Posted by June 3, 2010 Comment

What do you get when you cross some of France’s greatest designers working through fashion emporium Collete with the iconography of DC Comics? You get some quite remarkable creations. That cost a hell of a lot.

From Flash ballerina shoes to diamond encrusted Plastic Man sunglasses, Bleeding Cool brings you the cutting edge of design to coincide with DC’s 75th Anniversary.

All prices are without VAT. So they cost even more…

Alex Mabille’s Joker Bow Tie €117.06

Silk.

A bow tie with fixed eyes, with an alarming eye which finally repeats funnily the strange Joker smile – Alex Mabille

Repetto’s Flash Ballerina Shoes €175.59

Suede.

We liked the idea to create a ballerina inspired by “Flash”, to keep only the flash of lighting of his great male powers and to put it in women feet! – Repetto.

Maison Michel’s Wonder Woman Headband €192.31

Golden hair jewel, glitters enamel star, limited edition

Envy to wake the ” Wonder Woman” who slumbers in you? Here is The head jewel that you need ! Make three tours and you are transformed! – Maison Michel.

Thierry Lasry’s Plastic Man Sunglasses €334.45

Acetate sunglasses, Swarovski crystal

I was always a fan of comics, Plastic man with his sunglasses is my favorite, I encrusted 200 crystals Swarovski on the right glass of his glasses – Thierry Lasry.

Karl Lagerfield’s Green Lantern Gloves €413.88

The great powers of Green Lantern are transformed thanks to the emerald of these gloves… In super power of elegance and seduction! – Karl Lagerfeld.
