It seems like we’d be done with anything super this season — and guess what, the summer blockbusters are only just starting. We’ve already got Deadpool, Batman v Superman, Captain America: Civil War; X-Men: Apocalypse out in theatres today; and more upcoming ones in the form of both Suicide Squad and Doctor Strange. You know, if anyone needs a comprehensive list of super-movies that are out this year. Seriously, the silver screen’s just saturated with men and women in tights.
But if you’ve never thought superheroes make much sartorial sense (we’re looking at your Superman), think again. Valentino has come up with a stunning capsule collection that looks to DC Comic’s Wonder Woman, possibly the most well-known female superhero.
Her own solo movie will be out in 2017, but here, we’re privy to star-studded bags, shoes, clothes and accessories that actually look good. “This special capsule collection has been created by the Creative Directors as a tribute to all women, for their capacity of continuously balancing many things in life,” says the brand. Back in April, at three prime locales — Milan, Rome and New York — they also celebrated with a live performance by street artist SOLO, who livened up collection displays with his original murals that saw the superhero running across the walls of Valentino’s best boutiques. Basically, the world isn’t done with superheroes yet — not in the least the fashion world.
