Her Universe rolls out new Transformers line. Four shirts, two dresses and a pair of leggings.
And the second new Her Universe licensee is… Transformers? Looks like we’ll get a closer look on Thursday. Does this one excite you at all? Because I feel a resounding sense of ‘meh.’
Her Universe has announced the first wave of their new Marvel line! There’s more coming, including a Loki dress, Ashley Eckstein tells The Daily Dot. A Black Widow hoodie will be available at San Diego Comic Con. And Ashley herself will be voicing Dagger of Cloak and Dagger in the animated Ultimate Spider-Man.
The line is also part of Marvel’s own “Characters and Creators” initiative, which is targeting women and girls. (The new Ms. Marvel is an earlier example.)
Here’s your first look at the Her Universe boutique at Darth’s Mall (complete with dressing room,) plus the My Hero display and new dresses waiting for buyers at Disney World’s Hollywood Studios for Star Wars Weekends. The new collection we saw last week is debuting there, and most will be available online as well.
The first Weekend of the year begins Friday with guests Ahmed Best, Peter Mayhew, and Vanessa Marshall.
Her Universe will be adding three new licenses this summer, Ashley Eckstein tells Legion of Leia. Aside from Star Wars, Her Universe already has licenses for Doctor Who, Star Trek and The Walking Dead. (Syfy Channel is no longer on their site – expired?) Who do you hope will join them?
This is a last chance sale for some of the shirts – and I have to wonder if that means our last chance for the EU ones – and the sale will last through May 5.
At New York Fashion Week yesterday, Rodarte showed several dresses featuring Star Wars stills. The Star Wars dresses were made with the blessing of George Lucas (who was spotted at their show in 2012) and Disney, according to the L.A. Times. They won’t be for sale, but “will be available in the fall for editorial shoots and potential exhibits,” which means we may see them in magazines at the very least. You can get a closer look at the dresses on our Tumblr.
Rodarte is based in L.A. and has done film costumes in the past – for Natalie Portman’s Black Swan, for instance. So when asked about Episode VII, “Who wouldn’t’? I’m sure they are taken care of, but who wouldn’t do it?”
As a disciple of Tim Gunn, Santa Maul finds himself troubled by this trend of wearing leggings as pants, but those who are fit or brave enough to do so may find enjoyment in these bloodstripe leggings (also in yellow.) They are made to order and only available through the 6th, however. Santa Maul advises you to nab them before the lawyers do.
Her Universe has revealed their Black Friday lineup! The Millennium Falcon skirt and Hope tunic are repping for Star Wars…
