Sonia Rykeil for DC Comics: The Wonder Woman Dress (and more superhero fashion)

Love Wonder Woman? We do. She’s a superhero who wears control pants and knee boots, after all: what’s not to like?

If you do love WW, then, here’s an easy outfit for your next costume party. Your next costume party that’s only for very rich people, that is, because this little, er, wonder, will set you back $1,127. It’s by Sonia Rykeil, and is part of a collaboration between DC Comics, Collette, and a group of French fashion designers, all of whom took it upon themselves to create clothes worthy of superheroes.

Here’s Balmain’s offering:

Ah, only Balmain would think it was reasonable to charge $334 for a grey t-shirt, just because they added the silhoette of a bat to it. Still, nice work if you can get it, we guess.

Want some more?

Maison Michel’s Wonder Woman headband, just in case you need something to wear with the dress. $240

Joker bow tie by Alex Mabille, $146

Green Lantern gloves by Karl Lagerfeld, $517. Ouch.

Expensive work, being a superhero…

All of these are available at Colette.

    That dress looks like coming from a fancy dress shop and that is something I wouldn’t want, after spending 1000$ on it… Those gloves, though, look tempting. No idea where could I ever wear them, but still, they’re great! 🙂

    That dress looks really cheap for that price.
    It looks just like one of those last minute costume kits from shoppers drug mart.

    The headband is kinda cute. But not $240 worth of cute!

    they all look like crafts projects to me. Wouldn’t it have made more sense to do superhero lingerie since they all walk around in stuff way too flamboyant to wear out any time other than halloween?

    this is a case where the whole is not greater than the sum of it’s parts…designer/superhero collaborations have so much potential but a seriously dedicated fan and their 5 year old child would have come up with better items than any of the ones we just looked at

      Or, in fact, anyone with a reasonable understanding of the comics..I love Batman, and that shirt annoys me. If your going to do something, do it right.

    This Batman shirt I could have made for about 15 Euros. And mine wouldn’t have tears and holes all over.
    The dress looks terribly cheap and ill-fitting.

    I’d brand this as a major case of Daylight Robbery.

    By the way: The bow-tie seems to belong to the Riddler, not the Joker, don’t you think?

    Katy Perry, it’s all yours!
    I won’t be surprised if she’s spotted wearing one of these one day.

    The bowtie is awesome (though no idea how accurate it is having never read the comics or seen Batman and I’d never pay that price for something like that) but the dress and tshirt look ridiculously cheap. They look like knockoffs from a poor quality market stall. Funny how making the silhouette less stylised and more mundane is what allows them to call it ‘designer’ and charge stupid amounts.

    The dress genuinely looks like something a small chld could create from scraps of material :/

    I love the headband, even if the rest of it’s completely ridiculous. I want it! (Just not for that price.)

    This is a massive case of daylight robbery!
    I love superhero tee-shirts, but I just buy extra-large shirts from the little boys section at Target. They cost about fifteen dollars.

      Yeah, the thought of buying ANY kind of designer t-shirt makes my head hurt, especially when there are so many great (and cheap!) alternatives around!

    Ugh, I can only think of Lady Gaga looking OK in those guh-ross gloves…
