It’s finally here! Her Universe’s Wonder Woman collection releases today and you’ll even get your new pieces before the film comes out next month. Designed by last year’s Fashion Show winners Jesse Thaxton (friend of the blog! We’re very proud of her!), Hannah Kent, and Camille Falciola, the collection is clearly inspired by both Diana and her forthcoming film. The collection features a tank top, two jackets, a skirt, a romper and two dresses of which one is even reversible. The neatest thing about the collection is that there’s nothing overly standard and even for the seemingly more basic pieces, they tend to have a surprise. (The tank top has the netting with the sword on the back and the costume dress is reversible.) It’s a really nicely done little collection. My personal favorite is the black and gold dress.
You can shop the collection in both standard and plus sizes over at HotTopic.com.
Today (without much if any warning) Her Universe launched a brand new active wear collection at Kohl’s featuring pieces inspired by Batman, Wonder Woman, and Superman. Most pieces in the collection are available in regular and plus sizes. Expect to see the collection slowly start to make its way in stores while plus sizes will likely remain online exclusives. There are some super cute pieces in here and, if the quality is like their previous Avengers collection, it’s good work out gear too. (I’m still a huge fan of the capris and Black Widow sports bra.) For the DC collection, they’re offering a bit more variety with shorts, capris, jackets, sports bras, and multiple styles of tanks/shirts. It’s absolutely worth checking out and, were I betting woman, I’d say this is a good indicator that we’ll be seeing more Wonder Woman inspired pieces from Her Universe for the film’s release… [EDIT: Turns out I was right!]
You can view the entire collection over at Kohl’s.com and a selection of some of the pieces is below. Right now, the collection is on sale for 33% off and you can get an additional 20% off with the code BUYNOW through April 2nd.
It’s a sign of how great Hero Within is that we’ve featured them twice within a year. (We just keep tripping and featuring men’s geek fashion…) On Monday, they announced their brand new Justice League Summer Collection including some fantastic button-down shirts and an even better denim Wonder Woman jacket. The collection is currently available for preorder with expected delivery in May. If you’re attending Wonder Con this weekend, they’ll have samples on hand for you to try on and see in person. You can shop their collection on the Hero Within site.
Also worth noting is the blog post their CEO Tony B Kim wrote in regards to the hate slung their way by some people because of the Wonder Woman jacket. Let’s all remember that geek fashion is for everybody and that everyone should be able to wear geek gear featuring their favorite characters regardless of gender. I most definitely applaud Tony Kim for confronting this hate head on and reaffirming that there’s nothing wrong with men wearing a Wonder Woman jacket.
We may have just gotten HerUniverse.com back but they’re already having a Spring Cleaning Sale! They’ve got a nice selection of Star Wars, Doctor Who, and Marvel pieces available and I pulled out a few of my favorites above. I can attest to how comfy the Imperial LOVE hoodie shirt is as I just bought one for myself a few weeks ago. Everything within the sale is 30% off and the rest of the site is 15% off right now. In other words… it’s a good time to pick up some more Her Universe pieces for a decent price if you’ve been considering it.
