Her Universe Launches New Marvel Fashions At NYCC And Hot Topic [NYCC 2016]
This weekend, Her Universe is unveiling a new collection of Marvel-inspired clothes at New York Comic Con, featuring dresses and jackets based on some of the company's most beloved female heroes, including Gwen, Peggy, Nat, and Carol. The collection will also be available at select Hot Topics and the Hot Topic web site.
On the left above is a blue Peggy Carter dress, which will go really well with your red hat, although I'm pretty sure that's not included. Then on the right is a jacket like the one the Scarlet Witch wears in the movies.
The Black Widow dress on the left doesn't have much about it that says "Black Widow," but you can never have too many little black dresses. And as near as I can tell, the dress on the right represents what Captain Marvel might look like if she was a character in DC's Bombshells.
And here's the centerpiece of the collection: A really awesome Spider-Gwen jacket, designed by Lindsay Hamilton for the 2015 Her Universe Fashion Show, which was such a hit with Her Universe that they decided to bring it to retail.
More info from the press release:
"We fell in love with Lindsay Hamilton’s Spider-Gwen design from the 2015 Her Universe Fashion Show at San Diego Comic-Con,” said Her Universe Founder Ashley Eckstein. “While she did not win the competition, Hot Topic loved her jacket so much that they asked if they could buy her design to sell in stores! It was truly a pleasure to work with Lindsay to bring her jacket to retail. It’s gorgeous!"
In addition to shining the spotlight on these beloved Marvel female Super Heroes via this exclusive new fashion collection, fans that visit the pop-up shop at New York Comic Con will also receive a coupon for a special offer valid only at Hot Topic stores and online.
"We have had many, many requests from customers for a fashion collection based on powerful female Super Heroes, so we are thrilled to partner with Marvel and Her Universe on this outstanding offering of dresses and outerwear,” said Cindy Levitt, Senior Vice President of Merchandising and Marketing at Hot Topic, adding “I can’t wait to get the 1940’s inspired Agent Carter dress myself!"
