Ahead of the release of her first-ever solo film, Warner Bros. Consumer Products has announced a new Wonder Woman collection from some of the biggest names in fashion.
The collection, which hails from Warners, in partnership with DC Entertainment, sees designs from “world-renowned fashion house icons” to new and emerging designers. The purpose of the collection is said to make every woman feel like Wonder Woman in her own right, whether it be in the gym or the boardroom. Even more exciting is the fact that the line is inclusive, including plenty of offerings for male fans, too, from Hero Within and Ukonic.
“Wonder Woman has always empowered fans by embodying what it is to be powerful, confident and heroic, while also expressing her grace, compassion and femininity – in her upcoming feature film and for the last 75 years,” Soo Koo, Warner Bros. Consumer Products’ Chief Creative Officer, said in a statement. “With fashion as a daily form of self-expression, we’re thrilled to bring together some of the most well-known and exciting designers in the world to create a diverse collection of high-end collaborations and street-ready apparel and accessories for fashion devotees, casual shoppers and everyone in between.”
Fans of the iconic heroine will be glad to know the Prêt-à-porter pieces — hailing from celebrated designers such as Louis Vuitton, Versace, and Givenchy — are also set to benefit the LemLem Foundation, founded by international model and advocate Liya Kebede, whose mission is to improve African women’s lives by promoting access to healthcare and economic opportunities.
“We’re delighted and honored to be working closely with such world-renowned fashion designers to celebrate Wonder Woman and the inspiration she brings to all couture corners of the world for these exclusive collaborations,” Koo added.
Along with the Prêt-à-porter pieces, Warner Bros. is also teaming up with top global and mass market retailers to ensure fans of the heroine are able to secure pieces celebrating her 75 years in comics. There will also be an exclusive HSN collection set to hit the air beginning on June 1st at 9 p.m. EDT, marking HSN’s first-ever partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products.
Wonder Woman tells the story of the Amazon princess who, after discovering the body of American fighter pilot Steve Trevor washed ashore on the mystical island of Themyscira, sets out to bring an early end to World War I.
Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers … and her true destiny.
Opening June 2, the film stars Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Robin Wright, Lucy Davis, Lisa Loven Kongsli, Danny Huston, Elena Anaya, Ewen Bremner, Saïd Taghmaoui and David Thewlis.
