Is Anyone Else Baffled by the Idea of a $200 Superhero T-Shirt?

Lauren Moshi and Warner Bros. are teaming up on a line of high-end clothing... but would you really BUY a $200 Wonder Woman t-shirt? We wouldn't

Some high fashion makeovers, I love—like those couture Disney dresses from Harrods. Others? …Not so much.

Take this, for example: According to WWD, designer and artist Lauren Moshi is teaming up with Warner Bros. to bring Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Batgirl, Supergirl, and Tweety Bird to a line of designer clothing. The six character-specific capsule collections will each consist of roughly 30 to 35 pieces, including t-shirts, dresses, tote bags, and more; they’ll be rolled out over a six month period, starting with Tweety in September and ending with Superman in February. Items will range in price from $98 to $202 and will be available at bloomingdales.com, revolveclothing.com, Lester’s Singer22, and the Lauren Moshi flagship store in Los Angeles.

I’ll be honest with you: I’m not totally sure how I feel about it. On the one hand, I love me a good pop culture tee as much as the next nerd-inclined gal; but on the other, I can’t help but feel that the “high fashion” angle kind of defeats the purpose of them in the first place. And at that price point? I mean, the Green Lantern shirt I got the last time I went to Six Flags was overpriced enough. I realize that most of the time, designer gear costs so darn much due to the materials used and the careful construction of each piece. However, that doesn’t mean I understand why a t-shirt would need the sort of materials and construction that make it cost more than about $25.  It’s a T-SHIRT. The POINT is that it’s a dress-down wardrobe piece. The ULTIMATE dress-down wardrobe piece, in fact.

Maybe that’s just me, though. What do you think, Bettys? Yea or nay on the whole $200 superhero t-shirt thing?

  1. Fine, this is really a vital input of you. From several days I was looking to get in such t-shirt and finally found here and I hope that I will purchases some sorts of these very soon because prices are also very reasonable. Thanks
