The Super Friends have gone sartorial. They’ve moved their headquarters temporarily from the Hall of Justice…to Rue St. Honore.
Holy Bedazzler, Batman – Colette is selling duds that will make ordinary civilians feel as if they have style super powers – or at least will give them a cocktail soiree conversation starter.
The Parisian retail mecca has teamed up with Warner Bros. to celebrate 75 years of DC Comics. Given that the limited edition clothing and accessories collection was created by famed French designers with the powers to cut, stitch, embellish and save the world from boring basics, I expected creativity, not costumes.
It’s more kitsch than couture, but fun to look at nonetheless.
I still want the bracelets…sigh.
Green Lantern was always my fave, too. Why, you ask? Hello! He had a big green ring…I was mesmerized by shiny baubles at a very young age.
They are still a little cartoony but I’ll take them over the rest. After all, every woman knows that stilettos automatically give you super powers.
