Darth Maul, Sith Robes
The Phantom Menace

Darth Maul, the terrifying villain of Episode I, wears black, layered, kimono-style underrobes. The costume has varying lengths of split tabs, allowing for a great deal of movement during his extensive, complex fight sequences. Its many shoulder to ankle length circular pieces were sunray-pleated, creating a narrow silhouette when motionless—but in combat swirling out into a fully circular shape, like a fabric Shuriken (Ninja throwing blade) cutting through the air.

On its most basic level, Star Wars represents a conflict of Light versus Dark. Jedi knights, including Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi, and the Sith Lords Darth Vader, Darth Sidious, and Darth Maul personify good and evil on a cosmic scale.
