Colette X DC Comics 75th Anniversary collection

I am sure we all came across the question or the theme party: which Super Hero would you like to be?

Well, now you can have a stylish answer thanks to the Colette and DC Comics collaboration.  A limited edition clothing and accessories collection was created to celebrate the comic book brands 75th anniversary. The collection was inspired by the DC super heros and  brought alive by French designers: Alexis Mabille for The Joker, Balmain and Lanvin for Batman, Karl Lagerfeld for The Green Lantern, Sonia Rykiel and Maison Michel for Wonderwoman, Pierre Hardy and Julien David for Superman, Thierry Lasry for Plastic Man, Repetto for Flash, and Roger Vivier for Catwomanthe Joker bow tie by Alexis Mabille, Balmain and Lanvin for Batman, Karl Lagerfeld for The Green Lantern, Sonia Rykiel and Maison Michel for Wonderwoman, Pierre Hardy and Julien David for Superman, Thierry Lasry for Plastic Man, Repetto for Flash, and Roger Vivier for Catwoman.

I had to pick Wonder Woman headband but you should really look at the full collection…

Curious cufflinks by Samuel Gassmann

Samuel Gassmann is better known for being a curator and an art consultant. Fewer know that he is also a designer since last Autumn as he has launched a collection of cufflinks. Most of his collection comprises either a simple disc, ‘cabochon’ or button but what varies the most are the special materials, embellishments and colours.

For instance, the ‘Circumstance’ selection features rare materials — ivory, French jet or coral — discovered mostly at Paris flea markets such as porcelain cabochons made using original ancient fèves.

Pradalphabet by M/M Paris

Art and design duo M/M Paris have reinvented the alphabet for Prada and will release five limited edition collectible t-shirts shortly. Each shirt will be decorated with one letter on the front and the Prada-M logo on the back. A special made-to-order service also exists, if you’d ever wanted your own name spelled out on a Prada t-shirt. (glad my name carries 7 letters at €175 each). Come with an exclusive 64 pages album explaining the project and also an essay by the Italian writer and philosopher Federico Nicolao.
