Lazy Oaf x Batman Collection Channels ’90s Batmania [link]
British creative label Lazy Oaf launched a Batman-inspired apparel collection for both men and women, just in time to celebrate the success of The Dark Knight Rises. Known for their bright, pop culture-infused graphics inspired by fast food and Disney, the East London-based design team’s take on Batman channels the fun, kitschy side of the Dark Knight. From cropped baseball tees to logo-splattered dresses, the Lazy Oaf x Batman collection is actually quite reminiscent of the material we saw in Batmania craze of the early ’90s that followed the popularity of Tim Burton’s first Batman film.
Some of the items are currently sold out, however Lazy Oaf will be restocking the collection within the next couple of weeks. Fortunately, this gives me enough time to scrounge up some of my leftover SDCC pocket change to pick up a few items for myself!

Check out this adorable outfit that I spotted on style-arena!
First and foremost, I absolutely adore that Wonder Woman t-shirt dress, but alas, we don’t have any Primarks in the US (blerg!). As for outfit coordination, I love how she took a simple, casual approach to coordinating this statement dress, providing appropriate accents with accessories in muted tones of red/white/blue. Personally, I would’ve swapped out the footless sheer tights for regular sheer tights, but otherwise, this is a great example of how to effortlessly put together a cute ensemble with one of your resized comic shirts.

Wonder Woman dress, by Sonia Rykiel.
For colette’s DC Comics 75th Anniversary Collection [circa 2010]
Not a day goes by where I don’t daydream about this dress. I love how Rykiel redesigned Wondy’s classic costume into a beautiful slip dress (complete with a gold belt and sheer, lacy stars) without looking tacky or costume-y.
