In case you've been living under a rock somewhere on Mars and hadn't already heard, there's a new Batman movie coming out tomorrow and, well, it's supposed to be pretty terrific (but then again, aren't all Batman movies?).
For those of us who've been around the Batman block a few times and are feeling just a twinge of nostalgia for the good ol' pre-digital-special-efffects-days—Michael Keaton and Jack Nicholson circa 1989, anybody?—check out East London graphics-fashion collective Lazy Oaf's tribute to old school.
Lazy Oaf has designed a collection featuring the iconic yellow-and-black Batman logo us old folks remember (and love) from way back in the day. The label's tongue-in-cheek "Batman Happy Slob" T-shirt just hit stores and has already sold out at Colette in Paris (where all the cool kids shop—so we're taking this as a good sign).
Also in the collection? Some awesome shiny Spandex leggings, a skin-tight mini-dress, backpack, button-down, and some other general bat-themed products. Check out some of our favorites here:
The amazing leggings, about $50, above. And the killer hipster-superhero dress, about $100, below:
We're not usually fans of crop-tops, but this one, which costs about $50, is the coolest one we've seen all summer:
The sold-out-at-Colette T-shirt is still available on the Lazy Oaf site for about $50; and the must-have Batman accessory of the season is definitely this backpack, which'll cost you about $75:
Here's a bat-themed shirt that feels so '90s (Read: Awesome—wouldn't they go super with some Z. Cavariccis?) to us:
And this button-down shirt would've gone down a storm in 1989:
If you're planning on superhero-ing it this season, consider the Batman bodysuit—it goes well with most capes:
