skywalker.
It’s one of the reasons why at the time I thought he was kind of a Darth Vader rip-off.
It’s kind of strange because it’s as if Kylo Ren is reliving Anakin’s story but backwards. In The Force Awakens he was Darth Vader. In The Last Jedi he’s Anakin Skywalker when Anakin was conflicted and eventually turned to the dark side. In Episode IX will we see him as Anakin when he was a fullblown Jedi knight (meaning he’ll turn good?)
This is just a recent observation that I wanted to share you with and I hope you enjoyed. I thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day. May the Force be with you.
