Oh those crazy French! Pass by the windows at Colette this week and you’ll see images of Wonder Woman, Batman, and the Joker with clothing to look just like them. One could say this culture that loves to dress up just tapped into a flight of fancy but the store is celebrating the 75th anniversary of DC Comics by Warner Brothers. So Madame Colette, whom I spotted thrifting in NYC just last week, wants us to buy white studded gloves created by Karl Lagerfeld, inspired by the Green Hornet or a red, white, and blue micro mini dress by Sonia Rykiel to look like Wonder Woman (900 euro/$1106.)
Okay, so one might be more inspired to head to Ricky’s in NYC for a costume instead, but we’re liking the Batman tees by Balmain (seen above) and the illustrated head of Batman on a dog’s body by Lanvin. A guy with a punk attitude could really wear these with some Hudson jeans, but you’d have to be a literal badass to pull it off. And, a certain kind of bon vivant could rock the gloves! For all else, as in the Superman or Wonder Woman dresses, a girl would have to be pretty bloody pissed drunk! Windows and merch are up at Colette until June 5th.
